Insight into Leading Materials Stocks for Investors

As we stride into April 2024, the materials sector is lining up five stocks that could be sending a warning flare to investors who rely on momentum as a cornerstone of their investment strategy.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI), a trustworthy gauge of momentum, juxtaposes a stock’s strength on upward-moving price days against that on downward days. This index, when juxtaposed against a stock’s price performance, equips traders with a glimpse into potential short-term outcomes. A stock is deemed overbought when its RSI surpasses 70, according to Benzinga Pro.
