Trigger Help Please
« on: 04 Dec 2012, 14:36 »
Hi, when using a "dutch back" trigger how do you "cap" the amount of liability on the loosing selections.
For example, if i wanted to dutch back (to win £2) 1st and 2nd fav, but only as long as the liability doesnt go over £10?
Thanks for any help,

In a dutch trigger you cannot predict the prices beforehand. You can specify either:
profit target, in which case the liability will be variable
liability, in which case the profit will be variable.
If you attempt to ‘fix’ the ‘variable’ part, the maths are skewed and will result in problems   
Please read the following disclaimer with regards to the information you may request and obtain on our forum. This specifically concerns trigger files and various instructions as to how to implement a strategy.
