Overview

Thanks to this gripping new book we know more about how they do it. And it's even more shocking than you think. "The Independent"

When most people think of the drama of global finance, they think of stocks and bonds, venture capital, high-tech IPOs, and complex mortgage-backed 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, either in closely held private companies or deep within large banks and corporations, where commodity profits and losses weren't broken out.

Now Kate Kelly, the bestselling author of "Street Fighters," takes us inside this secretive inner circle that controls so many things we all depend on. She gets closer than any previous reporter to understanding these whip-smart, aggressive, and often egomaniacal men who bet millions every day on a blend of facts, analysis, and pure gut instinct."
