A 12% Rise

The $380 strike price calls for expiration on December 21 have seen their open interest levels increase by almost fivefold on November 12, to approximately 10,500 open contracts. A buyer of the calls would need the stock to increase by 12% to $391 from a stock price of $350.51 on November 9. It is a substantial wager with the open calls worth about $11.4 million. Should the stock rise to that price it would be trading at a new all-time high.

Nearing Resistance

The chart suggests Tesla may rise further to its next level of technical resistance around $363, an increase of 4%. However, should the stock rise above that level of resistance at $363, then the shares should have a clear path higher towards $389, the previous high. The relative strength index has been steadily trending higher since April, and it suggests that bullish momentum is moving into the stock.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

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

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 316.47.

The projected upper bound is: 373.62.

The projected lower bound is: 290.12.

The projected closing price is: 331.87.


A big black candle occurred. This is bearish, as prices closed significantly lower than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “high,” it may be the first sign of a top. If it occurs when prices are confronting an overhead resistance area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or price resistance level), the long black candle adds credibility to the resistance. Similarly, if the candle appears as prices break below a support area, the long black candle confirms the failure of the support area.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 9 white candles and 1 black candles for a net of 8 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

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 56.54. 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 45 period(s) ago.
