Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Dow Chemical Company (The)" (DOW)?

DOW is in a very strong uptrend. In the last 52 weeks, DOW has been trading above the 200 day moving average for 100% of the time with an average daily volume of 5.4M shares being traded. The 50 day moving average, currently at 64.51, although still maintaining a bullish inclination, is however exhibiting characteristics of a medium term trading range. As the dominant long term trend is still up strongly, the high probability trade is still buying the dips. The 20 day moving average, although in a trading range, generally confirms this view as the underlying strength in DOW still has a bullish bias with price maintaining above the 20 SMA for 57.5% of the time in the last two months of trading. Traders who are thinking of going long DOW shares should consider patiently waiting for price to be near the 50 or 200 SMAs, currently at 64.51 and 61.71 respectively.
