I have been noticing a hedge fund trading oil derivatives and am unsure of what "They are mainly doing liquid prompt stuff and curve plays," means according to this above article.

Would be great if someone could shed some lights on the matter.

Thanks

Prompt means contracts with expiries before the front month. Usually day ahead, at least for US electricity markets.

In oil markets prompt can also just refer to the front of the curve. I.e. the first contract, the first time spread etc. It's not a super well defined term.

Mandara acts a lot like a market maker fwiw.
