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.

MF Global Outrage

I am writing to express my outrage and disgust at the way government and industry regulators, together with the CME, handled customer segregated funds and open trading positions in response to the bankruptcy of MF Global. By freezing both open positions and cash in supposedly segregated accounts for nearly a week, futures traders were left in the worst possible situation, i.e., with 0% access to their assets, but 100% of their risk.

I am currently the owner/CEO of a commodity trading firm (CTA) in Boca Raton (FL) and have been actively involved with futures markets for over 30 years, including several years as a hedger with a major U.S. grain company. Futures markets play a vital role in price discovery and risk management for producers and consumers of many important food commodities, as well as industrial inputs and financial market prices such as interest rates. By failing to maintain the sanctity of customer segregated funds, the CME and regulators threaten the viability and future of this industry. This failure, in turn, threatens investor confidence in all forms of investment accounts, including bank and brokerage accounts.

Urgent and forceful action is needed to restore confidence in the markets and rectify the unjust (and probably criminal) appropriation of MF customer assets. In this regard, we fully endorse the recommendation and comments of Andy Waldock, a Chicago-based asset manager and trader:
The $700 million dollar shortfall should be covered, whether through the joint efforts of the FCM members of the exchanges or, the exchanges themselves. To put this in perspective, the top 10 FCM’s have a combined equity of more than $1 trillion dollars and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange is valued at more than $17 billion. Therefore the $700 million is a manageable number as a portion of this capital pool.
Customers must be made whole in order to maintain the integrity of the exchanges and instill the confidence in the investing public. The longer this thing is drawn out, the more likely this erosion of confidence in the governing bodies will devolve into retail investor panic. The remaining FCM’s as well as the exchanges must do everything in their power to prevent an easily covered black eye of a monetary issue from becoming a public perception issue more akin to a terminal disease.
