Shares of Tesla Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203558040/composite TSLA +1.75% tanked 3.8% toward a one-month low, which some technicians would say puts them on track to enter their third bear market this year. Many on Wall Street define a bear market as a decline of at least 20% from a recent bull market closing peak, and some say that bear market would end after a 20% rally off the subsequent low. Tesla's stock is currently trading 20.7% below its Nov. 4 record close of $1,229.91, and a bear market would become official to some technicians with a close at or below $983.92. The electric vehicle market leader's stock selloff has been highlighted by share sales by Chief Executive Elon Musk, who has sold roughly $11 billion worth of stock over the past month.
