Have you ever invested in the stock market? If so, do you use technical analysis or fundamental analysis? Do you rely on momentum strategy or buy low sell high approach? Whatever your style, in every step you take, you're acting on assumptions about how efficient the market is.
There are thousands of ads by people who made it big in trading by mere luck and, as a result, call themselves experts in beating the market. They rely on such anecdotes to sell you a 'get-rich-quick' scheme.
This course is the opposite of that. It applies sound statistical evidence for you to understand the market better, using only peer-reviewed reputable sources. In this program, there are no claims about a magic strategy to beat the market. It emphasizes financially-savvy leadership skills and strives to make you aware of your biases to be objective, reduce magical thinking, and learn from the mistakes of others.
Every video covers a topic that will help you inquire into and discover how the financial world works and bridges the gap between disciplines: financial mathematics, business ethics, psychology, economy, sociology, philosophy, and even evolutionary biology.
This cutting edge learning journey is not a vocational course, though. It attempts to demystify finance and raise financial literacy in the Arab world to make you a better citizen. Do not let your emotions get the best of you. The main goal is to boost your critical faculties and guide you to financial readiness to save responsibly for a better future.
