Tesla Gap Higher on Supercomputer Boost

Tesla's share price gapped higher on Monday after investment bank, Morgan Stanely said Tesla’s supercomputer, known as Dojo had the potential to boost its market cap by $600 billion.

Dojo's production began in July, and Tesla plans to invest over $1 billion in it by next year. The supercomputer could create new markets beyond vehicle sales, particularly in applications where real-time visual decision-making is crucial.

Morgan Stanley upgraded Tesla to "overweight" and raised their 12-18 month target by 60% to $400, projecting a market cap of around $1.39 trillion, compared to the current value of about $789 billion.

Technical outlook

Monday’s price gap has given the stock a boost of bullish momentum, aligning with the ascending channel that has been in place since mid-August.

On the 4hr candle chart (below), we can see that price action following Monday’s gap has seen the shares consolidate within a compact triangular bull flag pattern.

This pattern of bullish consolidation suggests the likelihood of a short-term trend continuation, hinting at the possibility of prices moving higher and eventually closing the significant negative gap that emerged on July 20th following the release of Tesla's Q2 results.

Risk management

Traders looking to take a long position in Tesla could enter on a breakout from the small bull flag which has formed on the 4hr candle chart.

A logical area for stop placement is below the bull flag low, while a reasonable area for initial profit targets could be the top of the July 20th gap.
