Cathie Wood-led ARK Investment Management sold 85,337 shares of financial services company Robinhood Markets Inc HOOD at an estimated valuation of over $888,000, based on Tuesday’s closing price. The sale was done through the ARK Fintech Innovation ETF ARKF.

Robinhood is ARK's seventh-largest holding, with a weight of 4.97%. ARK seems to have taken advantage of the recent market rally to offload part of its holdings, as the company’s shares gained over 28% since the beginning of 2023. Despite its recent rally, the stock is still down more than 28% over the past one-year period.

Options expiring on Feb. 3 indicate Robinhood stock faces stiff resistance all the way from $10.5 to $11.5 during the week , while support comes in between $9.5 and $10.
