Markets soared to all-time highs on Friday following Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s comment on Fed policy. A rising tide does lift all ships, and ARK funds jumped to close out the week as well. ARKG performed the best out of the group, up 2.5% on the day, while ARKW underperformed the rest of the group, up 1.6%. The gains from last year are slowly sliding away, but Cathie Wood may have something up her sleeve as she is constantly reshuffling her ETFs to stand up to market headwinds.

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.
