About Me

  • About SMCJB
    Biography
    Career energy trader, first for major energy trading companies, and now as an individual prop trader. Over the years I have traded WTI, Brent, US Natural Gas, US Natural Gas Liquids (Propane etc) & US Power, both on exchange and Over-The-Counter. I currently primarily trade WTI & NG on NYMEX & ICE. My trading style is a mix of Quantitative (Relative Value & Mean Reversion) and Arbitrage / Stat-Arb. I trade mostly spreads. I do not trade using technicals, and I very rarely trade in the prompt month(s).

  • - Number of thanks you've received for useful posts
  • - How long you've been a member
  • - How active you are (how often you log in, how often you view attachments, etc)
