"Making your money work for you" is the age old concept regarding investing. Where to send this money to work is another thing. As we explore this question throughout the course, we start by looking at the financial markets. You will learn what the markets are and the functions they serve. We will also look who the main players are, as well as all of the jargon involved.
Building off of the topics covered in the previous lesson, this lesson explores the mechanics of the markets. We will cover what causes price to rise or fall. We will also explore the main strategies market participants use in regards to what is happening in the market at a given time.
Market Analysis Methodologies
Observing the facts, understanding the trading modalities, and then trading accordingly requires an understanding of price action, doji, reading candlestick charts, engulfing pattern formations and counter retail trading. Since technical analysis is basically fact-driven, there is no scope for guesswork or predictions.
Stocks, Bonds and Cash
With all the noise in the financial world, investors can quickly lose sight of what they are really investing in. The money market is one of the first places investors go to when looking to make low risk short term investments. However, it is also sometimes overlooked due to the low rate of return. In this lesson we take a look at the different cash investments and asset classes, namely equities and fixed income.
Property and Alternative Investments
Unfortunately, due to the last decade, when people think of property, terms like "negative equity" and "default" seem to be the first thing that comes to one’s mind. Even though the property market was severely impacted during the financial crisis, it has since recovered; proving that property moves much like many other asset classes thus being a viable investment.

Understanding this risk reward dynamic is indispensable; regardless of whether you are investing in cash or property. This lesson will be shedding light on both of these factors; exploring what can go right and what can go wrong with your investment.
