Often it is assumed that Mid Office / Market Risk & IT's understanding need not be as detailed as a trader's understanding of financial markets. We beg to differ. As a mid office person you would be monitoring traders and ensuring that they stay within prescribed risk boundries. You will also be looking at systems , curve configuration, MTM, daily P&L & plethora of risk reports.
Market Risk too need to understand pricing, valuation, risk measurement and portfolio management of various instruments. Setting up of market risk limits and use of tools like VaR need one to have excellent grounding in pricing, valauation and portfolio management.
