Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model Y unveiling by CEO Elon Musk failed to wow Wall Street

The Tesla Model Y unveiling by CEO Elon Musk failed to wow Wall Street, with Tesla tumbling in Friday’s stock market. But setting aside the Model Y and all the drama surrounding the luxury electric vehicle maker, Tesla stock has been a poor performer for quite some time.

The latest Tesla stock slide came after a failed early December breakout from a 366.85 cup-with-handle buy point. No shame there, with the stock market correction going into overdrive. But Tesla stock is now significantly below where it was on Dec. 24, when the correction ended. Meanwhile, the current stock market rally has powered higher.

Back on Aug. 7, Tesla stock cleared a short consolidation, when it spiked 17% to just hit an all-time high of 387.46 after Elon Musk made his infamous “go private” and “funding secured” tweets. Shares fell back the next day, tumbling to 247.77 two months later.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

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

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 309.98.

The projected upper bound is: 305.74.

The projected lower bound is: 243.73.

The projected closing price is: 274.74.
