China Unicom (NYSE:CHU) is the stock to watch among extremes on the overbought chart. While the stock hasn't reached theoretical highs yet, the indicator raises a red flag. Large cap stocks don't usually get overbought to the extreme. China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (NYSE:SNP) is another stock where downside risk exceeds upside potential.
Fushi Copperweld, Inc (NASDAQ:FSIN) appointed KPMG, one of the big four, to audit its books. The stock made a modest advance with more upside potential.
China Real Estate Information Corporation (NASDAQ:CRIC) has approached theoretical lows and may bottom out. But considering the reason for the drop, e.g. raising downpayment for second mortgages, the decline looks justified.
Shanda Games (NASDAQ:GAME) fell to the low end of its trading range - an opposite of what NetEase.com inc. (NASDAQ:NTES) has been doing lately.
Despite latest losses, more downside is possible for WuXi PharmaTech (Cayman) Inc (NYSE:WX), and JA Solar (NASDAQ:JASO), according to the oversold screen.
