Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Cliffs Natural Resources Inc." (CLF)?

CLF is in a long term downtrend and it has traded about 57% of the time below the 200 day moving average in the last 52 weeks on daily average volume of 10.3M shares changing hands. The 50 day moving average indicates a medium term trading range with a bullish upside inclination. The 20 day moving average is very weak as CLF has been trading below its 20 SMA for 82.5% of the time in the last 8 weeks. CLF may be overdue for a small relief rally but it has to be noted that as CLF is still in a downtrend characterized by the 200 SMA, currently at 7.51, the most likely scenario is that rallies will be sold into until the 200 SMA is convincingly taken out.

The analyst consensus estimates for the 1 year price target for this stock is $6.88* (*source: Yahoo Finance).
