Breaking into commodities trading from Eastern Europe
Has anyone ever seen a russian guy in commodities trading in London, Geneva, NY, Houston, etc.?
I will be graduating in June 2013, and by the time I graduate I will have a 6 months of internship in commodities S&T desk in a major local bank behind my back. But the industry here is so small and underdeveloped I fear at some point I will feel the urge to move to one of the above-mentioned cities in order to grow professionally.
My questions are - is it possible? Would my skills be transferable? Would my knowledge of Russian be an asset or no one cares?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
