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.

The Markets Know Better than Anyone

I was contacted the other day regarding my blog on trend following & commodity trading and was told the ideas I try to put forth are not interesting. No one wants to know about psychology of trading, they want to be told exactly what to buy or sell in order to make money. Hearing this statement explains why the majority of “want to be” commodity traders & trend followers never succeed. The fact is the markets know better than anyone. No one knows the future. It is ridiculous to think someone can predict the markets accurately over time.

In my opinion one of the most time tested ways of succeeding is trend following. Do not get me wrong. Trend following as easy as it is to do…is one of the hardest things to actually accomplish. With trend following you do not need to know where any market is going. All you need to do is have a well thought out plan with every possible event already thought out, heavy risk control & money management and be disciplined & patient to let the plan work. People love to be right. I do not need to be right. I need to stay out of big trouble, try to mitigate my draw downs as best as possible, I need to be available when there are trends and I need to always temper my expectations. With even these attributes -trend following is still a major challenge. Trend following & commodity trading is not retirement in a box. It takes a great deal of work and time.

Once you realize there is no magic system or magic guru commodity trading advisor and that no one knows the future you are on your path of long term compounding money over time in the commodity markets.

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.
