    Xstrata and Glencore are soon to merge into a commodities giant with a combined market value of $90 billion. What do you think? A buy opportunity for Xstrata?

    as far as I know neither trades on the ASX - so most guys here locked out.

    Usually mergers trade low while the deal is being done - both are too big for someone like me to evaluate.
    I'd get some investment advice from a professional broker if you're thinking of participating in the merger by buying shares.

    My usual approach is: Once the news is out it's already too late to hop onto the train. @[email protected]
