Feb. 4, 2010 (Chinavestor) Looking at the overbought chart this morning, a $23.60 jump of Baidu.com (NASDAQ:BIDU) yesterday propelled the stock to the top of the chart. But despite a sizable advance, Baidu.com (NASDAQ:BIDU) is not overbought yet. All it needs is a good market day to keep going higher. But when it comes to the market, you never know..
