Physical Commodities Trainee Traders
Hello WSO ,
Does anyone have any information regarding structured trainee trader programs at physical commodities trading shops?
I know that you are often expected to spend time in ops/scheduling/risk/deals desk etc. in general at the entry-level. For a structured program though, could anyone comment on the steps it often takes to become a trader (required overall knowledge, required/common desks/rotations, tests, length of time/seniority needed, the role of timing or luck etc.) and the likelihood of becoming a trader when on that track. Any examples from specific programs would be great.
