Not quick enough
« on: Sat, 02 November, 2013, 14:47 »
I had a trigger working nicely but I found a few things I could tweak to make it more profitable since i have added this new condition it has become too slow.

I need it to back a horse in play when it hits a certain price which it did fine to start with but now I have added this extra condition by the time the price comes around the trigger fires too late and the price has moved again and i lose the bet.

Is there anyway to get the trigger to fire faster or place an unmatched back bet in the market at a set price?

or if somehow the unmatched back bet drops to the best available back price

Use r_ticks

r_ticks(back_price,-5)

Would give you a price 5 ticks below the current back price

r_ticks(back_price,5)

You can work out for yourself :)
