The Daily View for Mastercard

  • At the time of this writing, MA’s price is up $1.34 (0.37%) from the day prior.
  • The daily chart shows that Mastercard has seen 3 straight up days.
  • If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the daily chart exists on the 50 day timeframe.
  • Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on Mastercard. Given that we see an uptrend on the 10 daily candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting.
  • Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the daily chart is that the 200 day moving average has been crossed, so that price is now turning above it. The moving averages on the daily timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.
  • Divergence between MA’s price and its RSI may be manifesting. As such, be on the lookout for trend reversal in MA’s price.
