Fluctuations within the RSI can be dramatic at times, so it is not always an accurate measure of what a stock may be doing. The disadvantage of using just RSI to track a stock is that large surges or declines can create false buy or sell conditions. An asset is considered to be overbought once the RSI approaches the 70 level, meaning that it may be getting overvalued and is a good candidate for a pullback. An RSI between 30 and 70 was to be considered neutral and an RSI around 50 signified no trend. For example, someone might consider any number above 80 as overbought and anything below 20 as undersold. The range is measured the same way for options and commodities - high minus low - as they are for stocks. Trading is inherently risky.
