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.

JP Morgan Segregated Accounts

Below are some thoughts posed by one of the members of the client committees.


On JPMorgan’s website, they promote their specialized expertise in managing customer segregated funds as required by CFTC rules, eg: “Cash deposited is held in trust ledger accounts with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. These accounts are designed to meet the specific requirements of CFTC Rules” (from one of the pdf links, see below). Perhaps they (and other banks holding customer segregated funds) assumed legal duties to MFG customers (1) to not permit MFG to commingle non-seg funds with the seg funds and (2) to not permit MFG to transfer assets out of the trust accounts except to regulated clearinghouses, directly to customers, or to other qualifying customer seg accounts at qualifying institutions. In other words, once they accepted the assets knowing the regulated character of the assets, they became legally responsible directly to the customers of MFG to make sure none of the assets were misused by MFG. This position is reinforced by the fact that they actively solicited the funds to be managed in accordance with CFTC rules.
