a little help please
« on: Sun, 28 April, 2013, 17:45 »
Hi all,
I have a lay trigger with loss recoup and need to  restrict it to a max liability of £20
or 6 recoup steps, whichever comes first. I tried adding constants but they didn't work at all. I had a slender grip on the old version but cant get my head round v 7 at all.
Thanks for any help.

hi
when you say 6 recoup steps, does that mean forget the loss and start over again or just fix the liability to 20.
i think that this staking plan is ideal for you as you can set it to 6 steps and fix a max liability all in the constants.

Ok, not sure this is what i need. My trigger has,
default_laya/(lay_price-1) + last_lost/(1-commission)
Can I incorporate this.

hi
if you want to keep your old trigger, then add it to your reply and i will add the max liability or 6 losses then start over.

Hi mcbee,

That is, in essence, my trigger, lay at a specific price and recoup any loss.

hi
at the moment then, how do you recover the loss.
do you use last_lost
you see it is very difficult to write a formula if we do not know what is been done in the first place.

Hi,
Sorry, its,
default_laya/(lay_price-1) + last_lost/(1-commission)

hi
thanks.
so if the liability gets to 20.00 or more, or 6 losses in a row , then restart the sequence.
new trigger
reset win/lose history
conditions
selections trigger expression default_laya/(lay_price-1) is greater than 20
OR selections trigger expression losses is equal or greater than 6
set trigger to once per market

this will reset your history so that losses=0 and last_lost=0
