Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) home state of California accounted for almost half of all Model 3 registrations through the first 10 months of 2018
Tesla Inc.’s home state of California accounted for almost half of all Model 3 registrations through the first 10 months of 2018, a sign that the electric-car maker is wildly popular in the Golden State but not yet ubiquitous in other parts of the country.
Through October 2018, the last month for which full data is available, California registered 39,606 Model 3 sedans, or 49.3 percent of all Model 3 registrations in the U.S., according to IHS Markit. Florida came in second with 4,064, or 5.1 percent. California is the most populous U.S. state with about 40 million residents, almost twice the size of Florida’s population.
IHS Markit tracks “total registrations,” which includes retail sales to individual customers as well as fleet sales.
Tesla began delivering the Model 3s in small numbers in 2017. In January, the Palo Alto, California-based company said it delivered 61,394 Model 3 vehicles during the fourth quarter. The company doesn’t release delivery figures by region or state but typically begins deliveries of new models in California.

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).
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 101.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.
