cancelling other close positions automatically after get matched

February 15, 2017

I was wondering if, as I'm new to this, I'm missing some configuration.
I have the following situation, e.g.:

I have a back position @4,5 and 2 lay positions, @4,2 and @4,0. I want that the software cancel all remaining lays after the first get fully matched, is it possible?

Thanks in advance,

Chasing ze dream. My road to making money or dying out.

Hi everyone,

I'm very new to betfair trading, I started out match betting, the moved to arbing, then became interested in betfair trading a month ago. I bought some of Caan Berry's videos, am taking in as much as I can and have started pre race trading. I've also watched hours of trading on youtube. I have started with a bank of £300 and am using £25 stakes. I'm a student and so can only really trade at the weekend, although I might be able to make it home for a few races during the week if I'm lucky. My first goal is to go from 300 to 1k. I think its realistic. I'm going to give trading a year of my time to see if I can become consistent. My main rule, is to never go in play and never let a lay bet run.

I started on Saturday and unfortunately was -£10, I put it down to being the first ever day I traded. I pretty much traded for 6 hours and went through 30 races. I think there are too many races to put on here, my profit and loses go into 4 pages. Last night I watched certain videos again and today traded about 12-13 races, again I was about -£12. However I felt like I had learned more and was better at picking situations that would go my way. I just got nailed 3 or 4 times heavily when the price jumped 4-5 ticks not in the direction I wanted. One specific race nailed me for -£8. Here are today's stats.

stop loss market making

February 11, 2017
doesnt seem possible to change the values in the xml file to "last traded price -1" on the stop loss.
i dont want it to take the price thats there but offer 1 or 2 ticks below even if that means risking not being matched...
with my strategy im just giving away too much value by just taking the given price, is this not possible?

thank you

Without knowing more details, it sounds like the price rapidly changed on the selection you placed the back bet on.

You can contact support with more details if you wish.

Newbie Please Help :)

February 9, 2017
Hi Everyone,

Fellow Geek here !

I am getting used to the Toy, but have a few questions if anyone can help please :)

1) Can your stop loss stake be set to exceed your backing stake - E.g if back something at £2 can you have a £3 lay ?

2) How do you increase stop loss on windows 10, if possivle, I have seen it for Vista and Windows 7.

Thank you for your help :)



February 9, 2017
Sorry, this may have been answered elsewhere, but...

are they any plans in the pipeline for the Toy to incorporate Betfair's streaming prices? As I understand it it would allow for refreshes down to 20ms (could be wrong) rather than the current 200ms

Thanks! :D

No there isn't.

Alternative a ?

February 7, 2017
Ciao ragazzi,

Sarò breve. Non riesco a fare trading su perché praticamente non ci sono soldi nel mercato. Avete alternative per ? Avete un modo di creare un account sul .com e usare una VPN o qualcosa del genere ? Qualcuno riesce a fare del trading in un altro sito ?
Aiuto ?
