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.

How to Avoid the Next Madoff

So many people were caught off guard when they invested with Bernie Madoff. I had a chance to invest with Madoff and I just did not understand how he can not have loses. Loses are as natural as breathing when trading. If you want to avoid the next Madoff…below are my simple rules…
1. There is no free lunch in the markets. 1% per month is not realistic and will end up having a major draw down down the road.
2. Be wary of option sellers. Option selling is a great strategy when it works until you have a blow up. I have personally seen the mad cow scenario. I watched a trader successfully for years sell options only to blow up when the mad cow crisis hit. His account blew up and was left with a huge margin call.
3. Only invest with licensed and registered traders. Commodity trading advisors must be registered with the NFA. Check out their record
4. Do a background search on any manager you think to invest with. There is intellus for a small fee of less than a $100 dollars you can verify many details. One example I personally had was I thought to invest with a CTA however I saw on intellus his property taxes were past due. This was a big warning sign for me.
5. Even though I hold this to a lesser degree ask for references
6. Make sure you 100% understand the strategy and my proverbial question for any commodity trading advisor is ” What can go wrong”. When I answer this …I say EVERYTHING…we are dealing in risk… our job is to try to manage the risk.
7. I prefer humble stable managers who are married and with kids.

I am sure this is not an all exhausting list…however if something seems too good to be true…it probably is…
Do your homework.
