In trading on Wednesday, shares of the First Trust Tactical High Yield ETF (Symbol: HYLS) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $48.52 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 First Trust Tactical High Yield, the RSI reading has hit 28.2 - by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 72.5. A bullish investor could look at HYLS's 28.2 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.
