Energy Options / NYMEX Floor

Discussion in 'Energy Futures' started by Energy Options, Dec 1, 2008.

  1. Hello,
    I currently work on the floor of the NYMEX in energy options and am looking to expand my knowledge, contacts (and book ) within the energy markets. I'm a young guy eager to become successful in this industry. The firm I work for can excecute all options trades on the floor with the 4 energy markets:

    Crude options- LO (symbol)
    Heating Oil options-OH
    Natural Gas options-ON
    RBob Gasoline options- OB


    The company I work for is in a great position near the pits and if any quotes throughout the trading day or service is needed, I can personally help you out by adding you to our Yahoo messenger or AOL IM (where you can see the markets or size trades in live time) or exchanging phone numbers for more personal contact. Thanks

    If anyone has any questions on how things work on the floor as opposed to OTC, please leave a reply. Thanks again
    Brian
     
  2. Check PM
     
  3. Welcome to ET.

    I actually never seen the floor live. Any way you can arrange the visit. The beers will be on me. :)
     
  4. I think you mean the <b>bears</b> will be on you :p
     
  5. Funny. :D
     
  6. Was there a couple of weeks ago. CL pit was dead just like all the others, but there were plenty of people in the options. Don't know if there was much getting done though.
     
  7. That is exactly why I want to see it before it disappears.
     
  8. I think it's worth while. I was down there 2 weeks ago and the futs pits were asleep, but the options were, at the very least, alive with markets. Not too sure how much trading was going on, but it was definitely a unique place to spend an afternoon.

    To the OP, I PMed you too.
     
  9. Front desk people treat you like you're a criminal while you wait for your person to escort you in though :)

    Definitely worth seeing.
     
  10. Yea, I experienced that too. Pretty impressed with their security though. Couldn't even walk into the lobby w/out showing ID.
