Factors impacting commodity prices are becoming increasingly complex.
Our Global Analyst team continuously monitors market news and
fundamentals that help us identify trading opportunities and hedging
recommendations. This year, in particular, has seen remarkable
volatilities in the global coal market, which in turn had major impacts
on prices of continental power and other fuels. In the meantime, China
carried out its supply-side reform, and domestic coal mining became one
of the key targets influencing the global supply-demand balance. To get a
better understanding of the Chinese coal market dynamics, we are
looking for an intern dedicated to this topic. The main focus of this
role will be to establish a supply-demand balance for the Chinese coal
market. The role will require monitoring of news and policies related to
the domestic coal industry, the progress of the supply-side reform in
particular, with further investigation into locational coal prices,
relevant transportation costs and other factors. This role will provide
enhanced analysis to our existing knowledge base on global coal markets,
which will ultimately support our trading activities. The findings are
directly communicated to the traders and asset managers on a regular
basis in order to optimise the results, to operate collaboratively and
continuously and to identify improvement opportunities in relation to
the data and the information produced.
Key responsibilities in this role are:
data from existing databases to set up a supply-demand balance for the
Chinese coal market (primarily thermal, also coking coal, etc.)
- finding/establishing indicators to monitor domestic supply and demand situations
models in Excel to monitor various locational spreads (mine to ports,
northern ports to southern consumption area, imported coal to domestic
- monitoring news flows and analysing any regulatory changes (subsidy, tax schemes, etc.)
- understanding the relationship between domestic physical prices and future prices
- visualising the analysis and presenting it to the team and traders
Please note that the internship is a temporary position for 3 months.
- university degree in economics, finance, energy, mathematics, physics or an equivalent subject
- some initial relevant exposure to working in an energy-trading environment is a plus
- good knowledge of commodities in the energy sector (coal, oil, gas, etc.) preferred
- ability to transfer knowledge between Analysis and Trading with an interdisciplinary approach
- very strong quantitative and analytical skills
- excellent communication skills
- excellent IT skills in MS Windows (particularly in Excel and Access)
