    Royal Mail Group (RMG:xlon) has rallied into multiple resistance levels and appears to be rolling over to the downside.

    The shares have formed a range pattern on the daily chart and are now trading at the upper end of this pattern.

    With the medium term trend remaining firmly bearish, we look to use this as an opportunity to sell.

    The shares do rank above average in our fundamental model, scoring particularly well on value and momentum metrics.

    I believe from a price perspective that the shares are at a good level to sell.

    Our trade today is to sell at the open

    Stop loss at 452p
    Target at 400p

    I hope previous post about RangeTrader illustrated power of Event-driven programming.

    This time we utilize events to accumulate our position size.
    We operate hourly bars. If we get hourly bar that fulfill our trade criteria we open position.

    The condition is that we do not have position open and in this case we have RSI smaller than 2. We set initial position size as target size divided by 4. When we get order confirm from broker we store our position status.

    The latter part of hourly bar function handles position accumulation. If we are below our target size we send buy order to broker. Again this time the size is target size divided by 4. This continues for next hourly bars until we have reached our target size for position.

    Again remember that reception of new hourly bar can contain other filters if you choose not to apply position accumulation for every hourly bar.

    After we have built our position...

    SP500 has the look of a major bear squeeze IMHO. A rally of this strength on no real data today makes me suspicious of the move FWIW.
    IF you are long then may I suggest a stop at the very least at todays' day low as we may get a sudden change in market sentiment IMHO. Currently I am flat.
