I am currently a physical energy trader at a major firm. I studied business and economics and did various internships through college one was with my current firm in a fundamentals research role, upon graduation in the height of the crisis they had an opening for aanalyst role and shortly after graduation I was hired. I have been with the firm for over 3 years now and currently help manage our assets and customer book.
My firm trades both physically and financially but our strength/specialization is the physical market and being able to best manage to get the physical molecule there and taking fundamental views based on our expertise. When I was an intern, energy commodities were booming and in record highs while now we have been in a sustained bear markets with lower volatility also dodd-frank is making the physicala lot more difficult these days.
Feel free to ask me anything about trading, energy, internships.
