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

JCP is in a long term downtrend and it has traded about 65% of the time below the 200 day moving average in the last 52 weeks on daily average volume of 19.1M shares changing hands. 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 very weak as JCP has been trading below its 20 SMA for 92.5% of the time in the last 8 weeks. JCP may be overdue for a small relief rally but it has to be noted that as JCP is still in a downtrend characterized by the 200 SMA, currently at 8.64, the most likely scenario is that rallies will be sold into until the 200 SMA is convincingly taken out.
