I will show you where to get free and reliable data, how to analyze and plot that data using Python and Jupyter notebooks (I do expect you to know a little python).
We’ll start with the S&P 500, my favorite index and the world’s economic barometer. This powerful and telling index comprise some 80% of all equity market value in the United States and 30% of its revenue comes from outside the US.
