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.

Congressman Huelskamp, the Prairie is on Fire and reached the Barn!

Congressman Huelskamp’s statement last week on Missing MF Global client funds displays an unfortunate misunderstanding of the unfolding disaster. Like many, he appears to have been led to believe that the issue of the “The apparent commingling of funds” is the key crime. Yet it is possibly nothing more than a red-herring distracting all from the real crimes that continue this very moment.
The house is burning down now and he suggests we start looking for the cause. Fellow Kansans are being robbed and he tells us to “look over there….”
First, a brief background on a disaster that could have been contained, but is rapidly spreading: What happened is that the MF Global bankruptcy shows the Commodity Exchange Act to have no meaning and offer no protections to customers of the futures industry. What happened is that the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) completely ceded its jurisdiction to Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), a private securities investors’ insurance corporation. This horrendous abdication of its own Congressional mandate to protect the integrity of the US Futures industry and customers resulted in subordination of over 136,000 commodity customer accounts to only 400 securities accounts. That shocking step demonstrated to the world that that the US federal government protects neither customers nor the integrity of its own markets. Forget the “missing funds.” What about our “missing regulators”?
The fire spreading now: Congressman Huelskamp correctly states, “The missing $633 million represents approximately 12 percent of the segregated funds; the remaining 88 percent have been accounted for.” Yet there is no reason identified segregated client funds should not be immediately returned to all investors. This bizarre excuse of suspected commingling of funds or “missing” funds does not change the status of identified customer funds and client’s rights to these funds. Congressman Huelskamp does not ask why segregated and identified customer property is not immediately returned? We hope he soon will.
Court-appointed Trustee James Giddens’ filings and administrative orders show absolute ignorance of commodities law. Why was he appointed? How did that happen? Was it because he happens to sit on a board committee of SIPC? Will his demonstrated incompetence to handle the liquidation of an FCM be questioned?
All applaud Congressman Huelskamp’s attention this disaster. But right now and at this very moment, and to put the fire out, he must first ask these questions and many more. Instead of asking us to “look over there,” he and his Congressional colleagues must rapidly get the answers if they hope to look their constituents in the eye.
