Looking at the overbought screen first, it is obvious that Huaneng Power International (NYSE:HNP) is overbought. The stock reached theoretical highs after a 4.3% jump yesterday. The stock is ready for a correction right now.
Fushi Copperweld (NASDAQ:FSIN) is also a stock of concern, along with General Steel (NYSE:GSI). Both stock reached theoretical highs and are expected to pull back.
A technical correction looks timely for ChinaCast Education (NASDAQ:CAST) as well although the reason for the rally is different in here. The company received a buyout offer and might continue to go higher.
Online travel site Ctrip.com Int. (NASDAQ:CTRP) fell too much, too hard, according to the oversold monitor. The stock is ready to make a sound comeback, if technical indicators prove right.
Ku6 Media (NASDAQ:KUTV) hasn't reached theoretical lows yet but is trading way below its trading range and may come back as well.
The rests of stocks on the screen are not oversold and thus have a lot more downside left.
