About the Course

This course will provide back test results for all the strategies in developed and emerging markets. The learner will also be taught scientific ways of back testing without succumbing to either look ahead (or) survival bias. You will learn various methods of building a robust back testing system for the strategies discussed in the previous course. You will be taught how to differentiate between mere data mining and results based on solid empirical or theoretical foundation. Next, you will learn the ways and means of back testing the results and subjecting the back test results to stress tests. After which, you will learn the various ways in which transaction costs and other frictions could be incorporated in the back testing algorithm. Finally, you will learn techniques for measuring a strategies' performance and the concept of risk adjusted return. You will use some of the famous measures for risk adjusted returns such as Sharpe ratio, Treynor's Ratio and Jenson's Alpha. You will see how to pick an appropriate benchmark for a proposed fund....

I liked the casual style of Prof Prasanna. In this casual style, he taught so many useful concepts. Also, I liked Prof Sai Harsha. He is a thorough professional.

The 4th week of the G-score was harder to follow than the rest of the course. I think every component G1-G8 could have had a dedicated mini test before moving on to the next one to make sure the exact formula is understood by the student.

But overall, an interesting course. I have no background in trading, accounting or finance and was able to follow it very well. Thanks!

excellent course. both the professors are very knowledgeable and are very good at their job. the focus is on doing your own research and finding out answers. just one suggestion. the mentors should regularly check the discussion forums as I posted a few questions over there which haven't been answered yet.

several things are superficial and course do not allow to understand or construct clear picture - you need read more and more. probably that was the goal actually
