RSI (Relative Strength Index) is a technical analysis tool that measures the speed and change of price movements. It helps identify overbought and oversold conditions by providing a numerical value that ranges from 0 to 100.


Typically, an RSI reading above 70 is considered overbought, indicating that the price has risen too much and a reversal or correction may be imminent. It suggests that the security may be due for a price decrease or pullback.


On the other hand, an RSI reading below 30 is considered oversold, suggesting that the price has fallen too much and may be due for a rebound or an upward correction. It indicates that the security may be undervalued and could potentially experience a price increase.


Traders and investors use the RSI to identify these overbought and oversold conditions as potential signals for buying or selling a security. However, it's essential to consider other factors and confirm the indications provided by the RSI with other technical indicators or fundamental analysis to make accurate trading decisions.
