Long story short; i got lucky, and got picked because I had a few technical expertise in software (the usual vba etc) and prior background in shipping knowledge. I have interest in commodities trading (oil/paper/gas). I’m looking to kickstart my career as an analyst to a trader.

The JD of the LNG trading intern is as such and i'm having trouble trying to understand it's requirements since it may not be similar to oil trading;

- • To gain understanding in trades booking and price indices used by the trading desk

-> i understand the trade booking part, but not very familiar with price indices (does this mean JKM vs HH, TTF?)

• To provide support in the analysis of market demand and supply, cargo flows and price movements

-> does this mean physical cargo inflow/outflow analysis out of countries?

• To assist in the creation of optimization/economic spreadsheet

-> does this mean solver optimisation, what are we optimising against?

also how do you hedge LNG since oil follows a worldwide index such as Brent but there's no worldwide index for LNG, and regional arbtirages such as JKM vs HH, TTF?

Company background: - physical shipment of LNG - I suppose physical trading - supports LNG bunkering in my country - a middle & downstream supplier

I have a relatively low amount of capital of around $10k. I'm planning on trading position sizes anywhere from a few hundred to a couple thousand dollars and don't want to get eaten up by commissions. No day-trading, rather I'm doing an intermediate term of days to weeks.

I've got my eye on a commission-free broker but they only do longs, no shorts (except for options). I would like to have access to trading both directions and am not sure what to do. Should I go with a broker that charges commissions so I have access to short selling?

What do you think? Should I just plan on fees as part of my cost of doing business or forget about short selling for now?

Sorry if this has been asked on here before, but is there a way to lock trend lines to always appear on the the timeframes I drew them on? My 1hr trend lines appear on my 2hr and 30 min etc...

Is there a way to stop this from happening?

Thanks

I have $1000 to invest. The stock is ABC trading at $100 per share. $20 is the margin giving exposure to 1 share.

I am willing to hold on to the share and exit when it is trading at $50 at worst and therefore willing to lose $50 difference.

Ignoring all other costs,how many units should I buy with the $1000 such that a portion uninvested will provide a cushion until exiting at the worst price of $50?

Hello all

I am a computer science student who has just begun coursework. I decided that it would be fun to create a trading algorithm/ bot as it has practical uses (and I can use backtesting to tick all the evaluation boxes on the mark scheme) . I’m an experienced coder (mainly in python) but can branch out to other languages if I need to, however I am not too familiar with the stock market. I was thinking I could make an arbitrage bot however I don’t think this would be the greatest. I have access to real time data using the alpha vantage api. Anyone have any ideas for cool but useful things I could do with it?

Hi all, I'm using the MT4 app to test some strategies with a demo account. I found out however that the price of the currency pairs is not the actual price at that moment.

My question: does MT4 prices on a demo account lag? And if so, how much?

I am from Europe and in need of something similar to ThinkOrSwim's "OnDemand" feature for market replay with historically accurate data for stocks. I tried downloading NinjaTrader for this sole purpose, but from what i understand it's only for futures and forex.

Anyone know of a solution to this? I am getting bored of having to wait for market hours to paper trade.

I’ve seen a lot of people that program in their strategy but I have no clue about coding, is the best way to just go back and do it the old fashion way or is their something I’m missing?
