Question Wet Trading - Prospects

Hi all, I had my doubts about an actual community here helping (lots of slagging and outright lies going on) but here I am, out on a limb to try and request some friendly advice from the seniors here.

I'm thinking of going into Wet Trading as a Junior Trader, meaning bulk (Gasoil/Naphtha/Fuel oil/CBFS) and/or speciality commodities (Methanol/BTX's/Aromatics/Acid).

I have 5 years background as a shipbroker in small tanker markets for Vegoils/Softoils/CPP & Chemicals. I am now working in a shipowning company for the last 3 years, and am now aiming higher.

As a shipbroker, my last year including bonuses was SGD 130k, all in.
As a shipowner, my financial year ending 2011 my package was Euro 142k.

I know getting into trading is kind of a "Old Boy's Club" you won't get in without connections. I have connections but it's not convenient for me to ask around for annual packages without it getting back to my company that i'm sniffing around.

Would anyone be able to advise, roughly what kind of annual package for an unproven Junior Traders are out there?
I've heard ranges between SGD6k/month + 13th month + 2-6 month bonus, until SGD12k/month + 0-9 month bonus.

For a frame of reference, I'm thinking of joining one of the big 4 trading houses, G/K/V/T am not keen in joining those Oil Majors, i know I will not gel with the culture of an oil major.

I was doing vegoil shipbroking when i first started out too.
1st year was $40k/annum no bonus.
2nd year was $80k including bonus, but started doing Products as well.
3rd year was $110k including bonus.
4th year was $170k including bonus (good bonus)
5th year was $130k including bonus (bad bonus but basic salary was higher).

Yes you are earning quite low.
My guess is you are working at a local Asian sweatshop like Ea___ , Mc___ or Ra___ .
