After a recent consolidation along its 20 day moving average, Tesla (TSLA) closed at a new all-time high today.
As you can see from the daily and weekly charts, the runaway move started in April when TSLA broke out above the $40 level on large volume (over 7 times its daily avg. volume).

As of today, TSLA is up over 165% from its April 1 closing price.
