Speaking of stock markets, is AI going to eat the lunch of the average retail investor? AI or Artificial Intelligence is one of the hottest topics of discussion these days.

You see, the computers that we have used up till now couldn't think on their own. Their outputs were entirely based on a set of instructions or the code as they are called in the technical language.

To put it crudely, no matter how fast or how efficient the computer, it is still a calculating machine at its core. However, AI is a different beast altogether.

It is an intelligence that has been inspired by the natural or the human form of intelligence. In other words, it tries to mimic the human brain. In that case, will it pose a threat to the average retail investor? Will AI impact long term return for the small investor?

Rahul Shah, co-head of research at Equitymaster, answers all these question in the below video.

Oil prices at 1-month low

Oil prices fell US$ 2 on 12 June, with Brent dropping to one-month lows ahead of the US Federal Reserve meeting as investors tried to gauge the central bank's appetite for further rate hikes.

Concerns on China's fuel demand growth and rising Russian crude supply also weighed on the market.

Chinese economic data raised concerns about demand growth in the world's largest crude importer, offsetting a surge in oil prices from Saudi Arabia pledging to cut production by 1 million (m) barrels per day (bpd) in July.

Brent crude futures fell US$ 1.91, or 2.5%, to US$ 72.88 a barrel, and US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude was at US$ 68.15, down US$ 2.02 or 2.8%. Both benchmarks posted their second straight weekly declines last week due to the same reasons above.

Back home, on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), crude oil futures due for a 16 June expiry, was last trading lower by 2.6%.

Since oil price movements interest you, explore stocks benefitting from falling crude oil prices.
