SCANA Stock Is Still Trading in the Oversold Zone

SCANA stock looks weak

SCANA Corporation (SCG) stock seemed to have taken a breather from its free fall in the last few trading sessions. In the last one-month period, SCG stock has corrected more than 17% after the US Attorney’s office in South Carolina commenced a criminal investigation against the utility regarding rate recovery of the V.C. Summer nuclear power plant.

The RSI (relative strength index) of SCANA stock currently stands at 25. It entered the oversold zone on September 19, 2017, and it continues to trade there. According to technical analysis, RSI values below 30 are considered in the oversold zone, while RSI values above 70 are considered in the overbought zone. RSI readings at the extremes could indicate a reversal in a stock’s direction.
