I set my trigger to place lay bets between 10 and 15. However, it sometimes places lay bets greater than 15, at 20 for example. Why does it do this?
I understood that if there wasn't the liquidity available between 10 and 15 then it should not place a bet at all.
Is there a way to ensure bets are kept between the parameters?

my stop loss settings says match unmatched bets on these conditions. But none of the boxes are ticked.

Hi
Are you laying at "best" price and using a condition to check lay_price is between 10 and 15. If so look at the setting for laying at x ticks higher than best. Also perhaps check the trigger log to see what happened.

Hi Mark, yes I am usiong best price in conjunction with lay prices between x and y.
I will change this to lay_price and see if this happens again.
