I have been working in the commodities sector, mainly energy over the past for years. I have put in time at Morgan Stanley, Bank of America and Schroders. For the most part I have had operational jobs, ranging from P&L analyst to settlements clerk. I have a great understanding of the trading environment and have a strong desire to start trading. However, working for large investment banks there are too many political hoops to jump through to obtain a position on the desk. It has grown quite old and I'm looking for a respectable prop firm and enter a trainee program. I wold appreciate any info people could pass along on possible firms and/or contacts to work with and what to look out for. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!
