Technically, Shopify stock has a strong buyer interest as the recent selling pressure came from an all-time high of $1762.92. Although the current price is below the dynamic 100-day moving average, it showed an amazing recovery from the $1285.50 support level.

Therefore, the primary target of the recent bullish rejection would be $1450.00 to $533.32 area. On the other hand, a break below the $1285.50 with a bearish daily candle would open rooms for testing the $1181.57 level.
