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.

One of the most important attributes of commodity trading

One of the most important attributes of commodity trading and trend following is ” TIME”. Really time is such an important ingredient of successful commodity trading. Too many are focused on trying to find that ” perfect indicator or system”. What commodity traders need to focus on in my opinion is a robust mechanical trading system that is applicable to all markets and time frames and all the risk management issues. There is no Holy grail out there. All mechanical systems as well as all commodity trading advisors only can make money when there are trends. All mechanical systems and all commodity trading advisors will go through draw downs and even periods of extended times that profits are not generated. This is the truth about trend following and commodity trading.

Getting back to my point, successful trading needs ” Time”. Time means time to be available for eventual trends. Time means being patient when trends are not present. Time means having the ability to compound money over time. Trend following and commodity trading is not a get rich quick scheme. Personally it has been a compound my way to wealth over a long period of many years.

Many are satisfied with their 401k plans in which they are committed to the stock market for years. These same people do not have the same thought process when it comes to commodity trading. I look at my trend following as a 401k idea and one of the investment ideas I plan on for the rest of my life. The key for me has been to compound money. The idea is what will my account look like in 10 years or even 15 years. $100,000 over 10 years at 15% turns into $400,000 and over 15 years the compounding gets around to $800,000. This is the idea of time to let the trading plan work. Any trade, any month nor even any year means anything. It is what does my account look like in 10 years. If you jump around when there are draw downs you may never get to this goal. You need to be patient, diligent, temper expectations and utilize a robust trading methodology with strong risk and money management.

Make time for your commodity trading to work.

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.
