Overview

Capital markets have taken an essential and vital part in global open economies which has been underlined by the drastic macroeconomic consequences of the global financial crisis. Thoroughly understanding how capital markets work is therefore a necessity for anyone involved in any segment of the economy or simply willing to safely invest in capital markets. However, the variety and complexity of products and businesses as well as the use of a very specific jargon can make the mechanics of capital markets very confusing. That is why this MOOC has four objectives: understanding the relationship between financial markets and the macroeconomy knowing how capital markets are organized and the roles of the main key players grasping the mechanics of key financial products: stocks, bonds, options making informed investment decisions
