Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe From Switzerland to the world - they are the giants of commodity trading, but can they shake off the tag of 'modern day slave masters'? This week on Counting the Cost we examine the commodities industry - the very essentials, the raw materials and resources that we simply cannot live without. These are traded all over the globe - everything from oil to copper, sugar to precious minerals. A country normally associated with great lakes, political neutrality and the Red Cross can now be associated with the global commodities industry as Switzerland is home to some of the biggest commodities companies in the world. But why has that one region out surpassed the others in the commodities business? And is it possible to regulate the globalised, ...

"Commodity players are a shrewd and indomitable lot. And the contracts they trade are still so loosely regulated that the correct combination of money and skill creates irresistible opportunity. That's why I'm only half joking when I call them the secret club that runs the world." When most people think of the drama of global finance, they think of stocks and bonds, venture capital, high-tech IPOs, and complex mortgagebacked securities. But commodities? Crude oil and soybeans? Copper and wheat? What could be more boring? That's exactly what the elite commodity traders want you to think. They don't seek the media spotlight. They don't want to be as famous as Warren Buffett or Bill Gross. Their astonishing wealth was created in near-total obscurity, because they dwelled either in closely h...

Get Free acount: http://goo.gl/mqaW1C There has been a lot news recently over banks using option trades to speculate on commodities, so I decided to look into some of the companies that specialize in offering option trading out there. BD Swiss is a web-based online trading platform that offers both novice and expert traders easy access to the enticing world of the financial options markets.

During the war, the Nazis stole gold, jewelry, and other valuables from the millions of Jews they murdered. The Germans needed a way to place these commodities in the international market so that they could use the money they received in exchange for their war effort. The Swiss helped facilitate the exchange in addition to holding Nazi accounts. Many speculate that some of the gold that the Swiss accepted were the dental gold and wedding rings taken from Jews at the camps. http://history1900s.about.com/library/holocaust/aa072397.htm

With over 25 years of experience in equity markets, Daniele Scilingo knows his native Swiss market inside out. Under the nanos investment brand, the former Head of European equities of Pictet is now solely focusing on 30-50 Swiss "compounders" he identified and follows closely. These compounders offer high return on capital employed, good cash flow generation and have a management able to allocate the capital they generate in a profitable way, or they pay it back to the investors. Many international investors perceive the Swiss stock market as a defensive market, and not as a hunting ground for compounders. For Daniele, Switzerland is much more than just watches and chocolate. The country is multilingual, multicultural, and strongly oriented towards foreign markets. Switzerland has been ...
JPMorgan Chase said on Wednesday that it had agreed to sell its physical commodities trading unit to the Mercuria Energy Group, a fast-growing Swiss trading firm, for $3.5 billion in cash. The deal concludes a monthslong effort to sell the unit, as Wall Street banks move to get out of the business of physical commodities trading amid tighter scrutiny from regulators. The Volcker Rule , part of the sweeping Dodd-Frank financial regulatory overhaul, restricts the ability of banks to trade for their own accounts. That extends to limits on engaging in some commodities trading. http://rss.nytimes.com/c/34625/f/640316/s/385dd16d/sc/30/l/0Ldealbook0Bnytimes0N0C20A140C0A30C190Cjpmorgan0Eto0Esell0Ecommodities0Eunit0Efor0E30E50Ebillion0C0Dpartner0Frss0Gemc0Frss/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

The Swiss National Bank shocked financial markets on Thursday by ditching its policy of capping the Swiss Franc to the Euro. The unexpected move sent the safe-haven currency souring up as much as 41% against the Euro. Stocks plunged amidst fears of what this would do to Switzerland’s very export reliant economy.

October 2 -- From London to New York to Hong Kong, the frantic question kept coming: could this be another Lehman? But nowhere did it cause more alarm than inside Glencore Plc -- the Swiss commodities giant that had suddenly found itself at the epicenter of a global panic on Monday. Shares in the Swiss commodities giant plunged 29 percent on Monday, their worst drop ever, on concerns over its $30 billion debt load. While Glencore since has regained most of the $6 billion of shareholder wealth erased in a few hours, many investors wonder if Glasenberg can hold the markets at bay.Peter Grauer, the chairman of Bloomberg LP, the parent of Bloomberg News, is a senior independent non-executive director at Glencore.
