  2. Abhinav Omar says:

    Very nicely explained. Just one suggestion, in the key takeaway slide (last 15 sec of the video), varsity logo (for subscribe button) in the middle and next video thumbnail in the Right hand corner is hindering some text. Can you please fix these? Or add extra 15 seconds blank space at the last so these thumbnails icons cover that blank space and key takeaway slides will cleared from any hinderance.

  3. Mohit says:

    Logo and Next Video disrupts the Key Takeaways thumbnail. Also Next video skips one video (eg. after watching Video 2 the next video they shows is Video 4 instead of Video 3).

  4. Dhaval Mevcha says:

    Logo and next videos disrupt the takeaway slides in all the videos. please fix this.

  5. Brianna says:

  6. Anshul Gupta says:

    I have a Managing personal Investment and Experiential trading subject in my MBA but honestly these videos are 10 times better and more interactive and informative than what is being taught by the well qualified professor. I understand Stock markets so much better now thank you Zerodha for your efforts. So grateful!!

  7. Nikhielesh says:

    Key take aways are actually published below the video too. Hope its the same what is mentioned at the end of each lesson.

  8. Anuraj Gupta says:

    Please remove the next recommended video pop-up that comes at the end of the video inside the video. This is coming on top of the key takeaway points and because of the pop-up, we are unable to read the text written at the end of the video. Regards.

  11. Akash says:

    Hey guys, for those who are annoyed that YouTube cards disrupt the takeaways presented at the end of the video, you can install a chrome extension called ‘Youtube Enhancer’ if you are on a laptop/PC and there, you get an option to hide it. Hope it helps

    Just 1 query to ask – “How long does it takes to complete the process explained in the Market participants and Intermediaries ?”

  19. Anupam says:

  27. nik says:

    Hi. It’s still not fixed, the Varsity logo and next video thumbnail are still covering the video making the text underneath unreadable. The text below the video (Key takeaways from this chapter) has typo error in 1st point.

  28. Shobhit says:

    Just one suggestion, in the key takeaway slide (last 15 sec of the video), varsity logo (for subscribe button) in the middle and next video thumbnail in the Right hand corner is hindering some text.

    And due to this we’re unable to take the key notes

    • Karthik Rangappa says:

      Shobhit, this was fixed in the later videos. Also we have put up the key takeaways in the chapter itself.

  29. Aswin says:

    Great work! Thank you so much.

  30. Vinay says:

    Very informative videos but Key takeaways are not seen properly because of the overlap of Varsity logo and the next video thumbnail

  31. Rohit says:

    Sir aap only English language mat karna
    Other language aap ke video banana

  32. Santosh Rammohan says:

    This was very clear. What I thing was the only missing piece in this chapter was to spell out the abbreviation I.e CSDL, ICCL,SEBI etc…… reason being, while it’s clear for folks who know what this means and stand for, imagine how useful and informative it would be if there was snap shot of the full form highlighted on the screen while the topic was discussed. My 2 cents. Overall, great chapter

  33. Omkar says:

    Thank u good lessons.

  34. Sapna says:

    Thank you so much to make us understand how this system works.
