Author Topic: [TR] Simple Trigger To Apply Market Criteria To External Selections  (Read 1071 times)

Hi There,

I cannot get my head around the triggers and the one I am struggling with at the moment is simply applying a favourite rank and price to a list of my own selections

All I would like to be able to do is input my selections from a file into Market Feeder Pro and for those selections only, place a back bet if they are the first or second favourite and their price is between 2 and 6.  So the trigger would need a bet amount, be able to check my selection from my input file against the back market at the planned start time, place the bet if the selection (or selections) are 1st or 2nd favourite and their price is between 2 and 6.

Sounds simple to me but I can work out how to ensure it only applies to the selections I have input and have it allow first or second favourite at a specific point in time - I can only find 1 position at a time.

here is your trigger,in the constants you can set.
Bet amount
Minimum back price
Maximum back price
Minutes before the start time to place the bets

you will need to give the trigger the location of your selections file/list, the names have to be written exactly as they appear on the mfp/betfair screen, i have included a file for you to check.

please use test mode until you are happy with your settings


download the trigger and file below

Hi McBee,

I am having problems with the software and cannot test it at the moment.  I keep getting access violations (whatever that means) and then the program hangs.  I have logged a ticket so hopefully I can get that resolved and then test it.




Please note, BetFair is seems to be currently OFFLINE
