Take a look at the 1-year chart of CAR below with added notations:


Chart of CAR provided by TradingView

CAR had a great start to 2021, but the stock has recently hit a wall at the $90 level (red). That barrier is also preventing the stock from hitting new 52-week highs. A solid close above that $90 mark should lead to much higher prices for the stock.

CAR has a 52-week resistance at $90. The possible long position on the stock would be on a breakout above that level with a protective stop placed under it.
