Trigger for system i use
« on: Sat, 05 February, 2011, 15:57 »
Hi All

Just downloaded this software on trial but don’t really know where to start with the trigger i need or even if its possible.
I use a system that i do manually at the moment that seems to work but would like it automated.
Basically i wait for the race to go in to play and lay any horse that's price is about 10% lower than the SP price but only for the first 10 seconds of the race.
So if the race starts and a horse SP is say 35 i would lay it if it hits 27 in the first 10 seconds. Theory is getting better odds than SP so long term will make a profit.
Anyone think they can do this trigger for me?

hi
i have made the trigger to stop refreshing at 15 secs after the off.
it places the lay bet within 10 secs after the off, only if the odds are 10% or more, less than the sp on any horse.
i have set it to 1€, just change the 1 in the amount box to whatever you want.
if you want to monitor all the race then set the stop refreshing to never.

hi
i just tried it and it picked 3 selections one of them was the 3rd fav and it won.
the next race it picked 2 selections.
if you want to limit your fav selections then add a condition
and selections  rank is greater than 5 (alter to what you want)
this will place lay bets on any fav from 6th upwards

Many Thanks for such a quick reply. Can this be tested on previous races or do i need it to run on current races? Do you think it will work long term?

hi
you will have to run it in test mode with current races.
long term, you will have to go for lower odds, because you only need 1 at big odds and it will take days to get back on track.
add a condition
and selections lay price is equal or less than 11.00 (or the max you would risk)

you should have an idea about the max odds, from when you have done it manualy.

Thanks mcbee

I usually lay between 25 and 50 so hardly get many winners. Yesterday i got an SP55 on at 24 in the first 10 secs and still made a profit on the day

hi
that the first trigger, it is to stop refreshing the market after about 18 secs.
this is just to cut down on your refresh rate, you can set this trigger to never if you want to.
the second trigger is what you need.
if you want to lay at above 20.00 odds then add a condition
and selections lay price is equal or greater than 20.00.

Trigger is working fine thanks. How do you turn off the bet confirmation so it doesn't ask you each time to confirm the bet?

hi
open the settings at the top right corner of the bot screen
untick request confirmation for every critical operation.

also you need to limit your refresh/request rate.
press the graph icon (connection monitor) at the top right corner of the bot screen
set the request limit to 10
now apply
this will keep your betfair requests within the limit so you don't get charged.

Thanks for all you help with this. Is there any way i can set it to only lay 1 horse a race to cut down the risk of getting the winner?

Hi, why not lay all selections at sp odds minus 10% and cancel all unmatched bets after 20 seconds? This way your bets are already waiting to be matched and not reponding to matched bets that have already occured (and may not be repeated).

Although I would say it looks like it may have plenty of good days, you will get some shockers when several outsiders win at huge odds, be very cautious for many weeks!

Cancel All after 1st match is straight forward, but you may still get more than 1 match with the time delay and I'm still not convinced it will be any more profitable, but it will take you longer to realise it!

hi
if you want to just have 1 selection.
with the lay trigger, set the SELECTIONS to first matching selection.
then save the trigger.
