A A A

In trading on Wednesday, shares of the SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (Symbol: JNK) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $40.81 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 SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond, the RSI reading has hit 29.5 - by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 53.0. A bullish investor could look at JNK's 29.5 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), JNK's low point in its 52 week range is $39.14 per share, with $41.82 as the 52 week high point - that compares with a last trade of $40.87. SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond shares are currently trading off about 0.6% on the day.
