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.

Taking Money out of the Equation When Trading

Too often new traders only focus on how much they made or lost on a trade. The most important issue for me is to follow my plan. I “try” not to get blinded by dollar amounts. It is much easier for me to think in terms of percentages….for example the trade worked and profited x % or the trade did not work and lost y%. Taking money out of the equation is a paramount goal that I strive with when trend following. The key is that I have patience…discipline…and accept the outcome of any trade. I know in advance my worst case albeit for gaps and limit moves which I can not control. I try to risk only a small percentage of my account size on any trade. In most cases less than 1%. I know that any trade is 50/50 and there is no guarantee of a trade working. I say to myself..How much is this trade going to cost to me to SEE IF IT WILL WORK.

Thinking in terms like this lets me avoid the emotional feelings when trades do not work. I have no expectation they have to. The most important issue for me is to take my loss…try to keep it small and be available for the next potential trade that will work. When Trading and trend following you have to believe anything can happen. If you do not believe anything can happen you can delude yourself that you do not need hard stops. Hard stops keep you in business and in the majority of the cases keep your losses small. Keeping losses small does not damage your psyche or financial situation…

Trading is not easy. Taking money out of the equation when trend following and having the courage to stay with your trading plan puts the odds in your favor.
