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.

Driving, Fear when Trading and Trend Following

Fear when trading and trend following is debilitating. When you are in a state of fear you negate the possibilities of endless opportunities. The way I “try” to put fear in my small pocket is know ahead of time how much I am attempting to lose in a trade. I think that is just one of thousands of trades and that the only way I will be successful is that I must maintain consistency.

Perceive the opportunity not the inherent and definite chance to lose money.

So as the title included the word driving. The fact is that people get maimed and killed driving. The fact is driving is dangerous. The fact is that trading is dangerous to our emotional and financial outlooks. So what should we do, stop driving …stop trading? No…think about this…

When you get in your put on a seat belt…we have airbags in our cars and we simple drive. Why should trading be any different? It shouldn’t. As we know trading is dangerous and you can lose money, in order to “try” to protect oneself, they should immediately put a stop in the market once they enter a position. If you do not do this…you are putting yourself in a position to get hurt financially. With the stop in the market, you have defined your attempted risk and you will let the probabilities play out. Any trade is 50/50 regardless of analysis. Yocan not avoid losses however with a stop placed immediately you put seat belt on. It is not a total guarantee. You can still easily lose money, but you defined your risk…..

This is the type of thinking that is needed for successful trend following. It is not easy nor are losses avoidable. The more you try to avoid losses the more mistakes you will make. Accept the risk…risk a small percentage of your account size…let the probabilities work over time.
