Overbought and Oversold
Many pundits out there throw out the words overbought and oversold when it comes to stocks or the major stock indices. Is there a way to keep track of overbought and oversold?
There are many technical indicators (special indicators by looking at the stock charts) to help determine oversold and overbought conditions. Oscillators are the most popular. At one point, a stock (or index) is overbought, and then at another point, it oscillates back to oversold.
One popular Oscillator is the S&P (Standard and Poors) Oscillator, which is a proprietary Oscillator. In Jim Cramer’s ‘Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World’, Jim Cramer mentions the proprietary S&P Oscillator as one way to spot a market bottom. He says that it costs around $1000 to subscribe.
