ACAD is in a long term trading range with an upward bias. The last 52 weeks has seen this stock maintain an upward swing with about 64% of the time spent trading above the 200 day moving average. 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 also in a trading range with a similar bearish downside bias. These may be early indications of a trend reversal but it is still too early to confirm. The long term trend remains up and the higher probability trade is to selectively buy the dips.
