I am getting ready to pref desks for Sales and Trading at a BB bank. The program rotates around sales and trading, however, I was told that most of the trading desks require a computer science/quant background, or at a minimum, to have strong programming skills.
I come from an Econ/Finance background. I am good at math, but I am wondering if there are any areas of trading that do not require programming skills and would be more suitable for my skill set. My interests lie in the macro space, as well as credit.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
