Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) energy storage segment is growing rapidly

Tesla’s energy storage segment is growing rapidly. In Q2, it deployed 415 megawatt-hours of energy storage capacity, up 81% year over year. In addition, management said its residential energy storage solution, called a Powerwall, is now installed at over 50,000 different locations.

Zooming out beyond a single quarter, Tesla deployed 1.04 gigawatt-hours of energy storage capacity in 2018, nearly tripling the 358 megawatt-hours of energy storage the company deployed in 2017. 

Today, the total footprint of Tesla’s energy storage products represents a cumulative capacity of over 2 gigawatt-hours — and the company believes its launch of Megapack will help this number “accelerate exponentially in the coming years.”

Its second-quarter update said that, “Additional cell supply combined with our new module line designed by Tesla Grohmann enabled a step change in energy storage production.”

Now Tesla just needs demand to keep growing — something the launch of a new and improved energy storage product may help along.

Candlesticks

A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 27 white candles and 23 black candles for a net of 4 white candles.

Momentum Indicators

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 17.6185. This is an oversold reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a sell 5 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 48.40. 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 2 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 -91. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 0 period(s) ago.

MACD
