When charted, the RSI can serve as a visual means to monitor historical and current strength or weakness in a certain market. If the ratio is less than 1, then we can determine that there has been a decrease in price. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A company with a value of 0 is thought to be an undervalued company, while a company with a value of 100 is considered an overvalued company. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation. On the flip side, an RSI near 0 may signal weaker momentum.
