Students are Saying...
I learned so much from this course. As an economics student, the way James and Lex broke down Research and Trade Like The Pros helped to expand my knowledge and better understand how the market plays out. I am definitely incorporating their strategies into my own investments. I also loved the written out definitions.
I’ll teach you why identifying the best ETFs, knowing when to buy them and when to sell them, puts you way ahead of the game.
As a finance student, I owned some preliminary knowledge regarding markets and investing. However, I wanted to learn various investment methods and techniques that school could never teach me. Investopedia Academy’s Research and Trade Like The Pros course taught me how to analyze companies and currencies on a professional level. I definitely have a better understanding of how elite hedge fund managers invest.
