Financial Crisis & Introduction to Technical Analysis


This e-training programme comprises 3 topics/tutorials. Answer all quiz questions at the end of each tutorial in order to complete the training.

A) The Financial Crisis
(Estimated Completion Time: 75 Minutes)

The degree to which the many components of the financial system are intermingled was made abundantly clear by the sequence of events that led to the global financial crisis. Before 2007, few people had heard much about the US subprime mortgage sector, and terms like ‘credit crunch’ and ‘toxic debt’ had yet to enter into everyday usage. However, problems in the subprime area and rapid declines in the values of some of the associated assets, led to unprecedented difficulties across the global financial system.

This tutorial describes the unfolding of this watershed event, from the development of the crisis in the US subprime mortgage market to its spread across global markets and institutions. It also looks at how the authorities responded, and the lessons to be learned for future generations.

B) Technical Analysis – An Introduction
(Estimated Completion Time: 50 Minutes)

The use of various technical analysis techniques to predict market movements and forecast the direction of prices has been commonplace for centuries. This tutorial provides an introduction to technical analysis, focusing in particular on chart construction and trend analysis.

C) Technical Analysis – Fibonacci Analysis & Elliot Wave Theory
(Estimated Completion Time: 40 Minutes)

This tutorial describes Fibonacci analysis and Elliot wave theory, two historically important elements of a chartist’s toolkit. It covers topics such as the key Fibonacci retracement levels and market behavior around these retracement levels, as well as the basic premise of Elliot wave theory that prices move in a 5-wave advance before a 3-wave retracement.
