Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "State Auto Financial Corporation" (STFC)?

STFC is in a very strong uptrend. In the last 52 weeks, STFC has been trading above the 200 day moving average for 83% of the time with an average daily volume of 44.1K shares being traded. For the medium term however, the 50 day moving average is indicating a trading range with a bearish downward bias. STFC'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. The 20 day moving average seems to be confirming the 50 SMA as it is also indicating a trading range with a bearish bias. Weakness in both the 20 and 50 SMA could indicate a temporary retracement of the uptrend or early stages of a major trend reversal. Objectively however, the long term trend is still up strongly and the higher probability trade would be to identify underlying strength in the 20 and 50 SMA and use it to time taking long/buy positions in STFC. A good level to consider entering a long position in STFC is near the 200 SMA currently at 25.31.
