Please take a look at the one-year chart of Nokia below with added notations:

Nokia shot higher in September and continued its runup until the end of the year. Like the rest of the market, the stock sold off in January and has recovered since February.

Nokia has now made it back to its 52-week high resistance that sits near $8.20. Investors that already own the stock should consider raising protective stops, while those not already in the stock should wait for a break to new highs before considering a purchase.
