I'm going to start a new job in equity DA and I am interested in any sources (websites, books) that could give me any relevant insight regarding the day to day activity of equity derivatives traders.

Thank you in advance for your help.

No books will help you. Just be quick on your feet and use common sense.

they really don't expect you to know shit, so as the previous post says, be quick on your feet and be ready to be someone's bitch for a while.
