In trading on Tuesday, shares of the PowerShares Preferred Portfolio ETF (Symbol: PGX) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $14.30 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 PowerShares Preferred Portfolio, the RSI reading has hit 27.7 - by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 36.2. A bullish investor could look at PGX's 27.7 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), PGX's low point in its 52 week range is $11.16 per share, with $15.09 as the 52 week high point - that compares with a last trade of $14.30. PowerShares Preferred Portfolio shares are currently trading off about 1.1% on the day.
