Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) on track with an important increase in deliveries during the quarter
After a significant production ramp for the Model 3 at the end of the second quarter, Tesla confirmed a record number of vehicles in transit to be delivered in the third quarter: 11,166 Model 3 vehicles and 3,892 Model S and X vehicles.
Those vehicles are likely all already delivered and Tesla has continued producing about 7,000 vehicles per week since then, according to CEO Elon Musk.
Tesla fell $50 to about $300 on news that Elon Musk has asked suppliers to reduce their prices, and because of a tweet he made in response to someone who called his efforts to rescue the boys trapped in a Thailand cave a “publicity stunt.” Both reasons don’t seem to have much bearing on the value of the Company. Investors should look beyond this news.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 337.07.
The projected lower bound is: 281.08.
The projected closing price is: 309.08.
A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
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 (which appears to be the case with TESLA INC). It then signifies that the momentum may be shifting from the bears to the bulls.
If the engulfing bullish pattern occurs during an uptrend, 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.
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.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 32.5289. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 3 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 44.80. 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 sell 25 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 -95. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 0 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 sell 21 period(s) ago.
