New Course - Financial Time Series Analysis with R

We are pleased to announce the addition of a new course - Financial Time Series with R - to our growing library of courses on Data Science for Finance Professionals.

Course: Financial Time Series Analysis

Learn the fundamentals of analyzing a financial time series in R

This course provides an introduction to the financial times series data and how we can analyze the time series data in R. You will learn about how to explore and build time series data, calculate its key statistics, and plot time series charts. You will also learn about how to use the important time series models such as White Noise, Random Walk, Autoregression and Moving Average. You will learn how to simulate these models in R and fit these models into financial time series data using the ARIMA functions. Finally you will learn about how to use the models to predict the future.
