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.

Investment Strategies for Bull Markets and Bear Markets -Trend Following?

Do you think that buy and hold could be considered one of the more favorable investment strategies in a bear market? If you are simply buying and holding, your investment will go down and you will suffer a financial loss. Maybe it will come back or as in the case of Japan the stock market there is still down from 39,000 and is currently approx 9,000. Another easy example is the Nasdaq. It still is far from it’s peak many years ago. If you bought and held a Nasdaq index fund you would still be under water.

So what does an investor do in order to attempt to compound their money over time? Yes there are stock market strategies and other investment strategies out there. I do believe people can compound money through various avenues. People have made tremendous money over time via real estate. However the most recent turn down impoverished many. More so in real estate you can stand on your head and spit wooden nickels and you might not be able to sell your property.

My way of compounding money over long periods of time is trend following a broad basket of commodities. I identify the strongest ones as well as the weakest. In other words I am willing to partake both in bull markets as well as bear markets. The key for me is to “try” to put on small risks per trade to see if the trade will work. A small risk means that I measure the difference from my entry to exit and willing to risk approx no more than 1% of my trading account on any trade. I know that most of my trades will not work and I do not mind having these small losses. To further explain, for example if my account size is $100,000 I will not put on a trade if I am risking more than $1,000. Every trade has a risk of at least the $1,000 and possibly more.

This $1,000 is not written in stone because the market can gap or go limit up or down and I can not exit and I could experience a greater loss than the $1,000. When we are trend following we are dealing in uncertainty and risk. Every trade has risk. I attempt to mitigate the risks when trading, but it is not 100%.

With that said…when I am trend following I just flow with the markets. You never know how far a trade will work as well as how quick the trade will end with a loss. You need a complete plan to trend follow in order to “try” to mitigate the inherent risks. Trend following and trading is not for everyone. There are always draw downs and long periods of elusive profits.

If you are trading without a plan you will surly run into some serious situations. I have seen even professional mutual fund managers freeze. If you have a plan…you follow it. You need the discipline to make it work over time. Trend following is a marathon. Trend following is not simply buying a system or a trading robot.

My course and webinars are not the Holy Grail as it does not exist. You will learn how to think like a trend follower as well as I will give you the exact methodologies in which I trade. If you want to learn how to trade for a living, I invite you to be one of my students.

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. THE RISK OF LOSS IN TRADING COMMODITY FUTURES, OPTIONS, AND FOREIGN EXCHANGE (“FOREX”) IS SUBSTANTIAL.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS

Bottom line is that the majority of the people I have met on this trip have struggled in one way or another and are tired of just trusting so called Guru money managers.
