I am a Trader at an Investment Bank, ask me (mostly) anything:
It's a bit slow today due to the US being on holidays, so i thought this might be a decent opportunity to answer some questions. I got a lot of value out of a similar thread i saw about half a decade ago. I have been a trader at a large investment bank for about 4 years. I trade commodities, but also have a lot of exposure to FX and rates. Started off in a different industry/role but managed to enter the industry 2 years after I graduated university. Originally based in a different city (think Singapore/Hong Kong) but moved to work in the London office a few years ago. I may be slightly vague in some aspects as once you start nailing down to specific products/assets its can be a very small industry. Happy to submit proof to a moderator (although im not sure how to prove my job?), however i think my answers should make it clear i know what i'm talking about.
