Only positive signals in the chart today. PayPal Holdings holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages, but the stock has a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $77.84 and $79.48. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday February 21, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.

The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at $80.42 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.
