June 18, 2021 11:30

Technically, the stock price looks very interesting. A bullish ascending triangle pattern has formed on the daily chart of the PayPal’s share price over the last few months, as shown below. Now, the stock is trying to break through technical horizontal resistance around $276.00.

If the price can break through the top of the ascending triangle resistance level and hold, traders may well be focused on the all-time high price of around $307.00, representing a more than 10% surge higher.

Of course, there is the potential for a false breakout to develop. However, sentiment remains bullish as the Nasdaq 100 stock market index continues in an uptrend lifting the broader technology sector.
