Each week, Stockhead presents a summary of moves in the relative strength index (RSI) for small-cap ASX stocks.

The RSI is a technical price indicator which is calculated on two key factors; the number of days a stock closes higher (or lower) from the previous session, and the size of those daily moves — both measured over a period of two weeks.

For a more detailed recap of how it works, click here.

By presenting the data for stocks with both high and low RSI reading, our Hot Money coverage aims to provide a useful snapshot of which stocks are in favour among investors, and which aren’t.

A reading of 70 is seen as the level at which a company’s been overbought. If a stock has a reading of 30 or below, it may be undervalued. Here’s this week’s list:

Running hot

For the two-week period ended June 7, a total of 12 stocks recorded RSI readings above 75 — down from 17 the previous Friday.

The index had a new leader last week in Monash IVF Group (ASX: MVF), which registered an RSI of 85.94.

Quite often, a high RSI reading is accompanied by one or more positive market announcements by the company in question. But MVF has provided no updates since May 24, when it issued a change in substantial shareholder notice.

Since that date, the stock has climbed steadily from $1.145 to $1.30. Since it was founded in 2008, MVF has grown via acquisition and currently operates IVF, genetic testing and ultrasound services across Australia and Asia.

Running cold

There were 21 stocks with an RSI below 25, up from 20 the week prior.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Dacian Gold (ASX: DCN) was icy cold with an RSI reading of just 9.59.

The stock was the worst performer on the ASX last week, after the company announced a production downgrade at its WA gold mine.

Also running cold was investment advisory company Evans Dixon (ASX: ED1), which fell to $1.02 from $1.60 at the start of April and posted an RSI of 10.65.
