Will Sophos rebound?


Recommended Posts



I was just curious about peoples thoughts on Cyber security firm Sophos. Purchased in Jan 18, I've taken a bit hit recently and the downwards momentum looks slightly worrying. Is this a ride the storm or get out now situation....? :smileysad:

Hi .  Good question, no real reason given for the big gap down in early Feb,  http://www.cityam.com/280251/sophos-share-price-plunges-despite-solid-trading-update


The chart is trying to turn and today's bar is encouraging and looking to be engulfing but price still has a lot of work to do with two levels of resistance to work through and could reverse again at either. The chart is currently bearish after all.


The bigger test is at the arrow where there is solid resistance as well as the 100 ma to contend with.


Watch the daily bars, if price reverses again here I would just get out, if price takes this level (473.6) get a stop behind it as soon as possible and if price continues up think to move the stop up to behind the next resistance level as you go, they are important levels and you don't want to see them breached to the down side again.


If you entered in early Jan that would have been a fair dip buying entry though a stop loss just below would have been advisable.

If you bought late Jan that would have been a fair breakout entry though again a stop loss not far from the breakout level in case you were wrong would also have been advisable.


Sometimes it takes a couple of goes to get the entry right but if the initial stops are relatively tight then no real harm done but this one got away from you due to that unexplained gap.

    • Interesting data from the latest weekly PHE covid report download (as highlighted in the 'UK Vaccination Programme Part 1'. (article linked several posts above)   Attendance to emergency care and deaths from Covid (Delta)   6 months 1 Feb to 29 Aug 2021Unvaxxed     219,716Vaxxed         222,693     (27,993 + 80,877 + 113,823)   So obviously the vaccines do nothing to reduce infection and illness.But when looking at deaths alone the vaxxed are worse off. 68 per cent of covid deaths when including the partially ‘vaccinated’; while the ‘unvaccinated’ made up less than 30 per cent, when the vaxxed are less than 60% of the population.   So the Vaccines don't work they just make things worse. Reminder that when the drug companies said their vaccines had an efficacy of 95% what they meant was the difference between 0.88% (next to nothing) and 0.04% (also next to nothing). But that was against the now extinct Alpha not the now dominant vaccine resistant Delta (and all subsequent variants).   https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1014926/Technical_Briefing_22_21_09_02.pdf
    • The DMA platform is a special download so you would know if you had it. The IG web based platform as used by most clients is as described below.
