Why Shopify, PayPal, and MercadoLibre Stocks Rallied on Wednesday

A broad cross-section of stocks charged sharply higher on Wednesday, as Wall Street focused on Treasury yields and foreign government moves to settle unrest in the financial markets. Shares of e-commerce kingpin Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) rose as much as 5.5%, digital payments denizen PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) jumped as much as 6.9%, and Latin American e-commerce and fintech leader MercadoLibre (NASDAQ: MELI) surged as much as 8.3%. Positive developments in the unfolding saga involving the British pound and a spike in U.S. Treasury yields provided the catalyst.
