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.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
