Tesla TSLA Revs Up with a Breakout – Level Planning

Jun 8, 2015: 2:44 PM CST

Tesla (TSLA) stock broke key resistance today, surging into open air for a possible breakout play.

However, shares first must break the key price resistance as noted in today’s post.

Let’s chart the breakout and see the current target – and breakout – levels for trading Tesla.

Here’s the Weekly Chart for perspective:

After spending the beginning of 2015 in a downtrend and under the 50 week EMA, Tesla shares reversed on a clear positive momentum divergence off $180.00 to break above $200 (back above the 50 week EMA0 into a new uptrend.

Note the divergence into support and the green highlighted breakout event that sent shares soaring.

The upside “Open Air” target was the $260.00 prior high where we find the stock at the moment.

Here’s the Daily Chart for a closer look:

We can see the Positive Momentum Divergence at the beginning of 2015 and the strong reversal that took price back above $200 toward the current $260.00 per share price target.

Note today’s breakout above the 61.8% Fibonacci Retracement – and the $250 level – as drawn.

In today’s session, price already moved up away from $250.00 toward the $260.00 target.

It’s at this point that we’ll plan future trades in Tesla.

Note the two yellow highlights – prior price highs from 2014 – and the “Open Air” pocket above $265.

Should buyers continue revving price higher, look for a retest of the $290 or even $300 per share targets.

Otherwise, look to be neutral between the $250 and $260 current zone.

Tesla would be a Bull Trap breakdown bearish candidate on a return under $250 from here.

Note these levels and trade accordingly!

    Trading in my view is all about trading within the plan, if we do that correctly then we will always find positive results, if we are unable to do it then we will find results really tough to come. At the moment I am getting terrific results with OctaFX broker, as they have very fine cTrader platform where there is upgraded charting system which enables me to work well and seek the right opportunities to get profits without any major risk.

    I think it is pretty important that we focus on right planning since that is where we can get a lot of help, if we are not doing right planning then we can be in serious trouble over many things. I am very lucky that I have got a first class broker like OctaFX since with them, I am able to get so many benefits especially with daily market news and analysis service, it is easy to follow yet brings great results and topping is this is free too.
