Thursday night futures edged higher after a slow trading session. Even though the S&P 500 made its first gain in three sessions there are still economic and geopolitical concerns that are weighing down markets. ARK funds had a rough day too. ARKF performed the best out of the group, with the exchange-traded fund down 0.5%, while ARKG did the worst, down 1.8%. 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.
