This module studies a range of human emotions and the effect of human behaviour on financial markets. It explains what makes people behave as they do, and how this (somewhat predictable) behaviour can be used to predict market movements and enhance trading profits. It also examines different types of investment risks and methods for mitigating risk through hedging or diversification. Throughout the module, students will be required to assess the risks within their demo trading portfolios and manage their risk exposure effectively at all times with an emphasis on stop loss and limit order placement. They will be required to manage liquidity and market capitalisation constraints, average holding periods, both intraday and as part of their end of day process.
