Capital Markets

Course Number: 
BT 322

This is a survey course that addresses the major financial markets, including the debt, equity, government securities and commodity exchanges.  I have designed the course to provide a basic appreciation of why these markets exist, who are the players; how they work; what are the rules and how they are evolving.  We will spend considerable time in discussing in detail the nature of the principal financial instruments or securities that are being bought and sold in these markets.  Within this context we will also discuss how money is being made and lost in these exchanges; although we will not spend a lot of time on the financial theories of how these securities are pricing.
