One way we can try to measure the level of fear in a given stock is through a technical analysis indicator called the Relative Strength Index, or RSI, which measures momentum on a scale of zero to 100. A stock is considered to be oversold if the RSI reading falls below 30.In trading on Tuesday, shares of MTR Gaming Group, Inc. ( MNTG) entered into oversold territory, hitting an RSI reading of 28.1, after changing hands as low as $4.84 per share. By comparison, the current RSI reading of the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) is 61.9. A bullish investor could look at MNTG's 28.1 RSI reading today 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.
