There are people in the US who specialize in emerging markets, and on the other hand there are
those who abroad who follow the US economy, and their research is focused around numbers, not "sentiment" that in your case is a reference to some gut feel.

If you refer to "trading firms" as the big investment firms who have branches in every big city, this is why:
They act as a broker and a market maker to local and large corporations. For example, a UK based firm could approach a UK based business and offer its services via forward contracts, exotic options and/or any other vehicle to hedge exposure. This is easier when you staff in that country who knows the local laws, deposits are done in local jurisdictions, same time zone, and have the geographical proximity to meet people.

I have visited many trading desks, and saw expertise outside the geographical reign people are located.
Never have I seen a decision to build exposure world wide based on the things you claim.

Gee-wizz, you clearly have a lot of expertise in this area.

I feel this detracts greatly from the OP's initial post. (May I respectfully suggest you think a little deeper about the items you mention? You will hopefully get an understanding that all these items create a better understanding, or sentiment - to use a different word - of the local area.)

Either way, the aim of the post was simply to suggest he looks at other contracts from the main ones everyone else looks at. There is more edge in the less efficient contracts. You should know that given your undoubted deep knowledge of the industry.
