Following the collapse of crypto exchange FTX, the ARK Innovation ETF fell over 6.5 percent to $32.57 on Nov. 9. It was thus approaching a loss of almost 80 percent compared to its February 2021 peak.

The very next day, however, the fund experienced the biggest price jump in its history – by 14 percent in just one day. Its largest holdings, Zoom Video Communications, as well as Roku and Teladoc, are each up over 14 percent, while Tesla is up 7 percent. Since the beginning of this year, the ARK Innovation ETF has fallen 58 percent to $40.05 (as of 11/14/2022).
