One way we can try to measure the level of fear in a given stock is through a technical analysis indicator called the Relative Strength Index, or RSI, which measures momentum on a scale of zero to 100. A stock is considered to be oversold if the RSI reading falls below 30.

In trading on Monday, shares of LinkedIn (LNKD) stock entered into oversold territory, hitting an RSI reading of 28.2, after changing hands as low as $158.06 per share.
