This level of enthusiasm was shared across all asset classes, with 44% of equity traders, 31% of fixed income traders, and 29% of futures traders expecting to increase their use of AI technologies in the future.
In addition, the survey found that traders across the board were preparing to use AI to better identify and capture trading opportunities, with 74% of respondents in the survey indicating they planned to utilize AI-powered analytics to inform their trading strategies.

These results demonstrate that, when it comes to AI, traders have both the interest and the confidence to move forward with the adoption of this modern technology. AI’s potential to improve the accuracy and efficiency of financial strategies is a key factor that has energized the industry and marks an important shift in the way traders do business.
