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.

Hedge Funds are Not Hedging Risk

There are many in the investment world that believe that they can negate risk by investing in Hedge Funds. The truth can not be further removed. There are those in the investment world that think that there exist gurus who can grind out profits for them regardless of market conditions. The truth can not be further removed. There are those in the investment world that believe big Hedge Funds can mitigate risk. The truth can not be further removed. Everything has risk. Trend following has risks and is not for everyone. One has to address the risks and not have their head in the sand.

Regarding Hedge Funds,all one has to do is look at the recent returns of John Paulson and Salida Capital. Paulson is down in the mid 40% range and Salida capital is down approx 49%. Not that I am judging, but these funds made big bets. When they worked they benefited and when they did not, they lost big. This is contradictory to my thought process regarding risk management. All emphasis needs to be placed on risk per trade, risk per sector, open trade equity risk versus core equity, margin to equity as well as dollar risk per contract. Even with this approach there will be draw downs and loses. There is no such thing as low risk, especially in this environment.

My suggestion is to have a realistic expectation for returns as well as risk. Realize that there are no such things as Gurus. Realize that even when a manager is managing billions he is not infallible and is suggest to the whims of the market. Even managers with billions under management can blow up. I have seen it over and over again. Realize you need to address risk on every level and even with this you will still have surprises.
