Take a position on the key tech stocks
Major tech stocks have performed extremely well in recent years. Looking to the future, as the impact of the pandemic continues to wane, this trend could be set to continue.
Our FAANGs index features 10 stocks from the upper echelons of the Nasdaq 100 (traded as the US Tech 100). Alongside the traditional FAANG constituents – Meta (previously Facebook) Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google – it also features other major tech stocks like Tesla and Intel.
The aim is to capture the total return performance of the top 10 traded companies listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. It’s a great index to trade if you have strong views on the direction of travel for the biggest tech stocks that shape consumer habits with their innovations.

Is the clock ticking on tech?
As with all stocks, balancing fundamental considerations is important when assessing whether big tech is headed upwards or downwards. In 2021, a seismic demand for tech and lockdown disruption led to a global shortage of semiconductor chips, with demand outstripping supply in hardware from iPhones to PCs.
The threat of inflationary pressures looms in 2022, not to mention the regulatory and reputational issues that can dominate headlines and impact price. Nonetheless, a return to supply chain functionality, a potential end to Covid, and a surge of innovative products have the potential to spark another sustained bull run.

If you think big tech has become overvalued and is headed for a widespread market correction, then you could sell or short the FAANGs index.
If, on the other hand, you see tech continuing to be an intrinsic aspect of consumers’ lives, with the companies at the top remaining dominant, then you may want to buy or go long on FAANGs.
Remember, as with all our other trading instruments, our FAANGs charts are easily accessible on any device, and come with technical indicators and drawing tools as standard.
