Short-Sale Set Up - Revisiting Tesla Motors (TSLA) 2/29/16

Published : February 29 2016 at 10:52 ET

Telsa Motors (TSLA) was one of our most successful short-sale set-ups in 2015. After an extended decline into the mid-February lows, the stock has rallied all the way up to its 50-day moving average at 196.92. This brings it back into a shortable position, using the 50-day line as a guide for a  tight upside stop. If the stock continues higher, then the 200-day at 231.68 would be the next reference point for potential overhead resistance.
