Junior Commodity Trader Salaries
Can anyone provide data points on salaries for junior physical commodity traders who are just starting out in trading (not a support function)? I'm particularly interested in hearing numbers for junior oil traders but info for other commodities is welcome.
Do numbers vary much between the big name traders and smaller players at that level?
If you've had prior commercial experience e.g. biz dev or worked on structured commodity trade finance deals for instance, rather than just having an ops, risk, treasury etc. background, would that make a difference to starting comp as junior trader?
I saw CoffeeTrader mention $85-120k with 75-120% bonus in another thread for junior coffee traders. Anyone else have numbers for junior guys trading physical? US or Swiss figures would be great.
