Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "U.S. Physical Therapy, Inc." (USPH)?

USPH is in a long term trading range with a downward bias. This stock has traded about 51% of the time below the 200 day moving average in the last 52 weeks on daily average volume of 62.2K 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 bucking the bearish bias as price has traded above the 20 day SMA for 100% of the time during the last two months. Buyers have to be cautious as the longer and medium term trends are still not very strong. Objectively, dips should be bought but buyers have to be very selective in choosing a level to scale in e.g. near the 200 day SMA currently at 64.73. A range trading strategy rather than a trend following strategy, may be more appropriate in this scenario.
