Tesla has removed any mention of the Model 3 with a standard battery pack,Electrek first reported Monday, calling into question the long-awaited $US35,000 base model of the sedan.

The cheapest Model 3 available to preorder on Tesla’s website as of Tuesday was the mid-range-battery, rear-wheel-drive version for $US42,900 before any savings. That price can be lowered to $US32,850, the company says, factoring in tax savings worth more than $US5,000 and six years’ worth of “gasoline savings.”

Recently, the standard version was listed as available in four to six months, Electrek said. That no longer appears to be the case.

A $US35,000 base model, originally announced with the rollout of the Model 3 in 2016, is widely seen as Tesla’s path to becoming a mass-market automaker. CEO Elon Musk once said the company could start delivering the cheapest version by the end of 2018.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the downside.

The projected upper bound is: 340.53.

The projected lower bound is: 268.59.

The projected closing price is: 304.56.


A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 4 white candles and 6 black candles for a net of 2 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 26 white candles and 24 black candles for a net of 2 white candles.

A long upper shadow occurred. This is typically a bearish signal (particularly when it occurs near a high price level, at resistance level, or when the security is overbought).

Momentum Indicators

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.

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 30.5885. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 7 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 45.02. 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 buy 110 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 -34. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 16 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 11 period(s) ago.
