Why Bitcoin-, Ethereum- And Litecoin-Related Stock Coinbase Is Getting Hammered – Coinbase Global (NASDAQ:COIN)

Coinbase Global Inc COIN shares are trading lower by 10.34% to $66.27 going into the close of Friday’s trading session. Shares of several banks and financial services companies are trading lower amid overall market weakness following better-than-expected U.S. unemployment data, which could negatively impact lending as it dims the outlook for a Fed policy pivot.

Coinbase is also trading lower in sympathy with the price of Bitcoin BTC/USD and Ethereum ETH/USD.

Bitcoin and Ethereum are trading lower by 2.72% to $19,400 and 2.24% to $1,320, respectively, going into the close of Friday’s session.
