What 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.

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.
