This book presents 10 methods to forecast economic variables such as interest rates or GDP growth rates, and financial variables such as stocks and bonds. The book comes with 14 Excel spreadsheets, 7 Python codes, and 10 videos. 


Most events in economics and finance are stochastic, i.e. unknown. But we can forecast them with a certain probability. That is what this book does. We introduce 10 forecasting methodologies: Simple ones such as Fundamental and Technical analysis (chapters 2 and 3), and traditional forecasting methods such as Statistical Concepts (chapters 4, 5, and 6). We also explain the latest, more mathematical methods such as Stochastic Processes (chapters 7 and 8), Extreme Value Theory (chapter 9) and AI and Forecasting (chapter 10). So we hope many can benefit from this book.
