Troubleshooting / winplace_pdif
« Last post by Gary on 16 May 2022, 14:31 »
Hi

I was trying to use winplace_pdif_60 from a place market to target the price difference in the win market. looking at the logs all the expressions are evaluating as 0

 I have tried writing to a file from the win market which shows a valid figure for pdif_60 so I believe that it is recording it properly

thanks

Triggered betting / Only trade if back is unmatched
« Last post by JP_potts on 16 May 2022, 13:12 »
In my tennis strategy, I make a lay at current odds, and I place an unmatched back at higher odds.

I also have a trigger that makes a back bet at lower odds if certain things happen in the match.

What I would like to happen is the 3rd trade (the back at lower odds) is only executed if the 2nd trade (back at higher odds) is unmatched.

If the 2nd trade is matched, I do not want to execute the 3rd trade.  How would you do this?

I was thinking something like:


But this does not work.

Triggered betting / Re: Can't trade out

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your message.  I have run a few tests and I see what you mean now (I think).

If the P/L on each player is equalisable, it will equalise it like this:

Will be equalised to:


My strategy actually tries to gain a free bet on one side first, then equalise profits later down the line.  So my strategy never trades out when this has been done:


In the case that I have £0 on one side, and profit or loss on the other, how would I go about equalising if I cannot use Trade Out?

Hi
Have a look at tradeout_net which is a selections "live" P/L. So 3x greater than -market_min_pl:
and selections trigger expression tradeout_net is equal or greater than -market_min_pl*3

Triggered betting / Trade out by liability formula
« Last post by SimmoSK on 15 May 2022, 08:10 »
Hello, I've made a basic trigger that trades out the markets liability at low odds on a selection whose profit is greater than the liability. 
What I would like to add is the trigger only starts if the selections profit is 3 times greater the the markets (-market_min_pl) formula.
Could you show me how to add the multiplication into that formula if possible please.

Cheers Mark, I have a profit/loss condition built into some of my triggers so will take some testing.

When placing bets on horses, many bettors rely on various facts about the horse, trainer, jockey, weather, race conditions, etc.

BetFair offers a limited set of horse background data, the so-called Silks, but even that limited information can come in handy if you are using automated bets as part of your strategy.

A horse’s performance in the previous races is tracked in its Form.

We have prepared a P/L forecast for Dutching on horses with certain numbers in their form:

Hi
You can use Activate Trigger / Deactivate Trigger actions. These will activate / deactivate a named trigger or trigger block based on conditions. So you have your 5 trigger (blocks) in 1 trigger file. Obviously need to be careful not to let one trigger interfere with another.

It gets more complicated if you are using P/L or recovery because the various triggers need to reference your statement. This article has some ideas.

Triggered betting / Open or start trigger on market conditions
« Last post by SimmoSK on 14 May 2022, 14:38 »
Hello, I have a few triggers I like to use in horse racing dependent on runners and starting odds.

Is it possible for market feeder to look at a markets selection conditions and automatically load a trigger based on those conditions ?

For example I have 5 triggers I like to use based on 5 different market conditions.

Hope that make sense.
