In trading on Tuesday, shares of the SPDRS&PGlobal Infrastructure ETF (GII) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $48.69 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 SPDRS&PGlobal Infrastructure, the RSI reading has hit 29.9 — by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 34.9.
A bullish investor could look at GII's 29.9 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.
