By
A A A

In trading on Monday, shares of the SPDR S&P Regional Banking ETF (Symbol: KRE) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $36.89 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 S&P Regional Banking, the RSI reading has hit 29.1 - by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 33.7. A bullish investor could look at KRE's 29.1 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), KRE's low point in its 52 week range is $29.61 per share, with $41.24 as the 52 week high point - that compares with a last trade of $37.00. SPDR S&P Regional Banking shares are currently trading off about 3.4% on the day.
