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.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
    • Market data to trade the week of 26 September: Nasdaq; NXT From the economic calendar next week IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph, picks up on a short trade on the Nasdaq around US inflation data. Meanwhile, despite another light week of corporate data, Axel picks out the chart of Next plc (NXT) as an interesting trade to think about.
