PAYX fell below its solid 2-year uptrend line in January. Then PAYX failed on 2 separate occasions to regain its trend (zoom chart). PAYX rallied over 200% from the March 2020 lows to the December 2021 highs., but its trajectory has changed. The weekly chart reveals that long-term support is far below Tuesdays close; near 85, which was the 2021 breakout level.
RRG analysis shows that PAYX has moved into the Weakening quadrant, losing relative strength and momentum, and headed toward the Lagging quadrant.
