Back recovery strategy
« on: 01 Nov 2020, 19:24 »
Hi,
I was wondering if someone could help me with a trigger? I can build the initial trigger myself but recovery etc gets a bit too much for me to comprehend or rather build!

So I have a trigger that bets on 3rd favourite if over 5 for example, but this is the betting pattern I wish to achieve:

Bet $1 (Unit) for 5 cycles at price, resetting the count if successful.
After 5 cycles add $1 for a further 5 races etc 
So $1 bets x 5 races Then $2 x 5 races then $3 bets for 5 races etc always resetting if successful (back to initial value of $1) with a cap on the exposure I would think.
I think that if a race is unsettled I would ignore and just bet per cycle position.

I hope this makes sense?

My next question is if I do the above in block A, can I repeat for block B with a different trigger running an independent count? Or put another way can I differentiate between a profit coming from Block A or B. My guess is no but thought I would ask??

I would really appreciate help/trigger

Cheers

Gordon

Hi,
i just realised I would also need the initial trigger built as I do not know how to link it to the recovery part, if that makes sense!

Thanks

Hi Gordon,

I'm working on your trigger request.

You can, but you will need to do extra programming for this, as BetFair does not provide any means to differentiate between settled bets placed by a trigger and bets placed elsewhere (or by another bot, etc.). But in certain cases it is possible to separate two strategies, especially if they are not betting on exactly the same selections.

I am testing your triggers and will deliver them later today.

However, to request the programming needed to separate two strategies, and specifically the second strategy as well, you will have to make a new trigger request.

Please see your triggers attached.

Use the constants inside the file to adjust the trigger settings.

Make sure to test the triggers in Test Mode.

Hi Oxa, thanks for your help, not sure what I am missing but running on Australian greys and triggers not firing. I am not sure what the previous triggered event -15 means either?

Regards

Gordon

Check the Program Log for any error messages. Since the unit size is $1, you need to turn on "Allow small bets" in Betting Options or increase the size of the bet (see the attached file with the increased size of bet).

This is a standard construct that says "either make sure that the previous event where the trigger fired is settled (bet_cntr=0) or wait for 15 minutes after the scheduled start of that event, then ignore it". I removed this block if you don't need it.

Hi,
I have small bets ticked still dont even get initial bet, does it work at your end? All I have done is reduce price for 3rd F to 4 so I get more matches for testing.
Cheers

Yes, I get bets when testing these triggers.

Please attach your Program Log and the trigger log for trigger "backing".

Will do but first could it be this? As when all other factors were met this said false!

Checking condition and Global Total Won/Lost Amount is greater than -max_lss.
15:31:57Condition is: FALSE.

Please try the attached triggers: they reset your Win/Lose history, as apparently you have a history of losses in your statement which is qualified as a reason to stop placing bets.
Also, make sure the first round of testing is in Test Mode.

Thanks Oxa,

You are amazing, but I guess it is your baby afterall!!

working so far, will trial for a while and let you know if any hickups, just a quick one though, if i say bet on 3rd and 4th if over x should it still work? I dont mean as in wanting separate results just more than 1 runner. 

Also if I replicate the whole block as we discussed earlier with a second runner will it run congruently and hence keep a count on the 2 seperate outcomes. Sorry not trying to complicate things just wanting to know my limitations.

Thanks

Gordon
