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....

A very good introduction course to python programming and it has a perfect combination with statistics, which makes financial analysis more interesting and refresh my mind on it, thanks.

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.

first and 4th week was fun and relevent. but the 2nd and 3rd weeks were quite difficult to understand and also lack clarity of what we are learning is how that is going to relate in the trading programming.

Could have done with some more opportunities to write pieces of code in different scenarios; many of the notebooks consisted of just running the prewritten code snippets in order and observing the effects.

Overall good course but needs to clean/improve some of the code/quizes to be consistent. Does not explain Statistics or financial models well but shows basic idea of how to find/use them in Python.

Videos are not really connected to the practice. Some finance and statistic stuff is simply mentioned and directly used without enough explanation. I finished the course with help from Google.

This course is good for someone familiar with the concepts of statistics and linear regression. However, for a complete beginner, it's a little difficult to understand everything taught here.

This is a course more for statistics than python. All we understand is how to use the Python libraries and their functions to compute statistical data.

90% Statistics

10% Python.

Acho que falta exercicios para praticar e colocar em pratica tudo que foi visto.

O curso é muito rápido e muito denso em conteúdo porém acho que esse ponto deve ser melhorado

It's kind of hard to understand to understand the lecturer/professor, but the course material is interesting. I was hoping for a little more programming in Python though!

The video tutorial could have been better, however the notebooks and quiz were perfectly prepared and were instrumental in verifying our understanding of concepts.

this course is really good course to understand python programming

but

1.you need basic and intermediate knowledge of statistics

2. basic knowledge of finance

I think the most valuable part of the course is in week 4 but It was rushed by fast

explanations and I was hoping a better pace in these important topics.

The course was a bit fast-paced and explanations could be more lucid and elaborate. Please increase the number of modules and provide more practice sets.

It's not bad, but it's not great either. I guess it works as a good starting point for further research, but the content is pretty general.

Overall a great experience but was not having a finance background so using these stock market terms for the first time was a challenge.

The course is somehow overlapped with the course ISOM2500.Moreover,i do not think that I have really learned a lot regarding Python.

A per-requsite of statistics is required. One should review the basics of statistics before taking the course. Pace is too fast.

It's a bit difficult for students who have no either coding or statistic background to understand the content of the course.

Overall pretty good, somethings are pretty much just glossed over and you have to figure out yourself or just plain skip.

Do not recommend. Try other courses that specify on the individual topics rather than skimming over all 3 !

Good course! It will be better to put more challenging questions as a practice in the jupyter notebook.

The basics were not explained properly.

A lot of code was unexplained.

Forum doubts were not answered .

Lots of info to learn. Does not challenge you to actually write the code, which is a big drawback.

More time should be devoted on python syntax used and more models and examples should be included

It did deliver the content it was supposed to, but it could be done in a more slow-paced manner.

Interesting but it is too fast on more difficult topics (specially the last week).
