The Canadian marijuana stocks we’ve dug up could be undervalued based on their relative strength index (RSI)
SmallCapPower | August 6, 2019: The relative strength index, or RSI, is an indicator measuring the degree of recent price changes. RSI is used to evaluate overbought or oversold conditions in the price of an asset. Generally, RSI is considered overbought when above 70 and oversold when below 30. Traders often use RSI as a potential indicator towards what direction an asset’s price might move. If a stock is overbought, that means that analysts or traders believe it is trading above its intrinsic value. If a stock is oversold, analysts or traders believe it is trading below its intrinsic value and has the potential for a price bounce. Today we’ve found four oversold Canadian marijuana stocks: cannabis stocks with an RSI below 30 on a basis of their 7-day RSI and 14-Day RSI.
