Get the amount offered for any price
« on: 17 Jun 2013, 01:40 »
Hi,

Is it possible to retrieve the amount offered for any price? Not just the 3 best offered?

I know I can see it in the ladder mode but what if I wanted to get the amount that is on a certain price in a trigger?

Thanks,

Whitey
Yeah! :p

The ladder only shows you the mount at that price at a given moment. Your ability to get that price is determined by your place in the queue for that price when it becomes the "trading price".

You just set the back mount and back price in your trigger and hope to get that bet matched. When it is matched, it will be different people's money and the market will have  changed greatly since you first saw that price.

Hi,

I know that, but I just wondered if I could get a trigger to tell me how much money is on offer on a certain price without having to look in the ladder interface? I know that price isn't the current odd or "trading price".

Thanks,

Yeah! :p

Hi
Unfortunately at the moment there is no variable that will return what you are asking.
There is a variable: traded_{price} which returns the volume traded (matched) at {price}, however it requires the ladder to be open on the selection being traded, which makes it cumbersome to use.

Hi MarkV,

"at the moment"... does that mean that in future releases it could be added? Can I request it, if so where can I do it?

Thanks,

Whitey
