Should You Buy Gold Or Bitcoin To Hedge Against A Stock Market

  • If I have to recommend only one book on technical analysis, I would recommend, How Charts Can Help You in the boutiques Market by William L. Jiler. You will notice chapter numbers and sessions under each topic, with the chapters representing chapters in my Applied Corporate Finance book, a book that I loved writing but one that is so hopelessly over priced that I do not require it for my own class, and the sessions showing the sequence of the class through the 26 sessions that start on February 4, 2019 and end on May 13, 2019. The class meets every Monday and Wednesday during this period, barring the break week of May 16-23, and the syllabus for the class can be found at this link. As with the corporate finance class, we will meet every Monday and Wednesday for 14 (15) weeks, starting February 4 (January 28) for my MBA (undergraduate) class.


    For me, one of those moments occurred in the second year of my MBA program at UCLA, when, cash poor, I decided to be a teaching assistant for a quarter to earn some money. At the time I made that decision, my plans were typical of many of my MBA cohort, to get a job in consulting or investment banking, and to make my work up the corporate ladder, but the day that I walked in to teach my first session, I knew that I had found my calling. Corporate finance is a class that covers the first principles that govern how a business should be run and its reach is complete. As fate would have it, I found myself fascinated by finance, and I ended up as a finance professor at NYU's business school. I teach the class around what I call my big picture page, where I classify business decisions into investing, finance and dividend groupings and frame how to make those decisions with an end objective of increasing the value of the business. If there is one class in finance that everyone, no matter what their paths in life or business may be, should take, it is corporate finance.
