Next Lucid (LCID) levels to watch as stock caught in downtrend limbo

Next Lucid (LCID) levels to watch as stock caught in downtrend limbo

Electric vehicle (EV) sales are accelerating across the globe, racing to a future where EVs will overtake standard gas and diesel-powered vehicles. The ‘green revolution’ requires this change to occur in the next decade to help in the reduction of carbon emissions.   

Furthermore, while states across the US slowly phase-out combustion engines, the total addressable markets (TAM) for firms like Lucid (NASDAQ: LCID) continues to grow. Meanwhile, LCID shares have been caught in the limbo of a downtrend, namely, down 63.38% year-to-date (YTD). 

Despite the price action, on September 27, Cantor Fitzgerald started coverage of LCID shares, giving them an overweight rating with a $23 price target, believing that Lucid’s offer of greater efficiency, longer range, faster charging, and more space relative to its peers will enable the firm to carve a big piece of the EV market for itself.   

Equally important, the EV manufacturer recently went head-to-head with its biggest rival, Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) in an Edmunds comparison, and came out of the fight with accolades. 

LCID chart and analysis

LCID is an average performer in the Automobile industry, outperforming 51% of 33 stocks in the same industry. With both the short-term and long-term trends negative and the stock trading below all moving averages, LCID remains near the bottom of its 52-week range. 

Technical analysis shows the first support pivot point at the $14.23 level while the second is at $14.23, on the downside. If these levels are breached, the next support level could be at $13.52, the stock’s one-month low. 

To the upside, a breach above the 18-day moving average at $15.11 could indicate the shares could test the 10-day MACD oscillator at $15.39.

With the catalyst for the firm in the form of positive coverage and booming EV sales, the stock could turn around its fortune. 

Supply chain issues, inflation, and interest rates will play a major role in the price action, but the above levels could potentially give traders a taste of how the stock moves while waiting for more positive news for the EV sector.
