Broad markets slid yet again on Wednesday after the release of the FOMC minutes which seemed to suggest Fed Chair Powell may be tapering Fed spending in the near future. ARK funds took another loss but it was minimal at worst. ARKQ performed the best out of the group, up 0.1% on the day, while ARKX underperformed the rest of the group, down 0.7%.

ARK Invest has been the talk of Wall Street over the past couple of years, outperforming the market and solidifying its place among the big players in the investments world. Wood is the founder and head of this investment house, and many have compared her rising star to the likes of Warren Buffett.
