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.

Mary Shapiro & CFTC Working Overtime to Spin the story on the MF Global Fraud

It is unbelievable that Govt officials can make statements such as Mary Shapiro the 29th Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The nation’s top securities regulator, Mary Schapiro, told NBR that regulators are not to blame for the collapse of MF Global. She said the Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulators are investigating what exactly went wrong at the firm. Quoting her ” I think we should be clear, MF Global’s failure is a result of MF Global decisions, investment decisions, bad decisions and not the result of regulatory failure in my view”.

Well that is all good and not true.

According to CFTC rules ( 1.25 and 1.29) commodities firms are not required to disclose to customers when they invest customer funds in investments allowed under section 1.25 of the code. The truth is that the Regulators have not been regulating. The regulators were not and are not now protecting the integrity of the markets.

I have attached a link from the CFTC

More so click below to read the comments that MF Global & Newedge argued to the CFTC


Please note these words that stick out in MF Global & Newedge comment letter

Under Rule 1.25, we are not aware of any FCM that has been unable to
liquidate and provide to their customers upon request any segregated funds invested
under Rule 1.25 (or under Regulation 30.7 either, for that matter). “

Please tell that to clients of MF Global who have frozen segregated funds.

If you want your hair to stand up. All one has to do is look at the list of banks and brokerages who also have commented.

Short list for your review
JP Morgan
Brown Brothers Harriman

What do you think is safe? How about NOTHING as long as there are rules like rule 1.25 and 1.29 and segregated funds of clients can be used for the benefit of the firms

The CFTC and SEC can claim regulators have done their job, I ask you ..what do you think? I ask you to contact the Congressmen & women & Senators who are on various Agricultural committees and Finance committees. Let them hear your outrage. Let them investigate the CFTC as to why they would permit rules such as 1.25 and rules 1.29 in which firms like MF can take and use segregated client accounts. If not; one can easily forget about the integrity of the US Financial and Banking system. This system is based on trust. This trust has been violated and is being allowed to be violated by not releasing the funds in the client segregated funds at MF Global.
