How is the course structured?

2. The next four sections deal with understanding & analyzing Financial Statement of companies which is a key input for your stock trading or investing decisions.
3. The next 8 sections deal with Technical Analysis. These techniques are not just applicable to stock trading but also to other asset classes.

4. Three sections on Option Basics which will be of great help if you want to trade stocks using options.
