The afternoon has been turbulent on Wall Street. Tesla has recovered from some of the sharp fall in early trade.
An hour and a half into the trading day, the situation is completely different than just one hour ago. Technology-heavy Nasdaq was at worst down close to four percent, but falls by 17 “only” just over one percent.
The electric car manufacturer Tesla has been in focus on Tuesday after the company started the week down more than eight percent. On the worst Tuesday, the stock was down more than twelve percent, but now the picture is completely different.
After an hour and a half of trading, the Tesla share is down 2.38 percent to 697.53 points.
In less than a month, the stock has thus fallen 21 percent from the top listing of 883.09 dollars, which took place on 26 January.
At the time of writing, the entire upswing the company has had this year has evaporated.
This is the situation on the leading indices:
- The S&P 500 falls 0.32 percent
- Nasdaq is down 1.08 percent
- The Dow Jones is down 0.20 percent
