What does the percentage point refer to? From where has the stock risen 58.63%?

1 Answer 1


Tesla has risen $211.78 during the time period demarcated by the two vertical lines.

The current price is $573.00 on 4/09/20

The earlier price is $361.22 on 3/18/20

$211.78 divided by $361.22 is 58.63% which is the gain for this time period and it is indicated on your chart.
