A detailed study of the US stock markets, indices and vast array of ETFs. Includes the study of ETFs for targeting any segment
The U.S. stock market is the largest and most dynamic in the world. It offers the most options for investors around the world. We study how stocks are valued, and the different kinds of analysis investors use to make their investment decisions. We introduce two very important stock concepts - Beta and Volatility. Both measures are quantified, and give investors a good idea of how a stock can move with the general market. We look at the major U.S. Indices like the S&P 500, Nasdaq, Dow Jones industrial average and the Russell 2000, its components and the advantages of trading an Index. Finally, we dive into the exciting world of ETFs. Regardless of which country, sector and asset class, there is always an ETF for that.
