Intro to FinTech Using R

Learn to be a FinTech enthusiast and use R to code some cool finance and machine learning projects

This course provides basic introductory guidance to FinTech. We cover three sections: (i) basic statistics in money management, (ii) stock market timing, and (iii) asset pricing. This course is for financial and technology enthusiasts. We will learn a few fundamentals and I am really happy to share all of my knowledge to you for FREE! Most of my friends know me as the guy who has been both retail traders and institutional traders on Wall Street. They consider me the go-to guy when it comes to financial problems. What most people do not know is how I get myself started. This is why I put together this course that is uniquely based on my personal passion and career choices. You will be using an easy programming language R to learn some basic statistics in money management. Then I will teach you to time stock market and build trade-able factor-based algorithms from scratch. Each lecture is a live coding round in R directly and I will walk you through the code block by block to explain the functionality. This course is not designed for you to master R or to becoming a professional trader. However, this course provides some of the most basic rules of thumb and intuition that every successful trader and institutional hedge fund managers know. I hope you will enjoy the content as much as I do!
