Hi
I wish to run two triggers one to lay horses and one to back horses, they both work fine on their own but when run
together it seems the stakes are weird. They both have recovery systems and it appears that both triggers stake for the total loss or something like that when in live mode.
Betfair stopped multiple same person accounts in 2013, so could anybody in simple terms explain how I can run two separate instances of MarketFeeder on horse racing at the same time without them interfering with one another. I do know that TheBetEngine has no such issue as I did exactly this in my trial with it. I will however stick to MarketFeeder as it offers so many more potential markets

Hi
There is lots of discussion about virtual / separate banks. Here is some info in this link, and there is also a trigger kindly posted up by mcbee which you might be able to modify.

Hi
Looking through the suggested items, just a quick question does the same problem arise if I run
two instances of MarketFeeder one on horse racing and one on football?

Hi
In test mode, no, because each instance has it's own test bank and statement.
Using real funds, yes, because your betfair account and statement is common through all instances, and win / lose variables are derived from the statement.

Hi
With BetEngine it only covers horse racing and greyhound racing whereas MarketFeeder has many more
soccer, tennis etc.
