    i am an intern on a trading desk.

    it is common for our desk (Lon and NY combined) to make less than 5 trades a day. so i do something kind of similar to what the rest of the traders do.

    Sounds like a great experience though, but I suggest you make the most of it by exposing yourself to many different desks.

    Are there no other interns where you are?
    Not so much anymore, structured's dried up a lot and the vanilla desks (esp. rates) are killing it these days.
