Andrew Abraham

andy-0101 My name in Andrew Abraham. I have been investing in commodities and managed futures since 1994. I adhere to the philosophy of trend following. Trend following stresses a disciplined approach to commodity/ futures trading. Successful trend following and commodity futures investing requires patience, discipline and actively managing the risk. What sets me apart from other traders is that I am not only concerned about the return on investment but how much risk I will have to tolerate to achieve my goals.

Even the Saviest investors in Commodities can get it wrong

Last week will be remembered for commodity traders and trend followers for years and probably decades. There is a huge misconception out there that even the savviest investors in commodities can not lose money. Well, anything can happen and anything does happen. That is why it is so important to have risk management and a full plan with rules for every event.

Last week Clive Capital who is running approx $5 Billion dollars was on the wrong side of some of the commodity markets. It was reported they lost $400 million dollars on crude and were down on the week approximately 8%. I do not think that Clive Capital did anything wrong nor many other commodity trading advisors. The markets took an abrupt u turn and many of the long existing trends reversed. This happens when trend following and commodity trading. One has to give the markets room to breathe otherwise you will be taken out in the daily noise.

As much as I am commodity trader with years of experience, this experience has taught me that no one knows anything more than me( or anyone), no one knows the future( you do not need to know the future in order to make money) and mostly that there are no gurus. No one avoids the losses. Losses are a natural part of trading commodities. When you try to avoid them, they only magnify.

So much for my PEP talk (Patience,Reasonable Expectations and Power of compounding).

Trading futures and options involves substantial risk of loss no matter who is managing your money and is not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
