The popular Robinhood stock trading application fell on Monday amid a stock market crash that fell so quickly due to coronavirus Fears and the drop in oil prices that trade stopped. A similar blackout occurred on March 2 although for a much longer period of time.

The company said through Twitter It has "partially restored" the services after the trade was suspended on Monday morning. The Robinhood status page showed a problem that appeared at 6:51 a.m. PT and was working on a solution at 7:30 a.m.

The shares collapsed so much on Monday morning that they triggered a failure test that stops the trade for 15 minutes when there is a rapid seven percent decline in the S&P 500.

Robinhood did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
