Stop Loss Back Bet
« on: 27 Oct 2013, 09:13 »

Is it possible to have a trigger which will place a back bet in play on a runner that i have layed?

Ive been trying today to get one working, where i lay the fav, then if the back price for that runner goes to say 1.20 during the race then the back trigger fires to ease a bit of the loss.

Ive tried many times today, but i only end up backing whichever runner goes to 1.20 first, regardless of if it was the one i layed or not.

Thanks for any advice!

Found this program last week, having a bit of fun with it!

hi and wellcome to the forum
add this condition to your backing trigger.

and selections lay matched is greater than 0

this will only place a back bet on the selection that has a lay bet matched.
