Steel Trading?Does anyone here know much about steel trading? I'm in base metals and I've been wondering why that industry is so separate from the non-ferrous metals sector. Is it because of the lack of a deep hedging market? Steel trading seems to involve a lot more finished products thanks to sheer volumes but... 5 8 months 2 weeks

Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers ExamsMy resume currently screams 'Buyside Equity Analyst' but that's not really where I would like to be at. I've wanted to get into physical commodities for a while, but unfortunately hadn't really looked into the field before going to grad school (I may have gone to Cass or HEC Geneva in retrospect).... 2 1 year 10 months
Metals/Coal Marketing/OriginationI'm currently working part-time for a small equity research outfit that has its own tiny L/S fund but I've been looking to get into physical commodities for a while. My background is a BA in International Relations in the US and an Msc. in Finance in Europe. It's probably foolish for me to want... 15 2 years 4 days
Coking Coal TradersThis is kind of a long-shot but does anyone know who the big traders in coking coal are? I don't mean producers like BHP-Mitsubishi. Glencore, Noble, Oxbow? 7 2 years 2 months
The Philipp Brothers CollectionIf any of you are at all interested in market history or physical trading, this site has the archives for most of the materials that were used by Helmut Waszkis to write "Philipp Brothers: the Rise and Fall of a Trading Giant, 1901-1990," a book that costs over $200 used on Amazon right now.... 2 2 years 2 months
Physical Traders & Buying AssetsThe trend at really big physical traders has been moving up the supply chain into production, with the obvious example being Glencore. Are the people buying up assets at a place like Glencore or Noble former traders or are they brought in from say PE funds/miners for that express purpose? 12 2 years 3 months
Distressed Real Asset InvestorsI wasn't entirely sure where to ask this but is there much of a market for distressed natural resource investors? By that I mean opportunistic investors in farmland, timber, mining etc… PE firms, vulture funds, commodity traders? Anyone know of good examples of this or what kind of background would... 2 2 years 3 months
Global Macro in Europe vs. U.S.So I'm working for a start-up HF as an analyst, we do mostly L/S with a global macro overlay. I'm French/American and long-term I would very much like to stay and work in Europe. What difference does working in London vs. NYC make in terms of schedule for a macro PM? Does a macro PM in London... 9 2 years 4 months
Trading vs. OriginationCouple questions: 1. Does anyone here have access to this survey? http://www.imercer.com/uploads/Europe/pdfs/energy_flyer_final.pdf 2. I've noticed in that survey and elsewhere that Origination is a separate role from trading. But judging from books like Metal Men or some comments on WSO, I... 12 3 years 1 month

Whether someone told me their dad was a big shot at KKR and their mom a spinal surgeon, or that their dad sold weed and their mom gave massages, it's interesting without taking away from someone's chances to get the job.

The only way I can see the decision to go to UIC...The only way I can see the decision to go to UIC panning out is you getting a 4.0 there and then going to a top grad school. Which brings up 2 problems: 1. Getting a 4.0 and a stellar GRE isn't all that easy anywhere. 2. Top grad school probably means getting a loan once you're there,... 86 1 week 5 days
