Co-operative learning initiative


I'm an undergrad interested in trading and taking an auto-didactic approach to learning the required knowledge. What I propose is similar to a book club, have a weekly topic, such as researching different regions (Middle East, Russia, Asia), investment products, quant-based skills - data analysis and programming. Topics could then be discussed, be it on WSO or privately.

For the older members of WSO, help with topics and creating somewhat of a syllabus would be very helpful; or alternatively, guidance on how best to learn.
