A A A

In trading on Friday, shares of the iShares MSCI EMU ETF (Symbol: EZU) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $39.58 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 iShares MSCI EMU, the RSI reading has hit 29.9 - by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 34.3. A bullish investor could look at EZU'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.

Looking at a chart of one year performance (below), EZU's low point in its 52 week range is $34.63 per share, with $44.19 as the 52 week high point - that compares with a last trade of $39.70. iShares MSCI EMU shares are currently trading down about 0.2% on the day.
