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.

Triple Digit Earning Growth Trend Following Stock Market Leaders $QQQ $LCI

Trend following is never easy. It is not making millions in up markets and in down markets. It takes alot of work and determination ( which most do not have). Companies that are very profitable can potentially generate some big stock moves. Watch this educational video on how I approach the stock market and my daily routine.

Educational only- No personal stock recommendations made. Trading can cause large losses.

Canslim and High Growth Stock Investing does Not Work Anymore???

Firstly Canslim is a registered trademark of Investors.com. Secondly this is not my statement rather it came up in one of my telephone sessions last weekend with an investor keen on improving his stock trading. I told this student that I will agree to disagree about Canslim. Personally I am an avid fan of Bill O’Neil and Investors.com.

Every investment type of model has various periods of success and more so…struggle. He is a new investor and very frustrated ( rightfully so) with many failed breakouts of leading stocks and choppy market action. I explained trading is not supposed to be fun…entertaining…or EASY!! It always has it’s challenging periods…I asked him…if it was so easy…why do 90% + fail in trading?

For the last 3 years, managed futures and trend following have been extremely difficult! So much for Millions in up markets and millions in down markets. It was choppy without trends and many CTAs quit.

Low and behold when the vast majority of investors have pulled out their money and CTAs quit, the last quarter of 2014 was Great for many trend followers who were short crude oil and currencies. Out of nowhere profits were generated…However..

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. THE RISK OF LOSS IN TRADING COMMODITY FUTURES, OPTIONS, AND FOREIGN EXCHANGE (“FOREX”) IS SUBSTANTIAL

As I stated…trading is hard. It takes dedication. It takes commitment. It takes perseverance. It takes having an exact trading plan and routine.

My teaching and mentoring help me as a trader. When I hear all the stories of traders who have not succeeded for a myriad of reasons it reinforces how tough trading really is…

Canslim is not dead nor was trend following. Currently in the stock market we have 5 Distribution days on the SPY. This shows institutional selling. The market is in a choppy period. This can continue for quite sometime…

That is why you need a trading plan….

Fidelity Magellan 40 Years of Compounding of Wealth

One of the reasons I mentor and teach trend following is that I meet all kinds of very interesting people from all over the world. I have taught trend following from Australia to India to London to Mexico.

My goal is to help students learn the power of trend following and more importantly how really tough it is. Trend following is not a weekend course and you start making millions in up markets or down markets. It takes work…it takes patience and it takes commitment.

Want to share a story from one of my mentoring sessions on trend following.

I had a trend following session with a very nice man from Vermont who had invested in Fidelity Magellan $FMAGX since 1974. He told me that he has tried to be a trader for 40 years and nothing really had workHed other than his passive investment in Fidelity Magellan $FMAGX.

After our conversation I looked at the history of Fidelity Magellan $FMAGX. The compounded results of Fidelity Magellan $FMAGX have been fantastic ( however the proverbial past performance is not indicative of future performance nor am I suggesting to anyone to invest in Fidelity Magellan $FMAGX).

However one must dig a little deeper. There have been several periods in which could easily quit. In 2008 they were down approx 48%. Wow…these guys are suppose to be experts and they lost half of my money??? Wow…In trading..anything can happen. This is why one needs to “try” to protect on the downside and have an exact trading plan.

This is what I teach…and help traders develop. Their own unique trading plan that matches their personality and risk profile.

Trend following is not easy nor is trading…however commitment..patience…a trading plan…can give one compounded rates of return…

Potential Stock Themes and Shares for 2015 $BABA $PANW $ILMN $AAPL

In order to succeed in the stock market, first the market needs to be in an uptrend if we are looking to go long. It is much harder to go short than ride trends when the market is healthy. Take into consideration anything can happen however this is becoming an old bull market and the biggest profits are on the onset of a new bull market. This takes more experience because at the beginning of a bull market most are in dis belief and the gloom and doom are thick…Just look at March of 2009 as an example or 2003.

The trends that should continue to grow in 2015 that I see and the stocks within each of these groups are as follows:

The below are my personal opinion and meant solely for educational purposes.

•Cyber Security
$CYBR, $PANW, $QLYS,
•Biotech
$ILMN, $BIIB
•Mobile Payments
$AAPL, $V, $MA
•Self Driving Cars & or Assisted Driving
$MBLY, $TSLA, $GOOG
•Social Media & Internet
$FB, $BABA

Should One Buy The ETF $USO – It is a Bargain..or is it?

I have had numerous conversations with traders that want to do the proverbial buy cheap and sell high. This is not trend following. Trend followers buy high and sell higher…or sell low and cover lower…

Crude oil ETF is a fine example of how to trend follow for educational purposes…

The Fed Speaks and the Stock Market Rallies- Will it Continue?

You never want to fight the FED…but it is very interesting that they seem to want the stock market to go up. You never want to fight the FED but you surely need a trading plan in order to succeed in the markets.
