An On Line course in the basics of Stock Market Investment.
This is an open-access Online course in the basics of Stock Market Investment. It is designed for people who strongly suspect - but are not sure - that the New York Stock Exchange is in New York, and for people who wished they had the time to be students. It emulates an academic course in stock market investment; this means that there is more emphasis on why and how the market functions than on why you personally should put money into it.
It is offered freely on the web and requires no previous knowledge or expertise.
Elements of this course have been designed for students in grades six through twelve and for University Freshmen.
