Tesla shares accelerated in the past week after being in reverse for most of the year.

The stock spiked 8% in the past five sessions, picking up speed on Friday as its upcoming stock and bond offering closed in on nearly a $3 billion capital raise. However, it remains 35% off its 52-week high and was down 2% in Monday’s premarket at $249.90 per share amid a broad sell-off for the market.

However, one contrarian indicator has Johnson holding off on turning completely negative on the stock.

“Short interest level has been rising on here and that’s where a lot of investors have been speculating it will break the lower end of the range,” said Shayne Heffernan. “I want to see that downtrend reversal as those short interest players have been wrong in the past.”

High levels of short interest have often occurred at troughs in the stock’s price. This is likely due to short squeezes where a move higher in price pushes short sellers to close out their positions, which then pump the shares higher again.

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 281.45.

The projected upper bound is: 279.32.

The projected lower bound is: 229.79.

The projected closing price is: 254.55.

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 88.7877. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a buy 4 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 46.48. 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 5 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 1. This is not a topping or bottoming area. 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 buy 0 period(s) ago.
