Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Merck & Company, Inc." (MRK)?

MRK is in a long term trading range with an upward bias. The last 52 weeks has seen this stock maintain an upward swing with about 78% of the time spent trading above the 200 day moving average. The 50 day moving average also indicates range bound trading but with a general bullish upside bias. The 20 day moving average is also in a trading range but however it has a bearish downside bias. These may be early indications of a trend reversal but it is still too early to confirm. The long term trend remains up and the higher probability trade is to selectively buy the dips. A successful test of the 200 SMA currently near 59.66 would be a good place to start scaling in a long position.
