What’s been happening with Zip

On 1 June Zip requested to be placed in a trading halt, pending an announcement.

What followed was news of a capital raising of $200 million, coupled with the acquisition of Quadpay, a New York-based buy now, pay later provider.

With the US retail market being valued at $7.35 trillion and Quadpay one of the leading BNPL platforms, the market was clearly enthused with the acquisition.

With the purchase of Quadpay, ZipPay will have a presence in five countries; Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the largest of all, the United States.

Combined this exposes Z1P to over $6 trillion of retail sales.

The Z1P share price created a new all-time high of $6.58, and should the run-up continue, it may find some resistance at the level of $6.90.

This level is based on placing price extensions on previous ranges.

To the downside, it can be seen on the chart where a gap has been created in the price (red rectangle).

Sometimes when this occurs, the share price can return to these levels to ‘fill the gap’ so to speak.

Should this take place, then historical support levels of $3.84 and $3.45 may come into focus.
