September 7, 2011 (Chinavestor) Small cap China stocks dominate the overbought chart today. Sutor Technology (NASDAQ:SUTR) leveled off on Tuesday, just as predicted. We wrote yesterday referring to Sutor Tech. (NASDAQ:SUTR) that "more downside risk than upside potential at this point." But Agria Corp. (NYSE:GRO) continues to defy technicals . There are tow large cap China stocks on the over bought screen today, China Unicom (NYSE:CHU) and China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (NYSE:SNP). The first one has highly unusual momentum but Sinopec (NYSE:SNP) has a lot to go before its get overbought. Changyou.com Inc. (NASDAQ:CYOU) is back on the top of the oversold China stock chart. Notable movers on that end of the China stock universe include Synutra International (NASDAQ:SYUT) and China Real Estate Information Corp. (NASDAQ:CRIC).
Investors wonder how far Agria Corp. (NYSE:GRO) can go from here. The stock jumped 21.5% yesterday on top of previous gains. Agria Corp. (NYSE:GRO) is up 50% in the last three days of trading! The stock is obviously overbought but is a low volume stock rendering technical indicators less accurate.
China Unicom (NYSE:CHU) has been the best performing major Chinese telecom after reporting second quarter financials. Investors realize the 3G success the company has made and bet on its continued successes. The good news is that despite latest rally, the stock is trading just over $21, still far from $22.6 its current theoretical high.
China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (NYSE:SNP) has been trading in a much narrower range and is FAR from being overbought. The reason we highlight this stock is that besides CHU, Sinopoec (NYSE:SNP) is the only other large cap stock on the overbought monitor today. This speaks volumes about the state of the markets.
Changyou.com Inc. (NASDAQ:CYOU) has been abandoned by investors following a dismal 2011 second quarter report. The stock's been trading in a narrow range with a negative bias.
Synutra International (NASDAQ:SYUT) slid 20% in the last three trading days. The bad news is that despite the slide, the stock hasn't reached theoretical lows yet. This implies more downside is possible.
China Real Estate Information Corp. (NASDAQ:CRIC) fell %10% on Monday but again, more downside is possible., Plus this stock is a low volume ADR making the oversold indicator inaccurate. .
