Crypto exchange Coinbase (COIN) and retail trading platform Robinhood Markets (HOOD) both traded at all-time lows on Monday before bouncing back with the overall equity and crypto markets.
Coinbase shares hit a low of about $162.54 on Monday morning, down more than 60% from their 52-week high of $429.54 and down 35% from their opening reference price of $250 when the company went public last April. They rebounded to finish the day at $191.48, giving the company a market cap of about $50 billion.
Meanwhile, Robinhood, whose crypto trading revenue has increased significantly in the last year, hit a low of $11.15 per share in the morning, down 87% from its 52-week high of $85. Shares rebounded to finish the day at $13.21, giving the company a market cap of just under $12 billion. Robinhood debuted as a public company last July.
The two companies have fallen sharply of late amid the overall tech and crypto sell-off. Coinbase is down 24% this year alone, while Robinhood has fallen 29% during the same period. The price of bitcoin is down roughly 25% year to date, and off 50% from its all-time high reached in November.
Multiple crypto-exposed stocks including bitcoin miners also fell and then bounced from their session lows Monday as crypto prices advanced in the afternoon.
Bitcoin rallied just under 5% Monday afternoon to just under $37,000, while ether gained 1.4% to $2,445.
Bitcoin believers are trying to hold the line, according to Edward Moya, senior market analyst at Oanda. This is a key moment for Bitcoin and if panic selling returns on Wall Street, the $30,000 level might not prove very supportive, he added in a note to clients Monday.
