I'm considering pursuing a career at a physical commodityshop and am currently based in New York. Long term I'd prefer to relocate internationally to get a global perspective of the markets, but think I need to get experience domestically first before a firm would sponsor me to go abroad.
While I would considerany commodity that I can get an opportunity to trade, my preference would be softs, specifically cofffee, cocoa, or sugar (in that order). I'm also very interested in oil and oil derivatives, but I know those positions are few and far between so would like to hedge by looking for other opportunities.
Where can I get a list of commodityshops in or around New York? (I'm willing to move around the country but would prefer not to end up in Kansas). I already know the major players like Cargil, Louis Dreyfus, etc. and am looking for a more comprehensive list.
Thanks for your help.
