Commodities roles in New York
Commodities traders in New York earn an average of $89,000, not including bonuses and other variable compensation which can be quite significant for people in trading roles. New York is home to the NYMEX and other prominent futures exchanges, so there is an aggressive trading culture in the commodities market, as well as compliance and operations jobs. Employers of people in commodities trading jobs need candidates who are able to work under pressure and who take a sensible attitude to risk management. A strong track record in the commodities business, preferably gained at a bank or trading company with a good reputation, is usually necessary for the top roles.
The New York commodities trading industry is most competitive in precious metals and oil, where there are benchmark contracts traded, and so these are the sectors where employers in New York typically show the most interest. Soft and agricultural commodities tend to be traded out of Chicago, so the New York roles in these sectors tend to be more limited. Employees who combine practical commodity market knowledge with technology and quantitative skills are particularly highly valued.
