NIO stock news: Do US traders care about Singapore listing?
Initially, Nio was not among the first group of companies named for possible delisting. most prominent was DIDI, which had listed in New York in a high-profile IPO. This has put many Chinese tech stocks on notice and investors have taken a very cautious view of the sector. However, the SEC added NIO to its list last week, which led to an immediate wave of selling pressure on the stock.
NIO had previously listed in Hong Kong to offset any potential delisting. This was probably done once the initial names were released. NIO then followed up last week by seeking and obtaining preliminary approval to list on the Singapore Stock Exchange. Hong Kong is considered the main roster with Singapore as the secondary roster. However, NIO has a strong US-based retail customer base. Or rather it was, many may have already sold. Many U.S. retail customers will not have access to trade on the Hong Kong or Singapore exchanges and many may not want it regardless of access.
NIO stock was already under pressure before this radiation potential. The number of deliveries in April had fallen nearly 50% from March as the Chinese lockdown hit supply and delivery. Nio Inc. delivered 5,074 vehicles in April compared to 9,985 in March. Other Chinese electric vehicle makers XPeng (XPEV) and LiAuto reported similar monthly delivery drops for the same reason.
NIO Stock Forecast: Relentless Downtrend Will Continue
$13.01 appears to be the target for NIO shares as the newest low and so small support. Considering the bottom, it should break. NIO stock price is strongly bearish with $23.94 being the bullish pivot, so some distance away. The decline in RSI and IMF reinforces sentiment and looks overwhelmingly negative. Breaking $13 will bring $10 as an obvious target with a gap to close down to $9.38.
