A bad week for Elon Musk gets seemingly worse, with shares in Tesla slumping around 17% since the high point at the start of the month. Musk offered to sell 10% of his Tesla stock in a Twitter poll over the weekend if supported – it was – leaving the Tesla CEO with around 17.5 million shares to offload. Including stock options, Musk owns around 23% of Tesla.

And Elon Musk was not the only, potential, seller of Tesla shares of late with his brother, and board member, Kimbal Musk selling a chunk of stock before his brother Elon announced the Twitter poll. According to an SEC filing last Friday. Kimbal Musk sold around $109 million of Tesla shares between $1,223 and $1,236 according to the filing, compared to a current spot price of around $1,030.

Tesla (TSLA) Shares Slump Further – Down 17% in Less Than a Week

Chart via TradingView.

The latest chart shows the steep sell-off in Tesla with the stock now below the nine-day moving average and just above $1,000. Lower down there is a gap on the charts between $910 and $944 and sellers may be attracted to this zone, despite the CCI indicator showing Tesla as heavily oversold.

Noted short-seller Michael Burry has also entered the Tesla fray again, suggesting that Elon Musk may be selling Tesla shares to cover personal loans taken out against his shares. The head of Scion Asset Management is not new to Tesla with an updated regulatory filing in August showing that Scion had puts on 1.1 million Tesla shares – an option to sell Tesla shares short – an increase from 800,000 shares at the end of March. Burry later told CNBC via email, in mid-October, that this position was just a trade and that he was never short ‘tens or hundreds of millions of any of these things, as reported’ with the options bets ‘extremely asymmetric’, and that the media was off by ‘orders of magnitude’. It is not known if Scion continues to hold all or any part of this position, if it is/was fully hedged, or at what strike price or expiration date the options were struck at.

While all of these actions, and subsequent stories and tweets, may well be a coincidence, what is not in doubt is that the share price has taken some or all of these incidents badly.

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter Trend Mode - Corrective Structure -Zigzag for wave (B) Position - Wave A of (B) Direction - Wave A is still in play Details -  As it appears the decline from 720’4 will most likely continue lower, we have adjusted the previous count. Price is now very likely in wave A of (B) against the 523’6 low. Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Since late May, wheat has declined over 14% from 720, indicating that the commodity has retraced approximately half of the impulse rally that occurred between March 11th and May 28th. In the medium term, the move from March 11th remains a positive correction of the long-term bearish trend that spanned from March 2022 to March 2024—a two-year trend.   Daily Chart Analysis: On the daily chart, wheat completed a bearish impulse wave from March 2022 at 523’6 in March 2024. Following this trend, a corrective phase was anticipated in the opposite direction. The impulse reaction that concluded wave (A) at the May 2024 peak is part of this larger bullish correction. Given that wave (A) is an impulse, we can expect at least a zigzag structure or possibly a double zigzag if the bullish correction extends over several months. Following the path of least resistance, a simple zigzag structure—wave (A)-(B)-(C)—is highly probable. Currently, the price is correcting wave (A) downwards in wave (B). Provided that the ongoing decline stays above 523’6, an extension higher is expected. However, wave (B) does not appear to be finished yet, as evident from the H4 chart.   H4 Chart Analysis: On the H4 chart, the price seems to be in wave A of (B), which is evolving into an impulse structure. We anticipate a typical zigzag structure for wave (B). The invalidation level at 523’6 should not be breached. If it is, the long-term bearish trend from March 2022 will likely resume, confirming that the bullish correction from March 2024 has concluded.   Summary: Wheat has seen a significant decline since late May, retracing half of its recent impulse rally. The medium-term trend from March 11th remains a positive correction within the context of a long-term bearish trend that lasted two years. On the daily chart, the completion of the bearish impulse wave in March 2024 was followed by a bullish correction, which is currently in wave (B) of a zigzag structure. The H4 chart suggests that wave A of (B) is forming an impulse structure, with expectations of a typical zigzag correction.   Traders should monitor the key level of 523’6. If this level holds, the bullish correction is likely to continue with a potential extension higher. However, a breach below 523’6 would invalidate this scenario, signaling a continuation of the long-term bearish trend.  Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
