On the technical charts, the relative strength index (RSI) of the stock stands at 45.98. The RSI oscillates between zero and 100. Traditionally, it is considered an overbought condition when the RSI value is above 70 and an oversold condition when it is below 30. Chartists say that the RSI should not be considered in isolation, as it may not be enough to take a trade call, just as fundamental analysts cannot give a “buy” or “sell” recommendation using a single valuation ratio.
