Tesla

The Tesla stock price fell by -3.92% on the last day (Wednesday, 20th Dec 2023) from $257.22 to $247.14. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 5.20% from a day low at $247.00 to a day high of $259.84. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days and is up by 3.25% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased on the last day by 18 million shares but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly over the next couple of days. In total, 124 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $30.63 billion.

On Dec 17, 2023, it was reported that Wedbush gave TSLA a "Outperform" grade with a "hold" action.

The stock lies the upper part of a very wide and falling trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break up at the top trend line at $257.12 will firstly indicate a slower falling rate, but may be the first sign of a trend shift.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -2.32% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $189.39 and $251.17 at the end of this 3-month period.

Tesla

The Tesla stock holds a sell signal from the short-term Moving Average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock giving a positive forecast for the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term Moving Average at approximately $248.18. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $235.25. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sell signal. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, and so far it has fallen -3.92%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

Tesla finds support from accumulated volume at $242.84 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

This stock has average movements during the day and with good trading volume, the risk is considered to be medium. During the last day, the stock moved $12.84 between high and low, or 5.20%. For the last week, the stock has had daily average volatility of 3.61%.

Tesla holds several negative signals and this should be a sell candidate, but due to the general chance for a turnaround situation it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development.Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Buy to a Hold/Accumulate candidate.
