Technical Analysis


Since the beginning of November, Tesla has been trading in a downward channel. Currently, it is testing its upper border.

If the stock price crosses the resistance level of $1100 upwards, that may be the beginning of a new mid-term uptrend. In the opposite scenario, it may be deflected to get to the bottom of the channel again.


Brent is now approaching $80. That breaks the two-month downtrend and sets a new upward trajectory.


This pair has lost a bit of bullish momentum, but the overall trend is still pointing upwards.
