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.

Managing the Risks When Trend Following

Managing the Risks When Trend Following is one of the sections of my manual that I will be teaching Trend following to a group of traders starting soon. A colleague of mine from the UK reviewed this section and below are his thoughts.

“Andy shares his long standing experience in trend trading, providing very useful trading techniques and approaches to help you avoid losses and maximize gains. These concepts have stood the test of time and can be applied in a variety of market conditions. Of greater importance still is the emphasis placed on risk management, which allows you to remain in the game even under highly uncertain trading conditions.”

1 comment to Managing the Risks When Trend Following

  • I have been practicing spread betting for a few months now and I’m quite good at it. I’m now looking to go live with it as I have some money I’m willing to put to risk.

    What I would like to know is if stocks are the best investments to go by if you want to commit yourself to spread betting rather than currencies and commodities in terms of:

    1) trend trading or going with the flow by first checking the news on the Bloomberg channel or something, and then by following the trend ride it takes you based on the news reports?


    2) Position sizing and overall risk management, i.e. are stocks better to trade than the likes of currencies or commodities in terms of the amount of money per point you put at risk?

    Is trading the stock markets the best way to go if you want to do spread betting for a living? Please, I’m willing to learn what it takes to become a successful trader, I just need some advice if possible. Thanks for all help.
