Shares of FCA Now Oversold
By Market News Video Staff, Thursday, August 30, 3:50 PM ET
In trading on Thursday, shares of the First Trust China AlphaDEX Fund ETF (NASDAQ:FCA) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $19.30 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 China AlphaDEX Fund, the RSI reading has hit 26.2 — by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 is currently 54.7.
A bullish investor could look at FCA's 26.2 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.
Looking at a chart of one year performance (below), FCA's low point in its 52 week range is $16.57 per share, with $23.77 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $19.31. First Trust China AlphaDEX Fund shares are currently trading down about 1.2% on the day.
