Seeking Alpha reported 2023-09-19 that Lucid Group stock has collapsed from its July 2023 highs, threatening to break below its critical June bottom. However, buyers have held the level firmly so far.

I assessed that such an opportunity could form as bears loaded more by the end of August, but they haven’t gained significant traction.
