Stockhead’s data team counted three stocks that ran red-hot with a 14-day RSI above 90 over the Christmas/New Year period.

Each Monday, Stockhead recaps the ASX stocks that are running hot with investors.

The analysis is based on the Relative Strength Index (RSI), a technical gauge which measures how trading momentum is affecting the price action.

A reading of 70 is seen as the level at which a company may have been overbought. If a stock has a reading of 30 or below, it could be undervalued.

While there’s usually a pretty good reason if a given stock is running hot (or cold), investors are also on the lookout for opportunities where the price action has separated from fundamentals.

And junior gas explorer Norwest Energy (ASX:NWE) also posted a hot 13-day RSI reading of 90.28 over the break.
