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.

MF Global victims start boycott of JPMorgan

MF Global victims start boycott of JPMorgan

A growing group of burned MF Global customers, ranging from hedge-fund traders to farmers, are calling for a boycott of JPMorgan Chase over fears that the bank is angling to get paid out first, before individual MF customers.
While anger aimed at JPMorgan and its chief, Jamie Dimon, has been building since MF’s Halloween bankruptcy, the Commodity Customers Coalition, a group that now boasts some 8,000 members, is getting organized when it comes to targeting the bank.
James Koutoulas, a commodities trader and CCC lawyer, called for a boycott after his failed efforts to get JPMorgan to come to the negotiating table.

JPMorgan, the firm’s largest creditor, and MF customers have clashed since the futures firm, once run by Jon Corzine, filed for bankruptcy on Oct. 31, revealing a $1.2 billion shortfall in customer funds.
The CCC held a conference call on Monday evening, asking its members to cut all ties — both business and personal — with JPMorgan, including credit cards, mortgages and savings and checking accounts.
“It’s in [JPMorgan’s] best interest to meet with me and have a dialogue,” Koutoulas said. “As I expected, they don’t even want to meet with me.”
At the same time, Koutoulas is angling to get JPMorgan dumped as the custodial bank for MF customer accounts. He plans to urge brokerage firms that took over MF accounts to ditch JPMorgan as their custodian and give the business to competing banks.
Koutoulas said he’s in talks with a competing custodian and a competing bank about taking over from JPMorgan and expects to have a couple of options lined up early next year.
A spokeswoman for JPMorgan declined to comment.
Word of the boycott spread quickly on LinkedIn and Twitter, where supporters are using the hashtag #boycottjpm.
Don Miller, an MF customer from the Boston area, said he started to scour his investment and brokerage accounts for signs of JPMorgan immediately.
He has since found one account with ties to Dimon’s firm, which he plans to either move or re-jigger so that JP Morgan does not benefit from his business.
“They closed a door to us that we thought would be helpful to all sides,” he said.
Triggering the boycott was the rejection of a proposal CCC made to Peter Pantaleo, a lawyer with Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, who is representing JPMorgan in the bankruptcy. Pantaleo didn’t return a request for comment.
Koutoulas said CCC suggested that JPMorgan buy customers’ MF claims — which he said are currently trading hands for roughly 87 cents — for 97 cents on the dollar. In turn, the customers would indemnify the bank from lawsuits seeking “additional damages.”
Such lawsuits could arise if JPMorgan, which also acted as MF’s custodian, was found to have been involved in an improper transfer of customers’ funds, legal experts said.
During recent Capitol Hill hearings over the missing money, Terrence Duffy, the CEO of MF’s clearinghouse, CME Group, said former CEO Corzine knew of improper transfers made with customers’ funds to one of MF’s European arms.
The Wall Street Journal reported last night on its Web site that sources said investigators are scrutinizing about $200 million moved to a company account at JPMorgan three days before MF Global filed for bankruptcy protection.
