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

Although FCX is currently trading below its 200 day moving average, it is prudent to note that in the last 52 weeks, FCX has been trading above the 200 day moving average for 92% of the time with an average daily volume of 25.3M shares changing hands. This could portend a sustained reversal in trend, or just a slight bump in the road prior to resuming its bullish bias.The 50 day moving average indicates a medium term trading range with a bullish upside inclination. The 20 day moving average is however on a slight bearish bias, otherwise, it is also indicating range bound trading.
