About the Course

Course Overview: https://youtu.be/JgFV5qzAYno Python is now becoming the number 1 programming language for data science. Due to python’s simplicity and high readability, it is gaining its importance in the financial industry. The course combines both python coding and statistical concepts and applies into analyzing financial data, such as stock data. By the end of the course, you can achieve the following using python: - Import, pre-process, save and visualize financial data into pandas Dataframe - Manipulate the existing financial data by generating new variables using multiple columns - Recall and apply the important statistical concepts (random variable, frequency, distribution, population and sample, confidence interval, linear regression, etc. ) into financial contexts - Build a trading model using multiple linear regression model - Evaluate the performance of the trading model using different investment indicators Jupyter Notebook environment is configured in the course platform for practicing python coding without installing any client applications....

Very clear explaining of the significant aspects when structuring a financial analysis, applicable in many forms of data if you don't want to make predictions only for the stock market.

I thought this offered a very valuable introduction in to the use of Pandas within Python, with work through notebooks and examples in the videos.

The course gave food insigts on Statistics mainly with little less weightage on Python. Overall a decent start for financial analysis with Python

Overall the course is good but the python codes used are not explained properly. So for python beginners like me, it was difficult to understand.

Relatively easy course that has taught me a number of useful panda tricks. Notebooks are used just for demonstration and not very challenging.

Professor can do hands simultaneously with lecture then it will be more beneficial and easy to understand instead of explaining from slides

A decent beginners guide to financial analytics.

Don't expect much as this is more like a foundation course for more in depth complex once.

Very good content and excellent notebooks! Didactics (concepts, their relation with each other and applications) could somehow improve.

Very interesting, but some concepts went too fast. It is also very difficult to learn how to code, other than copy-pasting the lines.

Background required, the course often provides no additional/explaining information about technical details, need to use google)
