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.

Letter To the CME Chairman Duffy regarding MF Global Bankruptcy

Below is a letter to send to the CME if you feel they have not acted in your best interests regarding the MF Global Bankruptcy. Fill in your details and email them or send them via the mail system.

CME Chairman Terry Duffy

Chicago, Illinois 60606

Re: MF Global customer accounts

Dear Mr. Duffy:

I am tangled in the MF Global Bankruptcy and request CME Group’s help to facilitate the distribution of customer-segregated funds by guaranteeing the entire deficiency estimated to be $633 million.
Because CME Group served as MF Global’s Designated Self-Regulatory Organization and knew or should have known that MF Global was sanctioned and paid substantial fines for lapses in supervision and recordkeeping, the time is now for CME Group to solve this problem before legions of lawyers target their sights on CME Group and this matter spends years in litigation. As the CME Group must be aware, affected customers now question whether CME Group: (1) properly supervised the segregation of customer funds, (2) performed adequate financial surveillance, and (3) truly seeks preferential treatment and distribution of customer segregated funds by the Bankruptcy Court. (See CME Clearing Financial Safeguards publication Careful review of the recent CME Group press release reveals that it is simply a public relations move designed to look as if CME Group is taking leadership in this matter. However, CME Group’s promises to the Bankruptcy Trustee do nothing to actually guarantee that customers with segregated funds are made whole and receive the entirety of their accounts because only $50 million has been pledged to damaged market participants. Further, the failure to make MF Global customers whole undermines the rationale for the Dodd-Frank requirement that over-the-counter derivatives be cleared on an exchange. CME Group thus risks a substantial loss in business unless this matter is immediately resolved.
In addition to preventing lengthy and protracted litigation, CME Group decision to guarantee the entire short-fall would result in: (1) a restoration of confidence in commodity and futures markets, (2) FCMs that received court-ordered transfers developing long-term customer relationships, (3) individual brokers again serving their clients, (4) a return to normal and profitable trading levels on commodities and futures exchanges, and (5) avoidance of unnecessary governmental regulation because of the clear demonstration that industry self-regulation can work and protect clients. I also remind you that your shareholders are being affected by lower volumes and CME Group has a duty to take all efforts to maximize shareholder value by taking prudent action and prevent this impending financial train wreck.
Because I have been a very satisfied commodities and futures trader for many years and would like to resume my trading activity as soon as possible, any and all CME Group efforts to bring this matter to a prompt resolution would be greatly appreciated. However, please be advised that as each day passes that I am frozen from my money, the more likely it is that I will engage legal counsel to sue CME Group for the damages I have suffered.
