Technical Analysis

Tesla

Recently, Elon Musk and his Tesla have been heard more and more often. Firstly, he had a son. Secondly, he decided without permission of local authorities to open a plant in Fremont and in this received the support of US President. Now there is news about the launch of production at the factory in Shanghai, a customized version of Model 3 with an increased power reserve.

The company’s stock chart approached the resistance level of 840, but the prevailing positive background may help break this mark and update the historical maximum.

Dow Jones

One of the key US stock indices broke through the base of the “triple top” figure, which may indicate a return to the bearish trend.
