TSLA Breakdown, Price Targets

TSLA (Tesla Inc.) has broken down below this uptrend line after recently putting in a divergent high (negative divergences). As there has been quite a bit of interest in the stock recently, including this chart & short entry (via put options) posted by @shambo just over a week ago, I figured that I would share my thoughts on the stock, including some price targets. The daily chart below outlines my  likely scenario for the stock with the first target/support level coming up soon around the 327.40ish level, where a reaction is likely if/when that level is reached.

Shorting TSLA

TSLA daily Sept 23rd My notes & thoughts on TSLA virtually mirror the previous short trade on TSLA, just over a year ago today (which, fortunately, was the only other time I shorted this beast of a stock).

The basis [...]
