      PYPL stock’s Movement

      Like most other online payment platforms, PayPal also took a hit from the lockdowns of Covid-19. While the stock did show some good gains on its third-quarter earnings and related news but overall the stock has lost 19.71% year to date, with a loss of 32.72% in the past three months only.

      The stock’s last big gain was on November 4, when it reached a high of $231. While it was not much of a big gain compared to its 52-week high of $310.16. It was enough for profit bookers to take advantage of. After the gain on November 4, the stock had been in a more or less downtrend with a slight gain around November 15. Currently, the stock had been on a 5th consecutive day of loss or downtrend, until the market closed on November 23.

      The market sentiments seem to be in favor of the PYPL stock, as it has started gaining mildly and recovering from its previous fall.

      As of November 23, news is surging about new Covid-19 patients being diagnosed across Europe. This might lead to new series of lockdowns. But only time will tell if the stock will suffer more or continue going up.
