I am a junior studying Finance (major) and Mathematics (minor) at a non to semi target. For my internship next year, I wanted to know which Fixed Income Desk in Sales and Trading are currently more lucrative. I would also appreciate any resource to learn more about the products and market.

I look forward to the responses.
