Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "W.R. Grace & Co." (GRA)?

GRA is in a very strong downtrend. For the last 52 weeks, GRA has maintained to stay firmly below the 200 day moving average for 83% of the time. Rallies will be sold into until the downtrend reverses. The 50 day moving average is however indicating a medium term trading range with a bullish upside inclination. The 20 day moving average is however showing some signs of weakness as GRA has been trading below its 20 SMA for 57.5% of the time in the last 8 weeks. As GRA is in a downtrend characterized by the 200 SMA, currently at 69.54, the most likely scenario is that rallies will be sold into until the 200 SMA is convincingly taken out. Technically, there is very little reason to recommend a buy on this counter, although GRA may get a short term oversold bounce.
