So, NASDAQ publishes short interest data twice a month, but they still haven't published NOK's November numbers. Why can I not find more current short interest data?
I'd love to see a graph depicting the combined short interest of NOK and NOK1V over time, day by day or week by week. You know of any place I can get that? If that isn't available, do you know why not?

I don't know of any one that has such a graph, it would be nice though. The only places I could think of are pay sites like stockcharts.com. They probably have enough flexibility that you could build the graph yourself. Maybe, that's really just a shot in the dark.
The regulations on reporting short interests aren't that restrictive. So NASDAQ just gets reports that way. The europeans require much more frequent updates however, and I think they update at least once a week, maybe even every other day. I don't have the time to look for it right now, but I'll try to find a link for you.
Oh, and Yahoo Finance isn't so great with their calculations sometimes. You always need to double check their figures, just an fyi.

LikeWaah, okay, hope you find something. I'll check out the European side.
Thanks for the heads up on Yahoo finance. I don't rely on Yahoo finance myself. It's just the first site that Google listed including short interest on NOK. For financial data and statistics I rely on my online stock broker (optionsXpress).
I have a decent understanding of the terminology and laws that apply in the finance world, but I don't invest purely on "technicals". I am interested in the policies and politics of the tech world and of course the tech markets. I have direct ties to people that work at many of the major players, including Nokia and Microsoft. These are the things I base my investing decisions on... and of course my own understanding of technology, particularly software, although I'm more the operating systems guy than the enterprise software or web developer.

Short positions in Helsinki (Look for Nokia Ojy)
I bookmarked it because it can be a pita to find if you don't know what to look for. Someone else posted it and I'm just sharing it. Yeah, Yahoo caught me once, and I've just stopped relying on it since, haha.
Having a background in the industry you are investing in is important. It really helps you filter out the BS and stick to things that actually have a hope of becoming reality. I also find keeping a long term outlook helps keep my sanity. Otherwise the volatility in NOK would indeed drive me wild.

Fairly big move today! Already reported by WP Central: Nokia rising: stock breaks through $4 a share upon news of strong demand | Windows Phone Central
I am hoping it closes above $4.00 today. If we can break $4.25 this week, it would be huge! I think it's more realistic to be in a range of $3.90 - $4.10 for the week, unless some news about sales is reported.

The close at $4.20 was totally unexpected to me, but you can bet I am happy!
I'm not sure what to make of this run up. I do expect some profit taking/consolidation, especially as there are a bunch of negative pieces coming out today about Nokia. A lot of it is old news though, if you have been following NOK at all this past quarter.
I really, really, really can't wait until Q4 2012 results are released though. If they turn a profit, I am going to treat myself.

I expected a pull back today, but was pleasantly surprised at it holding. In fact, it even went up a penny!
Could be related to news of China Mobile offering a subsidy for the Lumia 920T.
Oh! Also, the 50SMA ($3.08) is right below the 200SMA ($3.09). This means, barring a crazy move downwards, we should see the 50SMA cross the 200SMA tomorrow, which is a generally bullish signal in TA. Of course, technical traders are going to look for confirmation before piling in, but I see this as a positive catalyst for NOK. We may see ~$4.50 by the end of the year.

Down to $3.99 today, on a down day. Not too worried about this dip, but if you have been looking for a buy opportunity, this is a good one!
Still many positive news for NOK, 02 deal, 360buy.com deal, and technically speaking, the 50SMA has just crossed over the 200SMA -- a Golden Cross.

On a side note, I'm wondering what led Nokia to release sales numbers early. Anyone have any ideas?
I'm looking forward to Q1 of 2013 which will include sales in China.

Guys/Girls. this is not a easy road, yes NOK closed out at $4.49 NOK has done all the right things to keep the cash flowing rather than bleeding out. it's well run company. even when the stock tanked Nokia still had a hefty 6 billion on the back burner. NOK is not a short term stock. this is a 24-32 month stock meaning that in that time frame the stock should grow steadily. with new products coming out in a few months with the deals they have in India and in China they are in a very good position. more so in China than anywhere else. this year we will see Nokia high end and mid to lower end devices on all US carriers. but for me it's not the US market that I'm looking at for this stock rather it's China and India. that is where it's going to make or break Nokia. currently all things are pointing in the right direction. so yes if you have some extra cash the stock is still cheap at under 5 bucks a share. I would buy for the long the haul 24--32 months.

It will climb again, but will require good news out of U.S. and Chinese markets to climb over $5. At this point we have neither, and those are the two biggest markets.

Asha is apparently a huge help in keeping Nokia's head above water, but neither Asha or Lumia sales could compensate for the crash and burn of Symbian (sales volume is now almost zero). Both Asha and Lumia are bringing in money, just not as much as Symbian once did.
