There’s a ton on line for trading interviews. Expect heavy quant/market related questions. Do you know what desk it’s for? Or is it just a general “sales and trading” position. Find out what the exact role is and maybe we can help better

Agree with C2. Was at a bank and while their energy trading is still steady, every other trade area had been reduced. Moreover, to minimize the same risk encountered in 2008, the bank has a middleman between the traders and customers.
