Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Calpine Corporation" (CPN)?

CPN is in a long term trading range with a downward bias. This stock has traded about 73% of the time below the 200 day moving average in the last 52 weeks on daily average volume of 5.5M 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 also biased to the bullish side although the last two months have been in a trading range. Although the medium term moving averages generally favor the longs, buyers still have to tread carefully as the longer term uptrend is still not very convincing. Objectively, dips should still be bought but buyers have to be very selective in choosing a level to scale in for e.g. near the 200 SMA currently at 12.05.
