Tesla’s share price (TSLA) has had a bumpy ride of late, falling by some 40% from its early January high at $1,212.30 but rallying by close to 50% from its $691.69 February low as Elon Musk opened his delayed €5 billion ‘Gigafactory’ near Berlin earlier this week.

The plant was delayed by eight months following local authority licensing problems but now constitutes Tesla’s first European hub and represents the biggest investment in a German car plant in decades. At full capacity, the factory will produce half a million cars annually, more than the 450,000 electric vehicles that German rival Volkswagen sold globally in 2021. It will also produce batteries at an annual rate of 50 gigawatt hours (GWh), more than any other German plant.

Tesla has built millions of electric cars while rapidly bringing down production costs. The company seems to be on track to release its full self-driving computer (FSD) which is supposed to be “10 times safer than manual via massive fleet learning and will enable your car to make money for you when you aren’t using it,” before year-end.

With the production of the CyberTruck and Semi to begin next year, Tesla is well on its way to reach its 20 million vehicle target by 2030. Despite the company’s massive growth, the electric automaker currently accounts for just around 1% of the global vehicle market. The limiting factor for Tesla, and all electric car manufacturers for that matter, are the bottlenecks in the mining of rare earth minerals such as cobalt, copper, lithium and nickel which are required for battery production.

Where to next for the Tesla share price?

Tesla stock has seen a stratospheric surge in its share price by some +35% over the past eight straight days and is now trading at overbought levels last seen in early January on the 9-day Relative Strength Index (RSI).

At least a short-term retracement lower may soon be seen but it is to be viewed as an opportunity to enter a long trade since the recent bullish reversal likley has further to go.

The area between the February high at $947.35 and the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at $909.79 represents a support area, together with the December trough and early March high at $889.31 to $886.25.

While the next lower - the 200-day SMA at $859.65 - underpins, the share price is expected to continue its ascent towards the 2021 to 2022 resistance line at $1,164 and eventually to the November and January peaks at $1,212.30 to $1,247.34 and above.

This is because the decline from the share’s all-time high at $1,247.34 looks to be corrective since it can be sub-divided into three distinct Elliott waves - A, B, and C - meaning the long-term uptrend is intact and new all-time highs are likely to be hit this year.

    • DCA is my long term investment strategy. As for copy trading, i was using Bybit and Bitget initially but switched completely to the latter cex cos it gives me more win rates. Its prolly because they have more elite traders than the former yah.
    • I would say Pele remains the undisputable Greatest Of All Time yah.
    • Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Holds the High Ground as Binance Deals with Client Exodus Nov 28, 2023 7:46 PM +02:00 Zain Vawda, DailyFX Analyst BITCOIN, CRYPTO KEY POINTS: Bitcoin Trades Just Above the $38k Mark. Are We Finally Going to Print a Daily Close Above the Resistance Level with an Eye on the $40k Handle? Binance Users Pull $1 Billion Following the Exit of CEO Changpeng Zhao. BNB Token Struggles and Hovers Near Recent Lows. Can the Exchange Survive Moving Forward?   Bitcoin continues to threaten the $38k mark but remains unable to find acceptance above the key level. The reason the world’s largest cryptocurrency has held onto its gains may have to do with an increase in capital inflow from institutional investors over the past week, per a report by CoinShares. There has also been a notable surge in demand for digital assets of late with the past week being the 9th consecutive week of positive inflows to the market. A lot of this could still be down to anticipation of the spot Bitcoin ETF and the halving event next year. Bitcoin in particular saw inflows of around $312 million over the past week with the yearly total now at around the $1.5 billion mark as investor confidence appears to be on the rise. There has also been a notable shift over the last 18 months with the number of Hodlers growing exponentially as well.

This has left the world of crypto exchanges reeling even if Cryptocurrencies themselves have enjoyed a renaissance in Q4. Binance faced questions last week about its ability to continue given the size of the fines imposed on the exchange which totaled $4.3 billion. As news filtered through the exchange saw outflows of around the $1 billion mark in the 24 hours post Zhao’s departure being announced. If this continues it could pose a serious risk to the exchange and may be worth monitoring in the days ahead. The BNB token as well faced challenges in the aftermath as it fell as much as 8% following Zhao’s announcement. The exchange has also lost a significant amount of market share from zero-fee crypto trading since the removal of this lucrative incentive. Binance does not face the same charges as FTX but are we about to witness another titan of the industry disappear into the doldrums? BNB Daily Chart, November 28, 2023 Source: TradingView
