PG is in a very strong uptrend. In the last 52 weeks, PG has been trading above the 200 day moving average for 86% of the time with an average daily volume of 9.4M shares being traded. For the medium term however, the 50 day moving average is indicating a trading range with a bearish downward bias. PG's upward trend appears to be weakening but it is still not confirmed by the 200 SMA. Confidence in the buy the dips strategy seems to be waning. Barring some weakness in the 50 SMA, the 20 day moving average is however bucking the medium term trend as price has been trading above the 20 SMA for 86% of time for the last two months.Objectively, PG's primary trend is still up meaning the higher probability strategy is to still buy dips. Timing and the buy-in price are very critical at this juncture in order to secure profits. Traders who are thinking of going long PG shares should consider patiently waiting for price to be near the 50 or 200 SMAs, currently at 85.97 and 85.39 respectively.
