Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) prices continue to bounce up and down; hike will take effect midnight April 1

Prices on all Tesla Inc. inventory cars will rise by about 3% on April 1, Chief Executive Elon Musk said Sunday.

In a series of tweets, Musk said the price hike will take effect at midnight, April 1 — “so effective April 2.” The first quarter ends March 31.

Inventory cars are those that have already been produced — with both new and used vehicles for sale — so they are not as customizable as Tesla’s online orders.

Prices on Tesla vehicles have bounced up and down in recent months, irritating some owners and prospective customers. In announcing 3% price hikes on most of its vehicles earlier this month, following price cuts just weeks before, Musk said prices would “revert to normal” and said “In retrospect, lower prices shouldn’t have been offered” in the first place.

Last week, Musk reportedly asked all Tesla employees to help deliver new cars to customers in an end-of-the-quarter crush.

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 306.61.

The projected upper bound is: 292.20.

The projected lower bound is: 233.90.

The projected closing price is: 263.05.

Momentum Indicators

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.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 32.5975. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 1 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 36.09. 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 133 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 -123.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 2 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 4 period(s) ago.
