12:02 EDTTSLATesla hits fresh life high, and then turns lower
The shares have gone negative on the day after hitting a high of $288 earlier in the session, which is a fresh life high for the stock. That high did not hold for long, with price now at $281.92. A look at a 5-day chart shows what is a relatively characteristic behavior for the shares. It tends to advance by gaps, consolidates, and then gaps higher the following session and in the process creates bear traps. On a longer-term time frame it would take a breakdown below the prior session gap at the $275 area for the shares to be in any sort of real technical trouble. Resistance is at $284.12, the prior day close.
