Introduction to Financial Modeling

Learn to build a simple integrated financial statement model.

Created by Peter Lynch - VP in Private Equity

"]

Students: 114840, Price: Free

This course will teach you how to use two years of historical income statement data and two years of historical balance sheet data to build a fully integrated financial statement model. It is designed for those new to financial models.

Section 1 will introduce the accounting equation and the three primary financial statements in the context of building a financial model. The content starts with the accounting equation, which is the single most important concept in accounting. The remaining three videos introduce the financial statements one at a time with a focus on the relationships that are important as you build financial models.

All of the material is provided via video-driven instruction with notes in pdf format to help follow along.

Section 2 will walk through integrating the three primary financial statements and creating a five-year projection. The first video provides a quick overview of the process. It is an easier process to grasp if thought of as a series of steps. It will also make it easier to measure progress as you work through the longer video. The video in Lecture 2 will walk you through the process of building the model cell by cell.

Because you are walking through the entire process of building a model, the video in Lecture 2 runs long: 35 minutes total. My advice would be to download the excel template attached to this lecture and build the model as the video progresses. Building the model yourself is the best way to fully understand the process.

In my opinion, if you want to build a strong financial modeling skill set, a thorough understanding of how an integrated financial statement model works is one of the most important things you can learn.

The last video in this section will explain circular references and how to fix broken models. It can be incredibly frustrating to finish a model and realize that it does not "balance." This video will help avoid that frustration.

I hope the content is useful to you! Please feel free to email me (peter@ASimpleModel.com) with any feedback.

Note: The longer video has some white noise in the background that I am having edited out. I hope to have a cleaner audio file up soon. Thanks for your patience!

Financial Accounting in Excel – New Business

Students: 33184, Price: Free

If we are a business owner or accounting professional who would like to get a better understanding of what our accounting software is doing

Or

An accounting student or student in general that would like to get a better understanding of what our accounting textbook is doing

This course is a course for us.

Business owners, accounting professionals, and accounting students often have the same problem with accounting. . .

that we are focused on one small component of the accounting process and not able to make all the necessary connections to other components of the accounting process to fully benefit from an understanding of how the business runs.

Business owners focus on cash flow and revenue, accounting professionals focus on their component of the accounting department and enter data into the accounting software, and accounting students focus on the topic they are currently working on.

Accounting professional often focus on one component of the accounting cycle like accounts receivable, accounts payable, or payroll often not having much time to consider the relationship with other areas of the accounting cycle.

Accounting software helps simplify the data entry process, but the simplification also restricts us from seeing how the data is being processed into the end product, into financial statements and reports.

Students are focused on one component of the accounting cycle at a time following an accounting textbook that is putting the pieces of the accounting puzzle together one step at a time.

As students zoom their focus into the current topic, they often lose sight of it fits into the larger objective and this loss of sight causes students to question the relevance of what they are losing. Student’s questioning the relevance of what they are learning causes students to lose interest. A loss of student interest causes students grades to fall.

Part of the reason accounting textbooks have a difficult time incorporating the current topic into the big picture is that a textbook is restricted by what can fit on a page and the problems a textbook provides are restricted by what a student can accomplish with paper and pencil.

The use of instructional video providing a step by step process along with Excel that allows students to sum up large columns of numbers in a short time provides the tools to create a comprehensive problem that will demonstrate current topics in the context of the entire accounting process.

Why Take This Course?

We will start to learn the accounting cycle in a comprehensive way and learn the fundamental of Excel.

Learning the accounting process without Excel or Excel without accounting is a waste of time and not an efficient way to learn either topic.

Like assets being equivalent to liabilities and equity, accounting is equivalent to Excel in many ways and therefore learning Excel will accelerate our learning of accounting and make what we learn more applicable.

Accounting is also the perfect tool to learn Excel. This course will not provide a broad overview of everything Excel can do because that is not a way to learn. Courses attempting to demonstrate all the functions Excel fail to create value for learners because learners will not retain what they learn without a foundation of core concepts and a reason for learning each new function.

This course will cover the fundamentals of Excel, those components used 99% of the time, and the components needed as a foundation for learning more about Excel.

The core components of Excel we will learn include adding, subtracting, and summing up columns of numbers.

We will learn the core concept of Excel through demonstration, repetition, and application to practical problems.

What Will Be Included in This Course?

In addition to instruction video we include an Excel worksheet with just about every presentation allowing us to both see the completed answer and work through the problems step by step along with the video.

Each Excel workbook includes at least two tabs. One tab will have the answer so that we can see how the completed worksheet is constructed and the second tab will provide us the opportunity to enter the data along with the instructional video.

Who Will We Be Learning From?

We will be learning from somebody who has practical accounting experience as a practicing CPA, teaching experience, curriculum design experience.

Credentials include:

Hedge Fund Trading System

Learn the trading strategy that trend-following hedge funds are using to profit from the financial markets.

