Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "J.C. Penney Company, Inc. Holding Company" (JCP)?

JCP manages to stay above the 200 day moving average in spite of having stayed firmly below the 200 SMA for 87% of the time in the last 52 weeks. Objectively, the long term trend is up and information from the lower level moving averages will give clues if this trend has legs. In the medium term, the 50 day moving average for JCP is very bullish, indicating good swing trading opportunities for longs. The 20 day moving average indicates JCP is in a trading range with a bearish downtrend bias. The concern is whether the longer term trend, which has still not proven itself as a strong sustainable uptrend, can keep on going up. Nimble traders can buy dips as long as price remains in an uptrend above the 200 and 50 SMA.
