In trading on Thursday, shares of the Vanguard Russell 2000 ETF (Symbol: VTWO) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $117.78 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 Russell 2000, the RSI reading has hit 29.9 - by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 33.0. A bullish investor could look at VTWO's 29.9 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), VTWO's low point in its 52 week range is $106.26 per share, with $128.8235 as the 52 week high point - that compares with a last trade of $118.15. Vanguard Russell 2000 shares are currently trading off about 1.7% on the day.
