Emotions are running high in markets right now. Indexes swing up and down as investors buy and sell off headlines.

It begs the question: Could a robot beat the market and provide us outsized returns without all the drama?

Back in 2019, a revolutionary new exchange-traded fund (ETF) was in the news.

This fund was ground-breaking because it used artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to buy and sell holdings.

And the EquBot AI Powered Equity ETF (NYSE: AIEQ) was actually beating the S&P 500! By August 2019, AIEQ was up 19% on the year compared to the S&P 500 gain of only 17%.

AIEQ was launched in October 2017. It uses AI to build predictive models within the universe of U.S. stocks. Those models identify stocks that have the most potential for capital appreciation.

But can algorithms and machine learning replace human subjectivity and analysis?

In this episode of The Bull & The Bear, I’ll take a deeper dive into some AI-traded ETFs and tell you how they stack up.
