Multiple Strategies | Same Markets | Real Mode
« on: Sat, 10 February, 2018, 11:02 »
Hi all,

I want to run a number of different trigger files on a single live account using multiple instances of MFP.

Is there any general best practice or commands to stop the triggers interfering with each other?

For example I have one backing strategy, and one back-and-greenup. How can I stop the greening up strategy from closing out the liability on the backing strategy?

Cheers!

Hello!

Sorry for the late response.

Unfortunately, there is no way for the triggers to not interfere with each other, so using different staking plans on the same real-money account is strictly advised against.
Always try your triggers in Test Mode before switching to real money!

hi
sorry to jump in , but if you have 2 systems , you can use the triggers to only accept that another trigger bets on , but we would need to see your triggers and you will have to use the make me a trigger to request a new trigger.

Another potential workaround I considered is to use different instances of the program

  • One to write the selections of any given strategy to a txt file, and tag each with the relevant strategy using the imported_1 etc operator
  • Another with all selections disabled by default which executes the bets and manages the staking, by using different triggers per strategy that is each conditional upon the presence of a specific imported_ value.

On which point, I believe there may be a slight bug in the Import Selections For Auto Trading function. I'm using a trigger to write a long list of selections to the .txt file that another instance of the program is importing from. I'm then using Dropbox to manually delete selections that I don't want to bet on, so that this is sync'd with the machine running MFP. 

Quite often, even though the trigger is set to refresh the file every 5 seconds, it's not picking up the changes - particularly on Day 2+. The manual refresh button has no effect either. However, if I manually re-import the file by re-defining the filepath (to the same file) then the selections are imported no problem

By this, do you mean you set the Import function to reimport the file every 5 sec (see the screenshot attached)?

That's correct Oxa, yes.

I will be testing MF Pro to see if I can reproduce and fix this problem. Thank you for reporting it.
