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.

Being Right when you Trend Follow

The only certainty in trading is uncertainty. Due to this constant uncertainty it is imperative to manage the risks. We are surrounded by risks. Money management and trading psychology are some of the most important and yet most ignored topics in trading. New traders think trading is EASY. I actually presented at a trading conference my proprietary trading with the title “How Easy it really wasn’t”. New traders have this “Just Show” me that magical indicator and they are off to the alchemy printing press.

Your profits come from a long series of trades. Trading is not wrong or right. It is about following a trading plan that is robust…trades all markets the same as well as you manage the risks. When I put on a trade in most cases I am risking much less than 1% of my account size. Closer to half of 1 percent. When a trade does not work as many don’t I do not feel any anxiety or threat. I take a small loss and move on. My next winner is out there…I just do not know when. I make myself available. I must be consistent. Do the same thing over and over again. Eventually I “Stumble” into some rare big winning trades. It is never easy. I do not have to be right. There is no such thing. I just need to follow my rules. Think in probabilities.

Just keep on putting on the trades. Accept the fact the trade does not have to work. Accept the fact that you can definitely lose money putting on this trade…however you completely accept it. By risking small percentages of your account, these losses should not bother you. Know exactly when to exit with a profit and exit with a loss.
