I know there have been similar topics on this recently, but I haven't seen a specific answer to my questions. I am curious if anyone has any experience in working in capital markets/commodity trading at one of the big investment banks. I am trying for internships this summer, and at some banks I have to choose between the capital markets group and the investment banking group. Thanks to some very helpful members here and my own reading/research I have a pretty good idea of what ibanking is like, but I have no idea what working in capital markets/commodities trading would be like. Does anyone have any idea as to the typical payscale (right out of college through MD), progression, hours, quality of life, etc.? For instance, for ibanking I know you can make 60-80k and a 50-100% bonus out of college, and it is usually 2 years, business school, then associate for 3 years, VP, then MD after 3-5 years if you are good. I know the similar system for consulting now, and am looking to pick up this same kind of knowledge for capital markets/commodities trading. Thanks a lot for any help you guys can give me!
