TSLA Analysis: Price Recovers after Disastrous Report


We previously wrote that lower vehicle deliveries could lower TSLA's stock price.

And as it became known on Tuesday, Tesla, led by Elon Musk, delivered just 386,810 cars in the first three months of 2024 - 14% below analysts' forecasts, according to Bloomberg. As a result, Tesla shares fell 4.9% that day, extending their 2024 decline to 33%, the worst performance in the Nasdaq 100 Index.

What is the market outlook?

Bullish arguments:
→ After a strong disappointment on Tuesday, the price of TSLA showed signs of stability on Wednesday and Thursday. Since these were bullish candles, and the market was recovering despite the non-bearish gap on Tuesday, this can be interpreted as a sign of demand.
→ From the point of view of technical analysis, the market is supported by the lower border of the downward channel (shown in red). The price forms rebounds from this border, as shown by the arrows.
→ Bloomberg writes about a decrease in the number of short positions after the report on Tuesday. This could be a sign that short position holders do not see any further decline in the price of TSLA and are taking profits.

Bearish arguments:
→ TSLA price is still in the lower half of the downward channel, despite the bullish sentiment in the stock market.
→ Resistance may come from the level of USD 183 per share and the median line of the descending channel.

If the bears continue to dominate, the price of TSLA could fall towards the psychological level of USD 150 per share. But the balance of sentiment may be changed by the release of Tesla’s first-quarter reports, scheduled for April 17.
