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.

Why Do So Many Traders Have Fear When They Trend Follow

My teaching other traders & trend followers actually helps me. So many traders have fear. This fear blinds them from seeing opportunities. This fear prevents them from taking trades they were prepared to take. I have started to realize why do traders have fear….They do not want to be wrong in many cases. Their ego stands in the way from them succeeding. This is extremely unfortunate because in trading at least half of the time your trades will not work and you are WRONG( if decide to take it that way). I prefer to say the trade just didn’t work as long as I followed my trading plan.

The reality of trading is so hard for most to grasp. You can do everything right and lose money. You were wrong and you lost money. There are those traders who break their rules, make money and are “right”.

Another reason of fear is that the trader does not want to lose money. Well the reality is that in order to succeed over time you will have to accept the fact you were wrong…and you had loses. You can not have profits without loses. It is simply the cost of doing business. The key is to “try” to keep these losses small and accept them. Accepting them means risking small percentages of your account size on any trade. There are many trades I risk only.5% of my account. Keeping percentages low eases the pain or fear of losing. You must look at the next 1,000 trades and think of percentages. If you think in terms of dollars or Euros…it can be very disheartening.

The ultimate goal is to trade consistently your own trading plan that matches your personality. Do not jump system to system or manager to manager.

Trading is tough. Most traders fail… Thinking in the terms above I hope help you as a trader…
