As a Macro Analyst on SIG’s Research team, you will partner with our senior analysts and traders to identify investment opportunities in the index, ETF and options markets. Research analysts provide in-depth country and sector-level analysis around future catalyst events and provide real-time opinions on breaking news throughout the trading day.
