21 stocks have something to offer before they enter oversold zone on RSI

Momentum oscillator Relative Strength Index (RSI), which was developed by J Welles Wilder, explains the strength and movement of stock prices to determine the overbought and oversold regions. The oscillator moves between 0 to 100.

Theoretically, If RSI for any stock enters 70 level, it is considered as overbought zone and if it moves below 30, the stock is known to have slipped into oversold territory. It also helps to identify the trend on divergence in prices.  

In various studies, the oscillator is used to generate signal on price patterns and trendline levels. Analysts have correlated RSI with other indicators to gauge better results.

When a stock's price approach near 70 levels, the trend starts to deteriorate and prices start to rise on a slower pace. Few stocks trade flat, while others start losing grounds.
