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

CSX is in a very strong uptrend. In the last 52 weeks, CSX has been trading above the 200 day moving average for 96% of the time with an average daily volume of 9.8M shares being traded. For the medium term however, the 50 day moving average is indicating a trading range with a bearish downward bias. CSX's upward trend appears to be weakening but it is still not confirmed by the 200 SMA. Confidence in the buy the dips strategy seems to be waning. The 20 day moving average seems to be confirming the 50 SMA as it is also indicating a trading range with a bearish bias. Weakness in both the 20 and 50 SMA could indicate a temporary retracement of the uptrend or early stages of a major trend reversal. Objectively however, the long term trend is still up strongly and the higher probability trade would be to identify underlying strength in the 20 and 50 SMA and use it to time taking long/buy positions in CSX. Some good levels to consider entering long positions in CSX are at the 50 and 200 SMAs currently at 34.82 and 34.16 respectively.
