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.

Commodity Trading Adviser Results Mid Month Aug 2011

As the stock market has been tanking there has been great interest in how CTAs are faring. As I have invested in numerous commodity trading advisers as well as my own CTA I am more than curious. As much as any trade or month or even any year does not matter in critical times I want to be abreast.

The worst news came out of Dighton which is down between a -70% or greater. One of the leading Commodity trading Advisers for this month is Northfield Trading, LP who is up 15.79%. Before you get excited I have been invested with him almost 3 years and really nothing has happened. I remind you nothing has to happen and I am in it for the long term as long as there is not a strategy shift. Dunn Capital Management has been outperforming this year Aug +8.77% YTD 10.99%. FORT, LP has been very strong all year up 29.01% in one program and approx 18.68% in another. 2100 Xenon in his aggressive fund has fared well also YTD up 15.56%. Some of the larger CTAs are down slightly such as Transtrend B.V. -7.79% YTD. Altis Partners a fund that did great last year is struggling down -21%. Drury Capital is down approx -15%. The huge CTA Winton Capital Management Limited is up approx 5%. On a personal level my CTA program results for August have been positive so far, up 4% in the Global Diversified and 3.5% up in the Diversified for Aug 2011 YTD approx up 7% and 1% but that can change for the better or worse.

The key to long term success when investing with CTAs is really know and understand the strategy. More so temper your expectations & have the discipline & patience to stay with the managers during the inevitable draw downs & compound money over long periods of time.
