Tesla’s share price in decline ahead of earning’s call

Despite analysts predicting a great performance this week, the share price continues to look lacklustre.

Most analysts believe that Tesla is on a solid footing for its fourth quarter (Q4) 2021 earnings call on January 26th, yet the share price has been in decline since the beginning of the year and is fast approaching its December low at $886.

The company was not only the best-selling electric vehicle brand in Europe in 2021, but also doesn’t seem to have been caught out as badly as other carmakers by the automobile industry's chip shortage during the pandemic. It successfully pivoted its production capabilities whilst opening two new factories and reported record deliveries for its electric vehicles. Yet, since the beginning of January the share price has given back over 20% of last year’s gains, which is why a closer look at the technical picture might be of interest to investors.

Ever since this year’s first day of trading and Tesla’s strong rise to $1212, close to last year’s November peak at $1247, the share price has been drifting lower towards the January 2021 high at $900 and the December trough at $886. A fall through the latter would put the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $810 on the cards.

Not too far below this the April 2021 high and 55-week SMA offer potential support at $794 to $786. This support area should withstand the first test, if probed. Should the car company exceed analysts’ expectations during this week’s earnings call, and if this isn’t already priced into its share price, a rise back to the $979 to $1000 region may well ensue. It contains the November and early January lows as well as psychological resistance.

From a technical perspective Tesla would need to extend it gains above the last swing- and mid-January high at $1115 to reignite its uptrend.

    • Charting the Markets: 05 June Indices remain bid amid risk-on sentiment. EUR/USD, GBP/USD resume their descents on greenback strength while EUR/GBP rallies. And Gold prices fall back and oil prices rally, while live cattle prices sit at a record high.

    • Gold prices fall back and oil prices rally, while live cattle prices sit at a record high Gold has dropped back at the start of the week, while oil prices have been given a lift by a fresh OPEC production cut. Meanwhile, live cattle prices have made further headway. Source: Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 05 June 2023  Gold renews Friday’s declines While stocks rallied on Friday following the jobs report, gold prices went sharply into reverse. This has continued this morning, with the price nearing the 100-day SMA once again. Last week saw the price hold above the 100-day SMA and above the $1930 support zone. A move below $1930 would mark an interesting development, putting the price below the 100-day SMA for the first time since November. This might then open the way to the 200-day SMA, and then down towards $1800. A revival needs to clear short-term resistance around $1985, and then on above the 50-day SMA ($1991), to suggest that the uptrend has been revived. Source: ProRealTime WTI rallies following production cut Oil prices rallied on Thursday and Friday in expectation of an OPEC production cut. The organisation duly delivered, and prices gapped higher over the weekend. Further gains target the late May high around $74.50, and then on to the 50- and 100-day SMAs. The last production cut prompted a rally to the 200-day SMA before it faltered. Buyers will be hoping that the price can sustain the forward momentum and move on to clear the 200-day SMA this time. Conversely, sellers will be watching for a turn lower, ideally below the 100-day SMA, that will leave the bearish view intact.

Clearly, bullish momentum is still very strong, but the price now looks overextended from the 50-day SMA. Some short-term consolidation may well occur, but it is notable that weakness in March and May both stabilised above the 100-day SMA. Trendline support from the March lows will need to be breached if sellers are to gain traction in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime
