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 Can’t You Stick with Your Trading Plan?

It might be a funny question…but in reality most traders firstly do not even have a trading plan.

What to buy or sell
How much to buy or sell
When to exit with a loss or profit

So if you have a trading plan…first pat yourself on the back…Now the question comes…when aren’t you capable of following it?

The proverbial FEAR or Greed is the answer…In most cases you have not accepted the fact that any trade is 50/50 and does not have to work. You need to learn to accept your losses..You can not succeed in trading or trend following if you experience negative emotions when you have a trade that does not work…

Problem…accepting losses…

Answer…I say to myself…glad to take this loss as my winners are ahead of me. More importantly …if I am not consistent than I will not succeed. Small loses turn into big losses. Take the negative and make it a positive. Do not beat yourself up with losses…try to keep them small…There are limitless opportunities when we trend follow.

Besides accepting losses…accept the risk. Know ahead of time what you are willing to risk and then the odds of your trading system play out. Think of a casino, they do not win every hand. They do not jump system to system and look for high win rates. Once you realize this…there is nothing to fear. Losses are the cost of doing business in order to make yourself available for winning trades…

Put on trades with confidence…you do not have to know the future…No one does…

Basically stick to your trading plan…try to keep losses small…know where they do not work…exit them quickly…and have the patience to ride the trades that do work…
