UTStarcom Inc. (NASDAQ:UTSI) is clearly on the roll but lower volume suggests the rally is loosing support.
Trina Solar (NYSE:TSL), a leading solar panel maker, is showing sustainable momentum, at least for the short run. With oil prices up in the $90s, fundamentals are in place for the industry. The other positive development for TSL is that despite recent gains, the stock is far from overbought.

China Green Agriculture (NYSE:CGA) seems to have bottomed out at arounfd $7.50. That's right at the lower end of her trading envelope. Technical indicators don't indicate where the stock is going to go from here.
New Oriental Education & Tech. Group Inc (NYSE:EDU), the largest such stock from the industry, is among the 20 most oversold Chinese stocks. While the ADR is clearly not oversold, its presence on the chart is just a bad indicator for the industry. Experience has thoughts us that when market leaders fall, smaller players follow. Investors better be careful with Chinacast Education Corporation (NASDAZQ:CAST), ChinaEdu Corporation (NASDAQ:CEDU) or China Education Alliance, Inc.(NYSE:CEU).
