Relative strength index (RSI)


    The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used to indicate when market conditions are overbought or oversold. When these signals occur, a trader can use them to look for pullbacks or reversals.

    It is calculated by averaging the number of up and down periods, as a way of showing the underlying relative strength.

    When the RSI reaches 30, it signals an “oversold” market
