Equities sales & trading. I was on the cash trading desk so my tasks were to write an overnight market wrap each morning about what happened in the financial markets over the night and email this out to everyone. Then I would go through the main catalysts for the companies my desk covers and make a pre-market. I would then communicate my desk's views to other traders in the morning meeting. Beyond that I would come up with trade ideas and shadow what other desks do to gain a hollistic view of the running of the business of the entire sales & trading floor as a whole.
