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.

Multiple Time Frames in a Trend Following System

Thought to share an idea with my readers and students. I have a new student who trades metals and some other futures contracts. He did last year 120% and he was slightly frustrated. He was not consistent as well as he did not grasp position sizing or how to limit his draw downs. After discussing at length we both agreed he can probably earn more than 120%. I suggested a simple multiple time frame trend following system. It is not the Holy Grail. There will be always be losses and draw downs…However when implemented it strives to keep losses small..& …let profits run.

You can use it on any time frame and any market. The concept can be traded with daily charts and weekly charts…or hourly and daily. The basic premise is that you want the lower time frame to be insync with the higher time frame. Many authors have spoken about this over the years (most notably Alexander Elder).

I simply look at for example a daily 13 period Exponential moving average as well as a weekly 13 period exponential moving average. When they are both up…You are long…when one up and one down…you are on the sidelines…when both are down…you are short…there are additional money management rules I have.


It is a very simple and easy to follow concept. I discussed the concept of multiple time frames in my book
The Bible of Trend Following

If you would like a free copy of this excel trend following system….Just email me…

My goal is to help you become the trader you want to be. There is no hype…just reality in what to expect when trend following…
