  • Prof Stanley is very knowledgeable in the subject and very dedicated in his teaching. His lectures are one of the best classes I have ever taken in NUS.
  • Very enthusiastic professor with a lot of passion for this field, it was a pleasure to be part of his class. A very patient and understanding professor, he takes the time to explain concepts and constantly stops to check if the class has caught up to the concepts taught.
  • explaining difficult concepts with comprehensive mathematical proof
  • Very detailed explanation of concepts.
  • Engaging
  • Teaches very well
  • Very knowledgeable
  • Very helpful in answering questions
  • He's able to explain the concepts clearly, especially when students ask questions.
  • Detailed explanations
  • his ability to breakdown a complex topic with mathematics proofs that we understand. He is also one of the few prof who is actually very concerned that understand what he is teaching, and do not mind going the same concept over and over again.
  • Very good ground knowledge
  • Very good at answering students questions and very steady learning curve.
  • Clear and concise
  • Able to explain any queries posed by students
  • Engaging students every lesson
  • The prof is very clear in teaching and explains the concepts pretty well. The theoretical concepts are also supported by real-life applications which makes the mod more practical.
  • He's very patient with his teachings
  • Interactive Teaching
  • Interactive teaching style with great content
  • Really knows how to teach and understand the different ways that student look at the problem.
  • His style of teaching is extremely engaging, and the content he put up is really gold; much of it is hardly being thought clearly on the internet, and really through this course, i learnt not just the theoretical knowledge, but also practical aspects.
  • Strict and knowadgelable
  • Prof Stanley is patient and always willing to answer our questions raised in class. He organised the content well.
  • Very enthusiastic professor with a lot of passion for this field, it was a pleasure to be part of his class. A very patient and understanding professor, he takes the time to explain concepts and constantly stops to check if the class has caught up to the concepts taught.
  • Clear explanation
  • slow down the pace sometime
  • Too many homework and deadline too short.
  • Try to upload the slides with the plots after the lecture, it is easier for students to follow and revise
  • More homework
  • Homework can be in Python too
  • Project, quiz and mid terms was not hard enough especially quiz
  • Can give more homework.
  • Project and quiz are not hard enough.
  • The current amount of quizzes are good and helps to track learning! Should be kept that way next semester
  • too much of the project is unrelated to content taught in the lectures, would suggest scraping the project and raising the midterm weight instead
  • N.A.
  • NIL
  • It can be improved if he has shared his lecture slides for revision.
  • More practise questions
  • Web lecture which can be replayed for reference
  • One improvement may be that the content in the second half of the course (GARCH variants etc ) seems to be watered down by a lot.
  • Give more practice
  • Include peer evaluation for the group project. The workload for the group project is heavy and got extremely irresponsible teammates.
  • Make the homework and quizzes more difficult, and increase the weightage for the exams because these are "real" reflections of whether we understand the materials.
  • Less technical, more practical. This module seemed more like a Time Series Analysis module rather than capital markets trading and analysis. The practical sessions during lecture and the projects were great, but I feel more emphasis could have been made on trading strategies, and less on the math proving. For example, on different types of trades (carry, pairs, momentum, reversal, factor models), and how to analyse these trades (turnover of model, win-loss, hit-rate, calendar returns for example) using analytics and how to use machine learning to trade these as well. Maybe consider using QuantConnect for the trading project as well for its ease of backtesting strategies and vast amount of data available.

  • Make the homework and quizzes more difficult, and increase the weightage for the exams because these are "real" reflections of whether we understand the materials.
  • can include more concepts related to the capital market, the module name can be misleading as it appears more financial related and less mathematical-heavy than its actual content
  • Can increase the amount of content in lectures
  • Feel that sometimes the pace is slow
  • Pace can be faster.
  • More content should be included.
  • N.A.
  • May be focusing too much on time series, was hoping to learn some tricks and things to look out for in trading as well.
