TSLA Stock Price Hits Over 5-Month High

FXOpen

As today's TSLA chart shows, the stock price rose by approximately 6% during yesterday's trading, surpassing the $209 per share level. This marks the highest point since 24 January this year.

The price increase was driven by optimism related to the release of second-quarter car sales data. It is expected that Tesla might report a decline in sales, but not as significant as it could have been.

Analysts surveyed by Bloomberg estimate that the automaker will report sales of around 440,000 electric vehicles in the second quarter, which is 5.8% less than a year ago.

Factors contributing to the decline in sales include:
→ The suspected arson at the Tesla factory in Berlin;
→ Changes in the supply chain due to attacks in the Red Sea;
→ A reduction of approximately 10% in the company's workforce, announced by Musk in April.

However, the main factor could be competition and Tesla's aging model lineup. Can the TSLA price maintain its current high?

Technical analysis of today's TSLA chart shows that:
→ The price is still within the descending channel (marked in red), but has already broken upwards through its median (indicated by an arrow) – a sign of demand;
→ On 5 April, we mentioned that the TSLA price could rise to the psychological level of $150 per share. At that time, the market was oversold, with the price below the lower boundary of the descending channel. Since then, the price has formed an upward trajectory (shown in blue);
→ The price is above the psychological level of $200 per share.

Regardless of the report's outcome, for bulls, an important achievement will be the ability to stay in the upper half of the ascending channel and above the psychological level of $200 per share. This would boost their confidence ahead of Tesla's upcoming second-quarter corporate report, scheduled for 17 July.
