RSI stands for “Relative Strength Index” and is a widely used momentum oscillator. To read the details of how it’s computed and see some chart examples, we recommend this article.
RSI values range from 0 to 100 and measure the price movements down (selling) vs the price movements up (buying). Low RSI values are called “oversold” (for example RSI below 30) and can present opportunities to buy. High RSI values are called “overbought” (RSI above 70) and present opportunities to sell.
