Tesla Share Price Outlook

Tesla’s 4-day winning streak has taken out the 1025.26 resistance and set it on the path towards 1134.35. If this new target gives way, 1307.51 becomes the new target for bulls.

On the flip side, a retracement dip below 1025.26 beings 900.00 into focus, the site of a previous high seen on 22 January. Below this level, 864.01 and 779.23 are additional downside targets that must be attained before 693.75 comes into the picture. The present sentiment favours dip-buying on any pullbacks, as the trend remains bullish.