Created by Hedge Fund Trading System - Full-Time Trader

Students: 27381, Price: Free

In this free Forex trading system, you will discover how I trade for a living. It is not only me who is using this (or similar) trading systems. There are at least a few dozen of trend-following hedge funds that use the same approach to make money on the financial markets. I am sharing my knowledge with all new/experienced traders eager to learn a consistently winning trading strategy that has been working for me for the past 5 years. I would love to make this system accessible to as many traders as possible and that is why I wanted to make it free. I have tried to keep it as concise as possible, so not wasting your time with unnecessary details. In the end- time is money!

The goal of this course apart from showing you a trading system that has been working for me for a long time is to try to protect you from the dangers of the financial markets. I have been day-trading (unsuccessfully) for some time before discovering that longer-term trading is actually the only way to profit from the markets. I know a lot of you are extremely eager to make money quick, but this is not the point of this course. I would like to show you a system that works in the long-term. More and more people are trying to make quick money in the financial markets nowadays, but less and less are making money in the short term. As some of you already know- trading is a zero-sum game. In other words, for every winner there is a loser. That's what I will try to help you with- how to be on the winning side in the long-term.

I am sorry if my english is not perfect, but it is not my native language. I still believe that for trading there are no barriers and traders should follow their dreams. I will do my best to help you reach your goals (financial), but there is one thing I cannot do for you- I cannot teach you how to be disciplined! That is something that you need to discover yourself in order to be a successful trader...

OK. Back to the system- it is a simple trend-following discretionary trading system. I have included 10 videos and a trading manual. Please make sure that you read the trading manual before watching the videos. In this way, you would be prepared what to expect and would better grasp the trading system.

The biggest prize for me would be if I can help new/experienced traders become even more successful!

Last but not least- I would like to thank especially to 3 TRADERS that helped me become a successful trader and follow my dreams- Colibri Trader, Paul (a.k.a. The Flipper) and Brett!

For the sake of the course:

I am using the website Tradingview to show the charts. I do not want to be associated with any brokers, so that is why I am using a free trading website open to anyone. I am not here to make money by referring traders to brokers, although I would like to warn you to be careful when choosing one. There are a lot of bad seed out there. Lastly, I have done the trading manual easily downloadable here, so you can just get it with one click of a mouse.

When you are taking this course, it is not necessary to have prior experience in trading since I go over the basics in the beginning. But for a complete FOREX newbie, it might still be a bit tough to get all of the pieces of information in one go. I anyways try to be as simple to follow as possible. In the end, my trading system is straightforward and effective if one is using it correctly.

Universities are hubs for cutting-edge thought and visionary ideas. Premised on this idea, Blockchain at Berkeley brings together an eclectic team of individuals--ranging from computer scientists to business leaders--to develop what we see as the technology of the future: blockchain. While still in its infancy and often misunderstood, blockchain offers the potential for massive disruption in many industries. By positioning ourselves as the bridge between academia and the public sphere, Blockchain at Berkeley provides the knowledge and education this rapidly-evolving space so desperately needs.

In the current crypto trading climate, we realized that there is a massive amount of misinformation. Many individuals are being taken advantage of by hype and get rich quick schemes with little basis in reality. In order to combat this we are expanding our efforts into the realm of crypto trading.

We currently teach two courses at UC Berkeley on Blockchain technology and development. In addition to this we offer educational courses on blockchain technology to executives and companies that collaborate with us. Blockchain at Berkeley attempts to open source as much of this content as possible to increase the amount of information accessible to the community. The material from one of our technical courses can be found . We are currently working with four different corporations on Blockchain projects including Airbus, Exxon, and Qualcomm as well as several Blockchain platforms such as Cosmos and IOTA. We maintain a position of being blockchain agnostic and seek to stay at the forefront of where this fast paced industry is headed.

Money Never Sleeps. And Your Money Should Not Sleep Either.

You may ask, why trade futures? What are the advantages of futures against the stocks? Stocks are trading on New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) only six and a half hours per day, from 9:30 AM till 4 PM.

On the other hand, futures are trading on Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) almost around the clock, so you can make profits even during Asian or European session, when America sleeps.

Using the leverage of low margin requirements on futures contracts, you can double your investment in futures at the same time when stocks give you only 5% profit.

Besides futures, there are options on futures. They can give you much more profit much faster.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Content and Overview

First part of this course is dedicated to the introduction to futures market. You'll learn what are futures, where are they traded. You'll know about two main categories of futures contracts: commodity futures and financial futures.

This course will show you the real-world example of using the futures by farmers to hedge their crops from price decline.

Each lecture has closed captions (subtitles) for international students.

This course will be updated regularly with new lectures.

Warning: Options and futures involve the risk of substantial loss and are not suitable for everyone. An investor should understand these risks before trading. You should only invest with risk capital.
