Aside from risk aversion stemming from the coronavirus pandemic, the stock was hit hard by downgrades to its price target. An analyst from Morgan Stanley, Adam Jonas, downgraded his 1-year price target for Tesla share price. It was initially set at $500 but given how the coronavirus has impacted Europe, he revised it to $480.

Tesla Share Price Outlook

On the weekly time frame, we can see that Tesla share price is already testing support at the Fib levels (when you draw the Fibonacci retracement tool from the low of June 3, 2019 to the high of February 3, 2020). Reversal candles around 483.00 to 575.00 could mean that the stock may soon trade higher to its recent highs at 968.99.

On the other hand, if the sell-off continues, the Tesla share price could fall to its near-term support at 360.00. This price offers a confluence of support with: the rising trend line (from connecting the lows of June 3, August 19, and September 30), previous highs (from January 2018 to December 2018), and the SMAs (100 and 200).More content
