    It's hard to tell without knowing how long ago did you make the switch. If in the past few days then a 'dance' is normal as google has to reprocess your website. So give is a week or two for things to get more stable. Also, the rank drop doesn't have to be related to https, it seems that google has been pretty aggressive in the past few weeks with algorithm update(s).

    If you did this few hours/days ago, it's perfectly normal for google to reindex all your links. You can use Google Console if you already have the site there. But if this has been done weeks/months, then something is definitely wrong with the ssl installation/niche.

    After redirect, temporary drop in rank/traffic is normal and it will recover. But if it exceeds more than 15 days or month, there might any problem or error with redirection. Check with SSL implementation and redirection.
