The long-term monthly chart for MarketAxess Holdings shows a decade-long uptrend with a few pullbacks. During every pullback, however, the price has respected the bottom of the long-term trend. The most recent pullback occurred over the first half of 2021 as prices fell 30% from a peak of $600 to around $423. The $423 level is an important one because it acted as a resistance level in 2019 and then turned into support in 2020 and 2021.

The target price is now $585 – $600, with a stop-loss set below the support zone at $410.
