Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) has reportedly acquired Hibar Systems
Tesla has quietly acquired Hibar Systems, a company that specializes in high-speed battery manufacturing systems for electric vehicles, according to Canadian news site Electric Autonomy.
It’s unclear when the deal took place, but Tesla lists Hibar as a subsidiary in an Oct. 2 filing with the Canadian government, Electric Autonomy reported. Additionally, Hibar’s website has been updated to a single page in recent months.
Representatives from Tesla weren’t immediately available for comment.
According to Hibar’s LinkedIn page, the Ontario-based company was founded in 1974 and has at least 50 employees. In April, Hibar was awarded a $2 million grant from the National Research Council of Canada to support its efforts to develop Lithium-ion battery manufacturing systems.
It comes as Tesla has been working to develop its own battery cells in-house, as part of a move to offer cheaper, higher-performance electric vehicles and limit its dependence on Panasonic, which jointly owns and operates a battery factory in Sparks, Nevada. The company has gradually strengthened its portfolio of energy tech companies, acquiring Maxwell Technologies for $218 million in February.

A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 25 white candles and 25 black candles.
An engulfing bullish line occurred (where a white candle’s real body completely contains the previous black candle’s real body). The engulfing bullish pattern is bullish during a downtrend. It then signifies that the momentum may be shifting from the bears to the bulls.
If the engulfing bullish pattern occurs during an uptrend (which appears to be the case with TESLA INC), it may be a last engulfing top which indicates a top. The test to see if this is the case is if the next candle closes below the top of the current (white) candle’s real body.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -38. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 1 period(s) ago.
