In trading on Thursday, shares of the Active U.S. Real Estate Fund ETF (PSR) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $56.54 per share. We define oversold territory using the Relative Strength Index, or RSI, which is a technical analysis indicator used to measure momentum on a scale of zero to 100. A stock is considered to be oversold if the RSI reading falls below 30.
In the case of Active U.S. Real Estate Fund, the RSI reading has hit 29.8 — by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 45.1.
A bullish investor could look at PSR's 29.8 reading as a sign that the recent heavy selling is in the process of exhausting itself, and begin to look for entry point opportunities on the buy side.
Looking at a chart of one year performance (below), PSR's low point in its 52 week range is $53.58 per share, with $68.12 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $56.78. Active U.S. Real Estate Fund shares are currently trading down about 1.8% on the day.
