With the markets getting pounded lately, I am looking at the names that have held up. MasterCard is one of them. While the stock has endured some selling this past week, it appears to be contained. The chart shows a better consolidation than its competitors (Visa and American Express).
Money flows have been very positive, though recent volume trends are bearish. MACD is on a sell signal, but it looks like it’s corrective. If the 240 level holds here, we could see this stock eventually make a run past the old highs (around 257). That will only happen when/if the market turns around.
