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.

Does the Integrity of the US Financial System matter after MF Global

I really have a hard time understanding this whole mess. Farmers, ranchers and hedgers as well as virtually everyone in the futures markets has lost any sense of confidence in the integrity of the US Financial system.

When client accounts can be pillaged nothing is safe!

What I do not understand is the dragging on the part of the CME or the CFTC which was supposed to insure the integrity of the US Futures markets or even the Obama administration. I have been bombarded by many who suggest to boycott the CME. Maybe they are right. Why give them business when they were suppose to be supervising MF Global and failed in that task. How you do trust them at all? More so with their statements and PDF on financial security many are preparing lawsuits against the CME. The CME has a tremendous amount to lose and I do not understand why they don’t realize it.

I have received countless emails from foreigners that NOW DO NOT TRUST THE US FINANCIAL MARKETS!

This is not going to be business as usual when client accounts can be subordinated to claims of creditors as JP Morgan is attempting with the Honorable Judge Martin Glenn.

What I do not understand is that the US Fed will consider bailing out European banks rather than protecting it’s own citizen farmers ,ranchers and hedgers.

President Obama promised this week that Americans were “ready to do our part” in dealing with the euro crisis. Why isn’t Obama looking to protect the interests of the US Financial markets?

Unless all clients of MF Global are made 100% whole the CME, the CFTC as well as all others are deluding themselves thinking that it will be “Business as usual or the US markets still have integrity”.

    “Unless all clients of MF Global are made 100% whole…”

    Even if they are made whole at some point, the fact that they aren’t whole after five weeks has devastated confidence in American brokerages, exchanges, financial regulators, and American law as it pertains to financial markets.
