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.

Would you have been proud to have worked at MF Global?

There is a stigma now with MF Global. Many that I have spoken to are angry at what happened to their careers at MF Global. They are embarrassed to having been associated with MF Global.

A recent article in New Jersey papers brings out such a story about an aide to Corzine.

Josh Zeitz has wiped out the year and half that he worked for MF Global as per his Linkedin page.

Below is the whole article…

Former Gov. Jon Corzine is not the only person who would like to put the meltdown of MF Global in his rearview mirror.
His longtime aide and spokesman, Josh Zeitz, has already begun purging from his memory the year-and-a-half or so that he worked for the bankrupt Wall Street firm, which is now the subject of federal investigations into more than $1 billion of clients’ money that is missing.
When listing his work experience on LinkedIn, a professional networking website, Zeitz omits his role as chief of staff at MF Global. While at the firm, Zeitz helped manage Corzine’s affairs.

He now works as a senior vice president at the MWW Group, a New Jersey-based public relations, marketing and lobbying company.
Zeitz did not respond to an e-mail message seeking comment.
Nor is Zeitz the only one with selective memory when it comes to résumés. Maria Comella, Gov. Chris Christie’s communications director, omits her work on Sarah Palin’s 2008 vice presidential campaign when listing her previous jobs on the governor’s official state website. However, she has no qualms about mentioning her campaign work for former Mayor Rudy Giuliani of New York City or President George W. Bush’s re-election campaign.
Comella declined to comment on why she omitted her tour of duty with Palin’s unsuccessful campaign.
Matching wits
Speaking of MF Global, in a congressional hearing on the collapse of the company and its missing funds, U.S. Rep. Timothy Johnson (R-Ill.) badgered Corzine about whether he would use his personal fortune to compensate victims.
Turns out the two sparring partners go way back: Both were Phi Beta Kappa graduates of the University of Illinois, class of 1969. They did not know each other at the time — “It’s a big campus,” a spokesman for Johnson said.
Corzine dodged Johnson’s pointed question by saying he was hopeful the money would be recovered.
‘We wuz wrong again?’
When it comes to providing financial information to the U.S. Department of Education, New Jersey doesn’t seem to have, well, learned anything.
A report released two weeks ago describing how much the states spend to educate their neediest students made little mention of New Jersey.
Why? According to the report, because “one state reported expenditure data that included expenditures from federal funds and therefore could not be included in the analyses.”
A spokeswoman for the state Department of Education, Allison Kobus, insisted her office followed the rules, which included a “preferred definition” about what information to include, but did not explain what would be “discluded” from the federal analysis.
With apologies from The Auditor to the Philosopher of Montclair, this sounds like déjà vu all over again. In August 2010, New Jersey lost $400 million in federal education funds in a competition called “Race to the Top” because it submitted incorrect information.
But this time, Bret Schundler, the former education commissioner left holding the bag for the administration’s $400 million misunderstanding, isn’t around to blame. Someone over there had better duck.
Pssst! Romney’s the one
Former Gov. Tom Kean hasn’t said so publicly, but he told The Auditor he’s quietly backing Mitt Romney for president.
Kean, a moderate Republican, said he endorsed Romney the same way he endorsed John McCain four years ago — by cutting his campaign a $2,500 check.
“I like governors and he’s been a governor of a Northeast state, which means he understands our part of the country,” Kean said. “Everything he’s ever run, he’s done well.”
Did Christie’s endorsement of Romney play a role, The Auditor wondered.
“Yeah, it helped,” Kean said. “No question about it. He’s the governor.”
Loretta and Chris, perfect together
Chummy is not the word that comes to mind when talking about Christie and Democratic state Sen. Loretta Weinberg. She has been one of his most vocal critics, and on the receiving end of his tongue-lashings more than once.
After all, they ran on opposing tickets in the 2009 governor’s race. Then, in April, Christie famously told reporters to “take the bat” to the Bergen County grandmother. In return, Weinberg has whacked Christie over cuts to women’s health and his frequent out-of-state travel.
But has the unlikely pair turned a corner?
On Thursday, Weinberg welcomed the governor to Teaneck and sat in on a news conference about reforming payouts for unused sick days. When Christie wrapped up his spiel, he joked that he and Weinberg “will always say what we think” to one another.
“We respect each other a lot more than we let on,” Christie said. But he couldn’t help adding playfully, “She’s a big pain in the neck.”
To which she responded, “You’re not the first person to say that.”
