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

JCP is in a very strong downtrend. For the last 52 weeks, JCP has maintained to stay firmly below the 200 day moving average for 90% of the time. Rallies will be sold into until the downtrend reverses. 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 is also showing some signs of weakness as JCP has been trading below its 20 SMA for 77.5% of the time in the last 8 weeks. As JCP is in a downtrend characterized by the 200 SMA, currently at 5.37, 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 JCP may get a short term oversold bounce around here.
