Investors know that high beta stocks are the ones that really move. Should the EU summit deliver tangible results in solving the continent's sovereign debt crisis, oversold volatile stocks have a very strong case. Looking at the oversold screen, we can't miss China Sunergy Co. Ltd. (NASDAQ:CSUN). The stock is trading way below its trading range, making it ripe for a comeback. On the downside, the stock hasn't reached theoretical lows yet and may continue to fall. It all depends on market sentiment. LDK Solar (NYSE:LDK) is not oversold but is trading close enough to theoretical lows to get on oversold the list today. Needless to say the stock has huge upside potential, if and if markets receive EU summit news well. Same is true for Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ). And while not on the chart but Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) and Yingli Green Energy (NYSE:YGE) are looking just like the rest of the sector.
Chinese technology stocks offer upside potential as well. Smart traders got to love Changyou.com Ltd. (NASDAQ:CYOU). The stock went from $24 to $34 earlier the month just to fall back to $27 yesterday. Chinavestor Premium members got a chance to make quick profits off the stock two weeks ago.

Other volatile stocks that offer trading opportunities include Ctrip.com Int. (NASDAQ:CTRP) and 51job Inc. (NASDAQ:JOBS). While both stocks are not oversold to the extremes, chances are that they will surge once markets receive some good news from Europe.
