Traditionally, RSI readings greater than the 70 level are considered to be in overbought territory, and RSI readings lower than the 30 level are considered to be in oversold territory. The odds are that it is overpriced at that point and the investor should expect a correction in price. RVOL compares a stock's current volume to its previous amount over a specific period. The indicator should not be confused with relative strength. The disadvantage of using just RSI to track a stock is that large surges or declines can create false buy or sell conditions. On the other hand if price drops, the contrary is right.
