Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Updates Autopilot Mode

  • Tesla is improving Autopilot with a forthcoming update, with a focus on making the ride smoother while the autonomous highway driving system is engaged
  • Updates to the Autopilot system are now separated by the hardware generation of the vehicle – later model Teslas have different sensor and computing on board, which will eventually be able to handle full self-driving capabilities
  • Earlier this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that he was hoping for the automaker to launch in India this summer.
  • But he expressed concerns last week about local regulations preventing a launch. The government is now reassuring the company that they could sell in India, but they seem to be insisting that they would have to manufacture locally.
  • Tesla is bringing back free, unlimited Supercharging — but only a select few can access it.
  • Starting Tuesday, anyone who uses a referral code to purchases a new Model S or Model X gets free, unlimited Supercharger access.
  • Tesla started its new referral program last Friday, which allows owners to give a referral code to up to five friends in exchange for certain rewards, like a limited-edition red Powerwall.

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 25.6446. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 6 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 47.00. 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 15 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 -74. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 6 period(s) ago.
