Title The financial markets context
Description

It can be difficult to determine whether successful investments are a matter of skill or luck. In this free course, The financial markets context, you will interrogate whether markets can function efficiently, and what factors might militate against this. You will also learn the importance of the Efficient Markets Hypothesis.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/money-management/money/accounting-and-finance/the-financial-markets-context/content-section-0" /> First published on Thu, 19 Jul 2012 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/money-management/money/accounting-and-finance/the-financial-markets-context/content-section-0">The financial markets context</a>.
