The course gave a good overview of Financial Markets, It was interesting to know about the markets, their working & how to begin an investment journey. This is something that must be known as well as taught to all but isn't. This course provides a good opportunity for the same. However, the videos were monotonous sometimes. They could be shortened to hold attention. More graphs, charts, practical examples should be provided. More quizzes could also be added in between and after the videos. The equity markets section could have been detailed & focused on types of trading such as futures, intraday, etc. Assignments could also focus on questions that get us acquainted with some major financial platforms or resources. Thank You!

A good starting point for an amateur in the Financial World. The overall course structure and lesson plans were good. It gets a person abreast with most of the things present in the world of Finance in a short span of time. With that said, the professor tried his best which is something commendable but the overall delivery could have been better and more natural. Also, at various junctions of questions during the videos, mistakes can be found. All in all, glad for doing this course and looking forward to doing many more through coursera

I liked how the course was organized into the three main financial markets and then indicators to understand the markets but, I felt that the course missed a lot of the why's and sometimes discussed concepts without clarifying the basics. It would also be helpful if there were images, especially when discussing charts. Overall it's a good course to introduce terms and concepts but a lot of independent studies needed. Investopedia was a great resource to complement the material. Thanks!

the course is definitely useful and introduces us to all the terms that are used in financial markets. It however fails to create an atmosphere that would make a reader feel confident of being able to start investing. Like, different factors of the economy and different indicators are explained individually. However, their combined effect by presenting case studies is not shown anywhere.

It is a course that teases you with numerous concepts but never dwells deeper into any of those concepts. I would have loved the course even more had there been some diagrammatic representation of concepts rather than just on oral lecture. That said, I think this is a course that can stir up your interest into the whole investing sphere and make you want to learn more.
