Technical Analysis


On December 21 this year, the company’s shares will be included in the S&P 500 index. This means that the company will receive support, including large investment funds. Against this background, Tesla’s capitalization has broken above the value of $400 billion.

It is possible that the positive trend of the shares will continue to the level of 500, the previously set target by Deutsche Bank.


The currency pair has formed a head and shoulders reversal pattern. We are waiting for quotes to break through the upward support line.


The asset is consolidating above the support level of 137.600. We expect an upward trend to activate.
