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.

Gold Touches All Time Nominal High

Sometimes high goes higher and low goes lower. This is the basic concept of trend following. We do not know the future. Most trades when trend following do not work but in those rare times…high goes higher. The case in point is Gold. Many trend followers including myself have been long gold on and off this year. It is not that we are gold bugs or that we are certain that gold can go to $5,000, rather we are simply following the trend. Currently that trend is up. I did not have inside information nor did I know the future when I took the gold trade. If gold continues to rise(without any predictions) I will just follow the trend. If it falls which it surely can…I will exit, say thank you and look for the next trade.

This is what trend following is. You do not need to watch CNBC or Bloomberg and listen to analysts that do not know anything more than you or me. All one has to do is look at the Swiss Franc. This was a favorite trade of trend followers as it skyrocketed to 140. I was long since March and had a good run until there was the Swiss Central Bank intervention.Within a couple of days the Swiss Franc fell to the 130 range and then a couple days later to the mid 125 range…Thank you good bye…& I exited. Followed the plan…yes I gave back a nice chunk of my profits but only liars can call bottoms and tops. Trend followers take pieces out of the trends. Anyway today the Swiss Franc the so called ” Safe Haven” has imploded and down versus the USD 7.25%. This is the reason one needs to trade with an exact plan. Exact plans do not negate draw downs or ugly durations of draw downs. Exact plans tries to mitigate the draw downs and avoid big moves. There are no guarantees however. Anything can happen and anything will happen.

As much as Gold has hit an all time nominal high it can implode to the downside and fall to $1200 or even less. Have a well thought out plan, follow it, have patience and if you can not find a commodity trading adviser who has.
