To succeed in this job, you need to be the best and believe in yourself. Futures First will give you cutting edge tools and a strong foundation to launch your career. We have great analysts and managers and IT systems, but it’s really up to you. I love this challenge for myself.

The most challenging part of my job is that I must constantly evolve. Futures First is not a place where I can sit back and rest on my previous successes. If I want to keep growing as a market analyst, then I need to keep myself ahead of all the other whiz-kids working in the financial markets.

On the surface, it looks like I spend 80% of my day alone, but in reality, I’m interacting with thousands of players every second when the international markets are open. Often I forget that I am sitting in an office in Gurgaon, India, because I am acutely sensitive to real time news happening in the USA and the UK. One of the great perks of my job is that I work within the biggest energy markets in the world, but then I get to do it from the convenience of my hometown.
