Sobre o curso

Course Overview: Python is now becoming the number 1 programming language for data science. Due to python’s simplicity and high readability, it is gaining its importance in the financial industry. The course combines both python coding and statistical concepts and applies into analyzing financial data, such as stock data. By the end of the course, you can achieve the following using python: - Import, pre-process, save and visualize financial data into pandas Dataframe - Manipulate the existing financial data by generating new variables using multiple columns - Recall and apply the important statistical concepts (random variable, frequency, distribution, population and sample, confidence interval, linear regression, etc. ) into financial contexts - Build a trading model using multiple linear regression model - Evaluate the performance of the trading model using different investment indicators Jupyter Notebook environment is configured in the course platform for practicing python coding without installing any client applications....

A very good introduction course to python programming and it has a perfect combination with statistics, which makes financial analysis more interesting and refresh my mind on it, thanks.

Very clear explaining of the significant aspects when structuring a financial analysis, applicable in many forms of data if you don't want to make predictions only for the stock market.

The overall experience is good. Below I will describe main pros ans cons of the course.

To the benefits of this course I will attribute, firstly, its low entry threshold for beginners. Secondly, it was quite close to practice: methods of munging the data, visualizing the data, building simple trading signals with the help of Pandas library methods as well as evaluating the strategy with Sharpe Ratio and Maximum Drawdown coefficients will be very useful in real life and I hope will safe many hours of exploring technical issues in Stack Overflow and similar resources. Thirdly, the structure of the course was very intuitive: we had an overview of main statistical concepts before we needed to apply them to real data.

As to the drawbacks of the course, first of all, the overwiew of statistical concepts was too superficial. The listeners who don't have previous statistical, economic or engineering background will certainly have a lot of questions unanswered because they won't go to the proofs of the concepts and ideas presented. Secondly, though we've built trading strategies, they can not be applied in real life because we've not touched such topics as trading fees modelling and bid-ask spread modelling. Thirdly, I don't understand how the signals we have created may be technically applied in a trading environment as we didn't bother these questions.

To sum up, it was quite good introductionary course to the signal-based trading with the help of statistics. However, I think it should be further developed to cover more practical aspects and suggest different ways for listeners to improve their expertiese in the field of trading and quantitative finance, for example, by links to other courses in this sphere.

Using short videos was a good way to keep things interesting. The course was broken up into very manageable sections so I never felt I had too much work to complete in order to progress to the next section (especially since I work long hours and do not have much free time). The videos, along with the subtitles at the bottom of the page, were clear and easy to understand. The exercises were a little disappointing in my opinion. I believe the best way to learn most programming language is to type out the code from scratch and test at every step as you go along. I understand that some sections of the code we used to the analysis were complex, so my suggestion is to only include those parts of the code in the exercises, and have the student type out the easy parts repeatedly. For example the from excel, print, head, tail and other easy code can be filled out by the students instead of already having it in place. This will really help nail down the syntax and nuances of the language. You can include a help button that shows the correct code if the students can't figure it out themselves. Overall I'd give this course a 8.5/10 since I was able to apply this knowledge easily to my work. Thank you, Coursera & Xuhu Wan!
