Resources to learn about crude/gas trading and...Hi, I have been working in market risk for a firm in ERCOT. There's not many so you can probably guess which one. I have been trying to learn more about the various markets since I may potentially want to move into trading, either here or at another firm. Commodities that interest me the most... 5 1 year 5 months
Good ETRM (energy trading risk management)...I recently started at a large firm that trades on ERCOT (prefer not to disclose which one but there aren't many so you can probably guess) on their market risk desk.
