May 4, 2010 (Chinavestor) The overbought / oversold indicator comes handy when stocks are trading at extremes - which is exactly the case for today. There aren't any overbought China stocks technically speaking, yet stocks with unusual momentum are susceptible to decline. China Unicom (NYSE:CHU), China Sunergy (NASDAQ:CSUN), Baidu.com (NASDAQ:BIDU), Spreadtrum Communication (NASDAQ:SPRD), CNinsure Inc. (NASDAQ:CISG) and JA Solar (NASDAQ:JASO) are in the danger zone today.
