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.

When Trend Following Buy Strength & Sell Weakness

One of the basic tenants that I follow when I run my trend following methodologies is I attempt to buy strength if I can put on a low risk trade and sell weakness if I can put on a low risk trade. When I say low risk…I am referring to how much I am willing to lose on a trade when it does not work. In most cases it is less than 1% of my account size. The other issue is that most of my trades do not work. I end up having many small losses…many small profits…and rare trades that really work.

What else is probably different about me than I say to myself…how much is this going to cost me to see if it works. Most people believe when they put on a trade it has to work & be profitable. I know I am playing the odds and I have a slight edge.

I determine strength and weakness via a smoothed rate of change or a relative strength idea. I am basically measuring momentum and want to try to jump on trends that are both moving upwards and downwards. Almost like jumping on to a moving train ,not knowing how far it will continue.
