China Automotive Systems (NASDAQ:CAAS) has been an excellent trading stock, similar to Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ:MPEL) in many respects.

Sinopec (NYSE:SNP) is an energy stock that enjoyed falling oil prices, along with China Southern Airlines (NYSE:ZNH) and smaller rival China Eastern Airlines (NYSE:CEA). Refining margins improve for Sinopec (NYSE:SNP), China's largest refiner, when crude is falling, explaining the latest surge on the overbought monitor. But that is about to change as world wide rally and a weaker dollar helps commodity stocks but hurts upstream oil companies like Sinopec (NYSE:SNP). The same is true for airliners; high oil translates to high kerosene prices thus hurting profitability. None of these stocks are expected to extend latest rally.
