Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Freeport-McMoran Copper & Gold, Inc." (FCX)?

FCX is in a long term trading range with an upward bias. The last 52 weeks has seen this stock maintain an upward swing with about 70% of the time spent trading above the 200 day moving average. 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 has been quite bullish with price trading above the 20 SMA for 90% of the time during the last two months. FCX may strengthen further and breakout into a strong long term trend or fall back into the trading range. The bearish bias of the 50 SMA is of concern, which may indicate weakness which starts off a trend reversal. Objectively however, the high probability trade is to still buy dips but selectively at strong support areas like the 200 SMA at 13.46.
