NiSource’s RSI (relative strength index) stands at 67. The RSI is a momentum indicator made up of values between zero and 100. Movements below 30 are considered to be in the “oversold” zone, while movements above 70 are considered to be in the “overbought” zone and can hint at an impending reversal in the stock price.

Short interest in NiSource fell substantially

This fall in short interest may mean that fewer investors are now expecting the stock to fall in the near term from its current levels.
