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.

Were the Turtle traders Just Lucky?

Were the Turtle traders Just Lucky?
There is the saying…that being in the right place in the right time is the key to success. The turtles under the tutelage of Richard Dennis and Bill Eckhardt gained tremendous returns in the 1970s up to the mid 1980s. Trend following was the rage and fortunes were made. After the mid 1980s many of the turtles experienced severe draw downs and even Richard Dennis stopped trading. There was nothing magical about the turtle idea. It encompassed position sizing, pyramiding, correlation limits and cutting down position size during draw downs. There are those that believe that market conditions are changing, and systems need to adapt to these changing conditions. The reality is that Hawksbill, EMC and Chesapeake are all around today and graduates of the turtle program. They have adapted to the changes in the markets and lowered their volatility. The reality in trend following is we do not know the future. There will be periods that are better than others. I like making the analogy to fishing. If there are fish, we will eat fish. If there are no fish we will not catch any. No one promises us that trend following is easy. However trend following is a strategy that is liquid and transparent. I know I will make money, however I do not know when or in what markets.
