How is the course structured?
1. The first three sections in the course deal with the common queries most beginners have with respect to the stock market.
2. The next three sections deal with understanding & analyzing Financial Statement of companies.
3. The rest of the sections deal with Technical Analysis. These techniques are not just applicable to stocks but also other asset classes.

Why should I take this course?

Do you have questions like:

Now you need not be intimidated with terms like Balance Sheet, Cash Flow Statement, Statement of Income. Everything is explained using a real financial statement so that you can start reading financial statements just like you read any other book!

To add to it you learn how to perform Financial Ratio Analysis & Common Size Analysis of companies which would help you better understand the underlying business of a stock & its performance. This is a must have input before you invest in a stock!

Once you know which company you want to invest in, you need to know when to invest so that you can benefit most from rise in price of a stock.

This is where the rest of the sections in this course help you.

These tools are not just applicable to the stock market. In fact you can trade almost any asset class using these tools. Don't believe us? 

We throw in our favorite trading pattern at your service to prove it to you. This pattern is a complete trading system in itself. We used this same pattern to predict the surprising rally in Gold in 2016 & also the even more surprising rally in the stock market!

If you are new to investing this course will provide a major boost to your knowledge & give you the confidence to really kick start your investment journey.
