Seeing if there are any other physical traders who can give me some insight on comp at other trading shops. If you don't want to post on here then maybe send a PM.
A little background for me was an analyst for about 6 months, then moved into a physical trading role (got lucky quick). I started out originating about 1.5 MMT of grain in North America direct from elevators, and also handled freight trading and river logistics to vessel loading ports. Now I also manage merchandisers buying direct from farmers along with this. I handle pricing for all sales to destination markets and making domestic sales. Also I manage the risk for our desk, manage the futures/hedging and the hedging for all other grain desks. I have been in my role for about 5 years now(Also not located in the south/midwest so COL is not cheap). My base is around 80, also do prop trading and made about 500k and get 10% from the prob book. Physical PNL was around 15M but get no bonus off physical.
