Upside Breakout Seen for This Pioneering Environmental Technology Company
Contributed Opinion

Share on Stocktwits


A company that uses naturally occurring bacteria to separate precious and base metals from difficult to treat ores, concentrates and tailings has caught the attention of this technical analyst.

BacTech Environmental Corp. (BAC:CSE; BCCEF:OTC; OBT1:FRA) is a company that uses naturally occurring bacteria, harmless to humans and the environment, to liberate precious and base metals from difficult to treat ores, concentrates and tailings, which means that its operations are congruent with the objectives of the powers that be and this no doubt helps to explain why its stock chart has an upward bias.

Bactech was recommended in a Market Notebook article back on 10th January but it has reacted back into support for further and longer than expected. However, as we can see on its latest 16-month below, nothing has broken technically, and what appears to have happened is that a countertrend Pennant has formed that has brought the price back into strong support at the ápex of the large Triangle that it earlier broke out of in December. Various technical factors support an upside breakout from this Pennant soon and a resumption of its larger uptrend. Having fully corrected its earlier overbought condition to even become oversold, momentum (MACD) is now turning higher. On-balance Volume is overall strong and has not dropped back at all on the price reaction back from the start of the year and finally if it advances from here as expected, moving averages will quickly swing into strongly bullish alignment.

The conclusion is that this looks like a very good point to buy, ahead of a new upleg starting. BacTech stock should of course be helped by strengthening gold and silver prices as the dollar’s collapse starts to accelerate.
