Forecast prices
« on: Fri, 08 December, 2017, 11:44 »
Hi,

Does the software have any way of using the forecast price?

For example I want to bet on a horse if the price before the off is 50% lower than the racing post forecast price of the horse.

No it doesn't read data from 3rd party websites.  I know of other software that will probably do what you wish, but you will need to PM me for details.   It may be possible to load such information into Excel and then query it in MFPro, but I am not an Excel expert.

Hi
Betfair Forecast Price, provided by Timeform I believe, is available in Silks data:
(silk_numerator/silk_denominator)+1

Great thank you Timeform will do:)

Now just have to work out how to back a selection if priced has dropped greater than 50% :)

Off the top of my head ...
One of the conditions needs to be 
Selection's back_price*2 is less than (silk_numerator/silk_denominator)+1
