Exactly what does an entry-level analyst trader do at a BB...ST
I still can't make out or understand what an analyst in S&T at a BB actually does. I know the role is to support junior and senior traders, so do you get to trade at all? The structerers design the product you're trading, the sales people maintain relationships with clients. So, if you're not even the one making the execution, exactly what are you doing? Pricing products? Managing risk? Making models? Isn't that all done by either a different department or on the computer? Can some current analysts please offer a-day-in-the-life-of type insight? And sorry if others are offended by my amateurish question, but I am relatively new to the field and recently found an interest in trading. Thanks in advance.
