April 21, 2011 (Chinavestor) Thanks to a 180 plus points advance of the DJIA, the overbought China stock monitor is full of action. GigaMedia Limited (NASDAQ:GIGM) is trading closest to theoretical highs but investors have to pay attention to internet stocks like Ctrip.com Inc. (NASDAQ:CTRP) or Sina Crop. (NASDAQ:SINA). Trading stock Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ:MPEL) remains active while China Unicom (NYSE:CHU) stays on fire.
Internet darling Ctrip.com Inc. (NASDAQ:CTRP) approached $50 range and may break through it any time. The stock is far from theoretical highs, leaving more room to the upside.
Another interent stock on fire, Sina Corp. (NASDAQ:SINA), is looking interesting. Despite strong gain, the stock has more upside left, according to the overbought chart.
Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ:MPEL) is trading at 52 week high and closed at $10, a resistance level many thought may be too far. But the overbought monitor leaves more upside for the stock below.
March operational statistics lifted China Unicom (NYSE:CHU), a fundamental strength that might be able to keep the stock go higher. But downside risk is clearly on the rise after a 20% advance for the month.
online gamers lost their shine as the overbought chart testfies. Perfect World (NASDAQ:PWRD), Shanda Games (NASDAQ:GAME) and Shanda Interactive (NASDAQ:SNDA) all fell on Wednesday with no indication what the next move is going to be.
LDK Solar (NYSE:LDK) is almost oversold but solar stocks are subject to energy and oil price fluctuations. The rest of the oversold screen is not showing any China stock at extremes.
