Fuqi International (NASDAQ:FUQI) rose 21 percent and started to level off on Tuesday, similarly to WSP Holdings (NYSE:WH). One big trade sent Yucheng Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ:YTEC) soaring on Monday but started to give back some of it on Tuesday. Outlook is uncertain with a negative bias, according to the overbought monitor.
