[TR] Keep bet at BSP
« on: 01 Sep 2017, 12:11 »
Hi all,I would like to back the field at lay prices say 2 minutes before the off and at 30 seconds before the off cancel any unmatched bets and take betfair sp. Is this possible ? Apologies if this trigger has been covered before but I couldn't see it on the forum.

Many Thanks,
Jimbo.

I need some clarification on your request.

I'm afraid it is impossible to take SP before the off, as starting prices are only available after the race has turned In-Play. So this part:

and at 30 seconds before the off cancel any unmatched bets and take betfair sp

is impossible to achieve, unless you mean one of the following:

1. Set the bets to be "taken at SP" after the off (this is called bet persistence).
2. Match the bets at the current available price (it won't be SP though).

Please suggest your own explanation in case neither of the above fits.

Hello!

Please see the triggers attached. Use the constants to adjust the settings of the triggers.

Note that cancelling the bets right before the off and changing their persistence to "take SP" is worse than placing the bets with the "take at SP" persistence right from the start. Both achieve your goals of matching the unmatched bets at SP after the off, but cancelling the bets and re-placing them removes them from the matching queue and decreases their chances of getting matched at better prices. I set the bets to be taken at SP from the start, but if you insist on cancelling them and placing at new lay prices, let me know.

Make sure you have tested the triggers in Test Mode.
