Betfair Vs TimeMachine Volume data
« on: Tue, 28 March, 2017, 23:06 »
Hi, 

I purchased a few tennis markets recently for backtesting in TimeMachine. However, I noticed that the volume matched for all those matches does not match to the actual volume matched on BetFair after the match is completed. Could someone please tell me why is there a difference in the TimeMachine and the actual BetFair data? 

Regards,
Neil

Hi Tim, 

For instance, Thiem vs Zverev in R32 of ATP Rotterdam Open 17.

Neil

Either at the end of the live match from BetFair Website or by downloading historical data from BetFair Website.

Hello Neil,

I checked a couple of markets and didn't find any difference. See attached screens.
Could you please show me some screenshots of yours?
Thank you.
