SECT Enters Oversold Territory

In trading on Friday, shares of the SECT ETF (Symbol: SECT) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $47.23 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 SECT, the RSI reading has hit 28.7 — by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 32.0. A bullish investor could look at SECT's 28.7 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), SECT's low point in its 52 week range is $39.79 per share, with $51.07 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $47.29. SECT shares are currently trading off about 1.1% on the day.
