Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc." (ACAD)?

ACAD is in a long term trading range with a downward bias. This stock has traded about 60% of the time below the 200 day moving average in the last 52 weeks on daily average volume of 3.3M shares changing hands. For the medium term, the 50 day moving average is generally in a trading range with a bearish downward bias. The 20 day moving average is slightly bullish and is also in a trading range. Buyers have to be cautious as the longer and medium term uptrends are still not very convincing. Objectively however, dips should still be bought but buyers have to be very selective in choosing a level to scale in e.g. near the 200 day SMA currently at 30.94. A range trading strategy rather than a trend following strategy, may be more appropriate in this scenario.
