PREMIUM: A Matter of Proportion

This morning, I was contemplating one of the hottest stocks in history, Tesla, and wondering if there was any way to anticipate its peak in this current move.

My approach to this was pretty simple: I was focusing on the range established from major peaks (red circles) to their retracements (green circle). In particular, I wanted to calculate how much of a “burst” there would be out of its most recent range if it mimicked the burst that had taken place during the previous range.
