Check out the Nifty 500 stocks in overbought zone after market bounces back
The Indian stock market has been consolidating after a heavy selloff followed by a bounce back last week. But there are many stocks that are potentially in the overbought zone given their positions on the technical charts.
We considered the Money Flow Index (MFI), which is technical oscillator that incorporates both the share price and traded volume data for placing companies in the overbought or oversold baskets. The index can also potentially help an investor to identify divergences that could be hinting at a change of trend in price.
The index figures vary between 0 and 100 and anything below 20 could be used as a measure to pick bounce back candidates and stocks with value over 80 are considered in the overbought space and therefore may see a selloff.
Since the MFI uses both price and traded volume data, it is also called volume-weighted Relative Strength Index (RSI) as against the conventional technical measure that uses only price.
Overall, we get 36 stocks in the Nifty 500 that could be up for a selloff.
