Tesla describes the Supercharger network as the “world’s fastest charging network.” The Elon Musk-led company has been looking to expand it aggressively, particularly in urban settings, but has frequently fallen short of its stated targets.

The EV maker planned to have 18,000 Superchargers in its network as of 2018-end, but the actual number of deployed units was at 12,000 by the end of the year.
Tesla introduced a “completely new architecture” for EV charging, called V3, in March last year. Musk said in May 2019 that the company was planning to speed up and bring more Superchargers soon and that it had earlier “slowed down a bit to allow Supercharger V3 production to get going.”
Why It Matters: The Palo Alto-based EV maker reported having 17,467 Superchargers in its network as of September, suggesting that the company is, in fact, deploying the new units in the charging network relatively faster.
Tesla was also reported to be expanding the Supercharger presence in another 42 of Target Corporation TGT stores in September.
The company has also looked to expand its destination charging network, in partnership with hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, and resorts.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 84.0005. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a buy 4 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 53.07. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 46 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 83. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 0 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 1 period(s) ago.
