Sitka Gold Corp. (SIG:CSE; SITKF:OTCQB; 1RF:FSE) is suspected to be at a low here, rather like Azarga Uranium was a few days back when we bought it ahead of its sharp rise on Friday. On its latest 6-month chart we can see that it has dropped substantially from its April peak, but latterly the rate of decline has slowed as it has approached and arrived at support at its February lows. Positive factors suggesting a high probability of it reversing to the upside here include recent new lows not being confirmed by momentum (MACD) and the relatively strong Accumulation line which has held up very well on the decline. With drilling underway at its RC gold project in the Yukon and drilling due to begin soon at its Alpha gold project in Nevada there exists the potential for positive news to get the stock moving higher, and this against the background of an improving outlook for gold due to mounting inflation.
The 42-month chart shows us the complete history of the stock on this market and the main point to observe on this chart is the big divergence between the Accumulation line and the On-balance Volume with the former strong and the latter weak. When this sort of divergence appears we go with the former as being more reliable because Accumulation is calculated on an intraday basis whereas On-balance Volume is calculated on an end of day basis and is therefore regarded as less reliable.
Sitka is therefore regarded as a speculative buy here. Even if the support at the 12 cent level is breached it is thought likely that it will snap back quickly. Sitka trades in reasonable volumes on the U.S. OTC market.
