Tech sector and large cap BNPL shares making headway on Friday

The S&P/ASX Information Technology (INDEXASX: XIJ) index is pushing higher on Friday, up 1.63%.

In addition, leading ASX-listed BNPL shares are also making gains alongside the Zip share price.

Headlining the gains is the Afterpay Ltd (ASX: APT) share price, rallying 3.07% to $109.09.

The Sezzle Inc (ASX: SZL) share price is also eking out some gains, up 0.62% to $8.12.

Despite the larger end of the BNPL town making headway on Friday, the same can’t be said about the smaller BNPL players.

Splitit Ltd (ASX: SPT), Openpay Group Ltd (ASX: OPY), Laybuy Holdings Ltd (ASX: LBY) and Humm Group Ltd (ASX: HUM) have all failed to bounce on Friday, falling 0.94%, 2.99%, 1.08% and 1.01% respectively.

What happened to the Zip share price yesterday?

The Zip share price took a 7.9% tumble on Thursday after the release of its quarterly update.

The company delivered classic triple digit growth across key performance metrics, including a 116% year-on-year increase in quarterly total transaction volume to $1.8 billion and a 104% increase in quarterly revenue to $129.9 million.

Despite a well-rounded announcement with strong growth figures and continued geographic expansion, it might have missed lofty broker expectations.

The selling pressure on Thursday witnessed just over 30 million Zip shares change hands, compared to its 10-day average of about 13.6 million shares.
