January 28, 2014 (Chinavestor) Chinese stocks continued to decline on Monday as the dust hasn't settled yet after the SEC clamp down on their auditing. 51job Inc. (NASDAQ:JOBS) is clearly oversold just like Sina Corp. (NASDAQ:SINA), China BAK Battery (NASDAQ:CBAK) and HSBC Plc. (NYSE:HSBC).
Interestingly, Baidu Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) is not oversold to the extremes yet. This we said is interesting because it is Baidu Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) that fell the most in dollar terms after the SEC news last Thursday.
Large cap Chinese telecoms, China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) and China Unicom (NYSE:CHU) are also trading close to theoretical lows, well below their regular trading range. See chart below for details.
When it comes to overbought Chinese stocks, the only one shining on the screen below is Shanda Games (NASDAQ:GAME). The company allegedly received a $6.90/share going private offer. Other than that, there is not much to find on the overbought China stock screen for Tuesday.
