To figure out what stocks are in oversold territory, it is necessary to measure the Relative Strength Index or RSI. The measurement was created by Welles Wilder, Jr. This oscillator is regularly used within the investment community as watch signals for stocks; it can tell an investor when things are normal or when changes are about to come for the stocks.
The RSI movies up or down depending on the stock price between zero and 100. When the RSI is over 70, it is said to be overbought; when it is under 30, it is thought to be oversold.
