Tracking Shares of Vanguard Intermediate Term Corporate Bond Etf (VCIT) — Market Focus

When the price is below the Balance Step, this generally spells a bearish trend.

Traders may use the indicator to determine stock trends or to identify overbought/oversold conditions.

When the RSI line moves up, the stock may be experiencing strength. The opposite would be the case for a falling ADX line. Active investors may choose to use this technical indicator as a stock evaluation tool. Wilder laid out the foundation for future technical analysts to further investigate the RSI and its relationship to underlying price movements. In general, if the indicator goes above -20, the stock may be considered overbought.
