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

ACHN is in a very strong downtrend. For the last 52 weeks, ACHN has maintained to stay firmly below the 200 day moving average for 83% of the time. Rallies will be sold into until the downtrend reverses. 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 showing some signs of weakness as ACHN has been trading below its 20 SMA for 77.5% of the time in the last 8 weeks. As ACHN is in a downtrend characterized by the 200 SMA, currently at 4.16, the most likely scenario is that rallies will be sold into until the 200 SMA is convincingly taken out. Technically, there is very little reason to recommend a buy on this counter, although ACHN may get a short term oversold bounce around here.
