(for beginners)

That educational course “The ABC of Stock market and on line trading” was created by me with support by the "Ukrainian Stock Exchange” and during enough long time I teach this course in our Academy in form of “additional education” in the center of postdiploma education, retraining and promotion of staff qualification.
The course is designed for 24 academic hours and it based on theory studying and practical using.
The integrated structure of the course and some information about this course is given in our site(see below) and NMETAU site.

Studying is held in the special equipped classroom in conventional for students time.

On my mind one of the main features of this course is the nessesary understanding of the multi complex of knowledges from various areas of economics, mathematics, programming, algorithmization, psychology and others.

The course aims to provide the students with the basic knowledge of the stock markets and trading as the core activity in the global financial and stock markets.
