In this course hosted by PRUDENCE Engineering and Financial Consultants, Col (Dr) Shabbar Shahid explains the gambit of Stock Market Investment and Trading in a very simple and lucid manner. The instructor is a post graduate engineer, an MBA in Finance, a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers(India) and a doctorate in Management. Thus, qualified to be an instructor on the subject.
The instructor has several courses on Udemy to his credit which are focused on different aspects of Stock Market like Futures and Options, Candle Stick Patterns, Trading Strategies and Financial Statements which have been appreciated by students. A common feedback or suggestion received from students is that the instructor may provide a comprehensive course which can broadly explain the various aspects of the Stock Market so that the students are equipped with a holistic knowledge of the Stock Market before they take up the focused courses on particular topics. This course is therefore, a tribute to all those students who have provided constructive feedback on the other courses and encouraged, or rather compelled the instructor to come up with this course.
The instructor believes that when people Invest and Trade without adequate knowledge they end up making losses. They shy away from learning because they think that the subject is too confusing and risky. This course is designed to dispel the fear by structuring it in four sections as follows:-
Section 1 titled Know the Stock Market as a Playfield, explains various aspects of the stock market like what is the concept of a share, what is shareholding and capital structure, what are IPOs and FPOs and what is the concept of their pricing, the concept of Profit, Dividend and Growth, what is Primary and Secondary market and how a trade happens, what is a Depository, Depository Participant and Clearing house, the logic of share price fluctuations and how one can start investing in a stock market.
Section 2 titled Know the Market Players and how they play, makes the student familiar with the various market players like Arbitrators, Hedgers or Hedge Funds, Institutional Investors, FIIs, DIIs, HNIs, Business news channels, Analysts, Panelists and Speculators apart from Investors and Traders. The students get a clear idea of what the intentions and agenda of these players are and how they influence the stock price.
Section 3 titled Know the Parameters and Rules of the Game, is all about broad understanding of Investment and Trading nuances like Fundamental Analysis, Financial Statements, Ratios and other stock parameters, Candlestick patterns, Technical Indicators and Technical analysis, meaning of Derivatives etc.
Completion of this course will give the students a clear and comprehensive knowledge of the stock market based on which they can begin their investment and trading journey and ultimately with due practice and experience, they can become professional Investors and Traders.
