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.

Fraud and More Fraud Now with Goldline Coins

It is probably the economy that is bringing out the worst in people. As gold has been rallying there have been those that have ” Thrown” ( they don’t have a plan) at Gold ETFs, Gold stocks, Jon Paulson’s gold fund,Superfund’s gold fund as well as gold coins. Gold coins have been in the past and probably always be ground zero for fraud. I have had numerous discussions with friends, family and even my children on gold. Gold coins were never an option. I am probably biased as I am a trend follower, I suggested futures contracts only when the trend is up & one can put on a low risk trade. People were shocked to know ….Gold can fall in price..DUH. Everything has risks.

As much as nothing ever changes such as Refco crashing from fraud and now possibly MF Global if they really did touch client segregated accounts but there is Goldline. Goldline was ripping off clients when selling them gold coins. The proverbial bait and switch. Buy one gold coin get something of less value if you were lucky. Well Goldline has been busted. The funny thing is that they even used right wing spokespeople such as Glenn Beck to give them credibility. Well they are facing the music.

Attorneys with City Hall’s Consumer Protection Unit said Tuesday they have filed criminal charges against Santa Monica-based Goldline International for allegedly using conservative spokespeople such as Fox News’ Glenn Beck in a “bait-and-switch” operation to sell overpriced gold coins.The 19-count criminal complaint was filed Tuesday against Goldline, one of the nation’s largest precious metal dealers, and several key executives and salespeople. The charges, all of which are misdemeanors and carry a maximum penalty each of one year in jail and fines of between $1,000 and $10,000, include grand theft by false pretense, false advertising, conspiracy and elder abuse involving transactions that took place over the last three years. The defendants are expected to be arraigned at the Los Angeles Superior Court, Airport Courthouse on Jan. 4, 2012, said Adam Radinsky, head of the Consumer Protection Unit.

Maybe I have an mental issue, I try to learn from every instance. This gold coin issue I knew was a scam. I am still resolving in my mind on how best to learn from MF Global’s current situation ( if they stole from clients accounts) . It is very hard to defend against fraud. Mainly what I gleaned from all of this…diversify…diversify…and if there is smoke…there could be fire & GET OUT.
