Stock Market Fundamentals

via Skillshare


Hi Everyone!

My name is Zac Hartley and in this course I am going to teach you everything you need to know in order to feel confident making your first investments in the stock market. 

In lesson 21 I am going to make a trade using the methods that I have taught in the course and in lesson 34 I close that trade with a 44% profit in under 10 days of trading using just the knowledge and strategies that I outline in this course

This is the perfect course for somebody interested in getting into day trading, swing trading or dividend investing and we are going to cover all of the fundamentals to get you started.

We are going to start at the beginning and talk about how the stock market was founded, what a stock is, and the history of the stock market.

After we get through the easy stuff we are going to start looking at how to read charts, make decisions, and actually invest our money in a way that helps us achieve our time based financial goals.

We are going to finish the course by looking at fundamental investing and understanding the financials statements so that you have a full range and understanding when it comes to looking at a company stock.

I started trading 7 years ago and I began making courses in 2019.  Since then I have helped over 200 students learn how the stock market works and helped them take that first step in their plan to financial freedom.
