ETF Channel Staff - Friday, September 23, 11:57 AMIn trading on Friday, shares of the BLOK ETF (BLOK) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $18.20 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 BLOK, the RSI reading has hit 29.3 — by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 29.8.
A bullish investor could look at BLOK's 29.3 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), BLOK's low point in its 52 week range is $17.90 per share, with $64.91 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $18.37. BLOK shares are currently trading off about 2.7% on the day.
