Hey guys, this is my first time here. I'm applying for a Fixed Income Trading Assistant job. I've read and understood the job description, but I'm still not too familiar with what a trader does. I'm very interested in the stock market and I have invested my own money but taking a buy and hold approach. Anyways, traders make money buying low and selling high. But what is particular to fixed income trading over options or stocks or coffee. Anyone there who has experience in the fixed income trading floor can explain me what they did and what it's assistant did? Also, I saw on trader magazine that traders can make huge sums of cash which is probably why you all do it. Can you tell me anything about the figures and possibilities? Thanks for your help Nick.
