Overview

Economics for Capital Market Course Overview

In this Economics for Capital Markets course, we will go over important economic principles that impact financial markets, rather than worry about Micro/Macro theory. We will introduce economic events and cover how to differentiate between economic releases and economic indicators. 



Next, we will do a quick refresher on Central Banks and monetary policy, before we dive into specific examples such as The Federal Reserve (The Fed), European Central Bank (ECB), Bank of England, and Bank of Japan, and discuss these institutions and their policies in detail. After having learned about Central Banks, we will go back to economic indicators and give examples of some of the more important ones to be familiar with, such as: Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Consumer Price Index (CPI), Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), and Building Permits. Finally, we will end the course by discussing the impact on markets and how the markets should react to economic news vs. how they react in real life.

Stuart Jason Knell
In this "Economics for Capital Markets" course, you learn a lot (an awful lot) about Central Banks, etc. And, you'll learn fascinating words such as "fastidiously", a word that I have never encountered even in the entire CFA L1 curriculum. Strongly recommend inserting toothpicks on outside of eyelids to keep them open and placing pillows around you on the floor just in case you pass out from utter boredom. This course is about as exciting as my first marriage... or watching a freshly painted fence dry. Good thing it eventually ends and you can move on to the next course which is much more fun. Enjoy! :)
