Back price / lay price
« on: 02 Apr 2011, 13:56 »
I want the difference between the best back price and best lay price for a selection to be at least 5 ticks

So I am looking for:

A trigger condition/expression such as "The difference between the between the best back price and best lay price for a selection is at least 5 ticks"

Obviously I can add another trigger condition such as back book % must be 103% or lower (Don't worry I know how to do this)

Is this possible?

Please help

Thanks

N.B. This happens a lot. If Man utd are playing arsenal and it is discovered 1 hour before kick off that Wayne rooney is on the bench.... the market can change from

best back price man u 2.02
best lay price    man u 2.04

to

best back price man u 2.02
best lay price    man u 2.12

within a few minutes as punters jump on the lay causing it to drift from 2.04 to 2.12.

The difference between the best back price and best lay price here is 5 ticks i.e.
the difference between 2.02 is 2.12

hi
condition
and selections lay price is equal to r_ticks(back_price,5)
so if the lay price is 5 tick greater than the back price then activate
or if you need it 5 or more ticks, then is equal or greater than
