Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Valero Energy Corporation" (VLO)?

VLO is trading below its 200 day moving average and objectively, many will consider the long term trend to be down. Care must however be taken with this view as in its last 52 week trading history, it is noted that VLO has been range bound with a slight upward bias, having traded above the 200 SMA about 75% of the time. The 50 day moving average indicates a medium term trading range with a bullish upside inclination. The 20 day moving average, although still maintaining a bullish bias, is also trading in a range. Objectively, as long as VLO is trading below its 200 SMA, rallies will be sold into. The long term downtrend may accelerate downwards unless VLO rallies above the 200 SMA convincingly.
