Microsoft’s relative strength index score

Previously, we looked at Microsoft’s (MSFT) stockholder returns and MACD (moving average convergence divergence). In this part, we’ll look at its RSI (relative strength index) score, which is an important indicator of stock being overbought or oversold.

Microsoft’s 14-day RSI score is 61. An RSI score above 70 indicates that a stock has been overbought, whereas an RSI score below 30 suggests that a stock has been oversold. Microsoft’s stock surge has boosted its RSI score to 70, which indicates that Microsoft stock is approaching overbought territory. It’s worth noting that sudden stock price movements can cause RSI scores to falsely signal “sell” or “buy.”
