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.

7 Basics of Trend Following
As those of you who regularly read this blog know, its main focus is trend following. But there are many in the blogging world that don’t know what that means, or worse, think it is some sort of Twitter craze. To help best bring in new readers to the world of trend following, we have listed below seven things you should know about it.
1. It is an investment strategy – A specialized one, trend following focuses on the long term trends in markets and is an attempt to take advantage of both the ups and downs of the market.
2. No forecasting – Those who do engage in trend following don’t necessarily attempt to predict prices or points in the market. It is more a strategy to predict a trend in the market, then make investments based on the trend.
3. Bubbles can be good – While most individuals have mutual funds and such that only make money in an up market, trend followers are constantly moving capital. This means that if there is any down turn, bubble, or other hiccup in the market, the trend follower can anticipate it and invest around it.
4. Reacting – Instead of trying to predict the future of the market, trend following focuses on reacting to the market, whether it be buying or selling. This often involves discipline and focus.
5. No rule breaking – Although there are many rules that have to be bent, trend following doesn’t usually employ them. Trades are made solely on what the current price is, how much an investor has in their portfolio, and how the market moves.
6. Not for the big house – Although the big trading firms employ many tactics in investing, trend following is generally not one of them. In fact, it is more likely to be implanted by the individual.
7. Anyone can do it – As demonstrated by R. Jerry Parker, anyone with the desire to learn can learn trend following. You don’t need a fancy finance degree, overpaid broker, or even hot tip from a friend to do it. Parker was a 25 year old accountant who had learned a trend tracking system and was able to earn $35 million.
