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.

Trend Following is DEAD!

I was told this by a perspective investor that “Trend Following is DEAD”. I had to chuckle as he decided that just today trend following passed away. Trend following has worked since the times of Joseph in the bible with his great wheat trade as well as all the success of Richard Donchian to Ed Seykota to current commodity trading advisers such as Tom Shanks to David Druz. Of course I did not argue the point and thanked him for his time and silently thought to myself I feel sorry for him.

The reality of trend following at least in my experience is this. One year…I can be down slightly…minus -5% lets say for example…the next year …I can be flat..profit only 2%…and then the next year I might have a great year of lets say 50% ( these are just examples). If you average the 3 have an average rate of return in the 16% range.

What is so terrible with that?

This is exactly what trend following is. There are no guarantees…past results are not indicative of future results…however when it seems that it is time to give up, some trends suddenly appear. Trend following is not easy..Trend following is not retirement in a box.

If you want to try to succeed in trend following really internalize the fact nothing has to happen. You are not entitled to profits. When profits appear( as rare as they do) they seem to make up for all the long periods that nothing happens.
