Course Details

This applied course intends to impart the basic theoretical framework about investment in the financial markets. Along-side the students are expected to participate in a stimulating real-time portfolio investment game that faithfully and realistically mimics the market and thereby exposes the participants to the choices/trade-offs faced by professional traders and investment companies.

Thanks to the competitive pressure of the game, students learn the fundamentals of investment decision making, as well as the analysis of the information. The course follows a consistent and chronological pedagogy, including the description of history and anatomy of financial markets and a unified treatment of the three prime financial asset classes, viz. stocks, bonds, derivatives.

Topics are organized in a way that makes them easy to apply — covering both fundamental and technical analysis. Throughout the course, actual trading of securities will be explained along with the use of indicators analyzing price action, pattern recognition, and technical analysis tools.
