In trading on Thursday, shares of the Vanguard Total International Stock ETF (Symbol: VXUS) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $52.106 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 Vanguard Total International Stock, the RSI reading has hit 29.0 - by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 32.2. A bullish investor could look at VXUS's 29.0 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.
