Chinese telecoms come handy when investors fled to safety, as was the case last week while the Greek turmoil roiled markets. But their attractiveness is loosing shine as risk appetite is back. China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) is actually considered overbought and has more downside risk than upside potential. Don't expect much upside from China Telecom (NYSE:CHA) either.
Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ:MPEL) rose almost 20% this week and is considered overbought. Not that is has reached theoretical highs but rather the stretch seems to be too much, too fast.
Asia's largest refiner, Sinopec (NYSE:SNP) is a stock with sound momentum. Despite sizable gains, more upside is possible, according to the overbought indicator.
China Automotive Systems (NASDAQ:CAAS) gave back all its previous gains this week and is back to square one. There Is no indication where the stock is going to go from here.
There hasn't been any changes on the oversold end of the China stock universe. Small caps have been under pressure, a fact that is not about to change anytime soon.
