TYH chart

Shares of TYH pulled back by well over 1% on Monday alone to send the fund to its most oversold levels in more than two weeks.

Also down three in a row is the ^ROM^.

Breaking out to new highs ahead of trading on Tuesday was the ^AGQ^ (below).

AGQ chart

Up more than 4%, shares of AGQ have closed higher for the past four days in a row.

Looking to hedge silver exposure, or to take the other side of the overbought trade in the metal? The ^ZSL^ is one option. ZSL is built to provide the same returns as 200% of the inverse of the bullion price of silver.

A two-day pullback in the ^PBW^ has taken the stock to just inside of oversold territory above the 200-day.

Junk bond ETFs noted in yesterday’s 7 ETFs You Need to Know rallied into strength on Monday. Both the ^JNK^ and the ^HYG^ (below) bounced back from two-day pullbacks to close above their respective 5-day moving averages.

HYG chart

Shares of HYG pulled back from extremely overbought territory with a 2-period RSI of more than 97 to extremely oversold territory with a 2-period RSI of less than 7 in three days.
