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.

Avoiding Devastating Trading Losses

I received this email and thought to share…

Hi Andrew,

Hope you’re doing well. Saw your post on losing trades. Maybe you could spin that answer into something more positive. For instance, using simple rules to determine when to be in/be out of markets, you can prevent devastating losing trades. You will have small losing trades, but you will be able to prevent the kind of losers that could knock you out of the game…something like that.

That’s something that Larry Hite (and others) have talked about. The point is to prevent the LARGE losses, because those are the ones that can kill you. Because if you’ve lost all your money, then you won’t be around to take advantage of the tail events.


He is so right! This is our goal, to attempt to avoid big losses. They effect us both emotionally and financially. That is why I strongly suggest trading with stops. However there is no way to avoid gaps or limit moves. I strongly suggest risking less than 1% of your account size on any trade and actually in my trading I risk even less. My risk per trade range from .4 to .75 of 1%. You need to have a trading plan in order to succeed. You need to believe in it. You need to be committed…

If you need help with your trading, I offer one on one mentoring by the hour. I offer a free 1/2 hour consultation in order that we both can see if I can assist you. Just email me to schedule a time to speak.
