What's next for AI shares?

There's little doubt that AI has captured the markets' imagination – but will the AI rally continue as new tech launches, or could this be another dotcom bubble? Only time will tell, which is why taking a fundamental approach can be key to trading successfully.

For now, it looks like there will be some big winners and some big losers as AI gains ground. For traders, this means plenty of opportunity – as well as risk.

Make sure you never miss the latest market-moving news by reading our expert analysts' latest research.

Why trade the AI index?

Trading the AI Index offers several benefits for traders looking to gain exposure to the AI trend. Trading a basket of stocks requires less research and is less risky than trading individual stocks by offering you a way to trade the trend of AI through a diversified basket of companies.

Trading individual AI stocks requires more work, but can offer better returns. For example, traders that owned NVIDIA shares have outperformed those holding the AI index this year. However, putting all your eggs in one basket is more risky.

We also offer AI-focused exchange-traded funds, including the LG Artificial Intelligence ETF and the second Global X Robotics Artificial Intelligence ETF.

How to trade the AI index

If you think AI is overrated and is headed for a correction, then you could sell or short the AI index.

If, on the other hand, you see AI growing further, with the companies at the top remaining dominant, then you may want to buy or go long on the AI index.

Remember, as with all our indices, ETFs and shares, our AI charts are easily accessible on any device, and come with technical indicators and drawing tools as standard.
