Is it even possible to contribute something more shallow and general to this topic? Honestly…very low effort article.
In order to become a commodity trader, you’d have to “gain a position with a commodity trading firm”, you say?
Who would have thought? And, of course, this is the easy part – goes all by itself: You just go there and grab that job at Trafigura, but first take a look at their headquarter, son. Should Glencore’s match your tastes even better, then apply with Glencore. Do not sell yourself short, kid!
And what else? “After getting you licensed, a constant practice of dealing with clients and commodity trading can help you gain experience, says Rowan Relton.” Are you for real?! How low can it get?!
But let’s see, if we can get any hint about what candidates are looked for in the industry:
“Commodity trading is a professional job within the financial industry, says Rowan Relton. Therefore effective communication, the ability to think critically, understanding the financial market, knowing the investment formulas, understanding sales techniques, vast knowledge of commodity trading process and ability to make a decision quickly are skills that are expected from a commodity trader.”
Just, wow! Incredible: I mean, knowing your way around with the market and the products you’re in, ok, that I can believe, BUT “effective communication”, “knowing investment formulas” AND “ability to make a decision quickly”?! Dude, get out of here.
