Power Trader interview?
Hi, everyone! I was wondering about receiving some advice for an FTR trader interview (mostly focusing on northeastern markets). Previously I have interned as an analyst assisting traders with DA/RT markets, supporting mostly long-term auctions.
I mostly know how to do power flow analysis to find opportunities for traders, especially based on transmission project upgrades. I have seen traders do other sorts of analysis such as LMP analysis. I have also seen them leverage dfax and other information from transmission upgrades as well as using shadow price and rating data. However, I did not perform those analyses.
Besides my skills as a power flow analyst, I also worked as a software developer so I have a good set of skills in Python, SQL, and(not too worried about these).
