Urgent decision needed: Glencore metals trading or Performance Reporting Analyst in National Australia Bank?

Hi brothers, I am based in Australia and I am seeking for your advice re the 2 offers I got recently.

1. Junior metals trader at Glencore. I will basically start from Logistics, Shipping, Contract Management, etc. to work my way up to a physical metals trader.
2. Performance Analyst sitting in National Australia Bank's asset servicing division. This division provides custodian services to funds. To quote the manager's description, this role sits in the front-end of the mid-office. It is quite technical in terms of financial reporting and analysis.

Two roles offered similar base salary. Any suggestions? Which one is better in terms of long-run remuneration, exit opps, etc?

Glencore = Sth African bad-asses, not afraid to play hard. Also, they make some great money around the world.

You'll see much more interesting stuff with them than NAB. Go Glencore.

Those who can, do. Those who can't, post threads about how to do it on WSO.
