About this Course

This course introduces the learner to concepts of investing in the equity market. The aim is to explain the working of the stock market, while simultaneously highlighting the indicators to watch out for while taking a call on the market. The course also discusses the various ways in which equity stocks can be analysed in order to form an opinion on their prospective performance.

The main teaching elements are: (1) Explanatory text chunked into simple sentences or bullet points; (2) Images to support the text and show actual market trends; (3) Illustrations from the equity market that connect concepts with market realities. Each element plays an important role and reinforces the others, but since this is an introductory course the textual content is the most important component. Other elements add interest and context to the ideas discussed in the text. By building an understanding of the basic concepts of equity investing, a learner will be better equipped to analyse stocks and shares for investments.

The learner will also become familiar with the characteristics of an IPO and other offers by the companies to the public. This will enable an overall better understanding of how to assess and evaluate stocks for investing.
