In trading on Thursday, shares of the Daily FTSE China Bear 3X Shares ETF (YANG) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $20.48 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.
