Labouchere staking system??
« on: Mon, 12 July, 2010, 15:57 »
Hello

Would it be possible to implement this lay staking system (http://www.thestakingmachine.com/laylabouchere.php) ?

I would love to be able to use this system and have tried to think about how you could write it into a trigger, but it seems it would be extremely complicated to do.  

I would be using this in markets where there are only 2 outcomes and, ideally, I would like the amount I am trying to win in each sequence to be calculated as a percentage of the starting bank.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks!

Hello

I used to use a Labouchere system before I found MF Pro with really good results. I don't know how to go about making a Labouchere trigger so I have been using a cautious Martingdale system with MF Pro which is not great for stress levels.

Like e1vis I'd love to be able to use a Labouchere lay staking system so if anyone has any ideas...

Thanks

Bobus

I've just added an example with the Labouchere system.

Take a look here.

hi Oxa

Thanks very much for this - I have downloaded each of the files but the custom cells aren't showing in the excel tab of my settings. Please can you let me know how I can sort this?

Thanks

DarkHorse, did you connect MF Pro to the Excel file with a sheet named "Labouchere"?

OK, this error message can come up in two cases:

1. There is no sheet with this name. You're saying that you can clearly see it in the spreadsheet file, so I'm dismissing this one.

2. The spreadsheet is somehow blocked, so the program can't write into it. This could happen if you have entered a cell to edit it, i.e. if the cursor is blinking inside it. Is it the case? Also if the sheet is protected, but I don't think you have changed the file in any way.

Anyway, try to read something from the sheet, like type this into the "View Variables" window and tell me what it returns: cell_Labouchere_A1.

In the file that there is in the example the "Step" is equal to 1, whereas in what you have given it is equal to 19.

The program may crash because the file is corrupted or changed.

The "View Variables" window is in the right-top corner of the window. See manual, chapter "Triggered Betting" -> "Trigger Variables" -> "View Variables" for a screenshot.

Bobus, you've got to save the file customcells.xml in the folder where MF Pro is.
So if, for example, you installed it in "C:\Program Files\MarketFeeder Pro", then the file should be in "C:\Program Files\MarketFeeder Pro\customcells.xml".

Check that using a file explorer.
