Amaranth is out of the energy trading business all together (at least for now), according to CNBC's David Faber. Its entire energy portfolio has been off-loaded to Citadel and JP Morgan Chase, Faber reported moments ago. Those assets are even now most likely working their way into the broader markets.
No word on whether Brian Hunter, who headed the fund's energy trading operations and is said to be responsible for the enormous losses it recently suffered, still has a job.
