The course is very good at quick introduction in trading world. Basic terms and the fundamentals building blocks to understand the trading operations.

However, i found a miss taping in key examples that consume a some time to know where the number come from. I think the proper file for download could be available.

Excellent content in this course. Did not give five stars because the discussion portion of the course is non existent so you pretty much have to figure some things out on your own if you have questions. Overall the course was great and the instructor was very insightful. Thank you ISB.

Great content and range in topics. The powerpoint presentation could use a little improvements and small corrections. I would like a little more explanation on the formulas or examples of them in use before the quizzes. Thank you!

I think the faculty could have been more explanatory in Week 3, and more factually correct and in sync with the data being read out from slides. Otherwise, this course provides a learning step for a beginner for sure.

While the course provides a relevant insight into the key aspects of investments and trading, the end of week quiz does not provide a holistic representation of the topic covered in the course
