Peculiar goings on with my trigger
« on: Sun, 27 July, 2014, 18:08 »
Hiya all.
I have some strange things going on with my trigger that I need to get to the bottom of.
I have been placing back bets on Correct Score 2 markets tying to get the best price.
My trigger places a bet just below the current lay price, then cancels and re-backs if the lay price drops below my unmatched bet.

The trouble I am having is if there is no money on the lay side. Money will then begin to trickle in on the lay side but the triggers won't fire.
If I then refresh the trigger it will begin to work.
If there is already money in the market on the lay side when I load the markets it works perfectly.
Any ideas folks
If this is the market when I load it up it won't work when money appears unless I refresh the triggers.

If the market load like this then all is fine.

If there is money already in the market and then it disappears then reappears the. The trigger won't fire.

enable logging .. I think when triggers get an error the first time the stop firing.

Adding a condition should also do the trick. (and selections lay price > 0)
Fortune favors the brave!

Thanks for the response.
I already have the lay price >0 which doesn't seem to help.
I will look into the logging thing when I fire up the PC tomorrow :)

hi
you need to set the trigger to no more than 60
conditions
and selections lay price is greater than 1.01
and selections back matched is equal to 0
and selections back unmatchched is greater than 0
with your other conditions

the problem you have is your trigger will activate once per selection/market (whatever you have set the trigger) and it will not try again.

Do you mean 60 seconds ?

and selections back unmatchched is greater than 0
with your other conditions

Are you sure this is right?
If I set "back unmatched" greater than 0 then the trigger won't fire if there are no unmatched bets ??

your trigger should be set to about 60 secs, this gives the bets placed to be recorded by the triggers/bot from betfair.

there should be an unmatched bet from your betting trigger, so to cancel a bet, there has to be an unmatched bet.
