In trading on Wednesday, shares of the iShares Mortgage Real Estate ETF (Symbol: REM) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $43.31 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 Mortgage Real Estate, the RSI reading has hit 29.0 - by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 64.2. A bullish investor could look at REM'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.

Looking at a chart of one year performance (below), REM's low point in its 52 week range is $39.80 per share, with $47.64 as the 52 week high point - that compares with a last trade of $43.34. iShares Mortgage Real Estate shares are currently trading down about 2.5% on the day.
