Percentage Offset

April 22, 2019
TGT does not have a feature that does exactly what you say but that doesn't mean it can't do what you need ;)

%offset is basically a tick offset where you know the % of each tick in relation to your stake and the price of entry. You can easily do the math, program it in a excel spreadsheet or, ultimately if you really hate math, place a first bet of say £10 at your desired price of entry, visually count how many ticks give you 50% profit and how many for the 150% loss, close that bet, set up the "tick offset" and "stop loss" at the "staking & tools" feature and place your intended bet.

If you don't know where "Staking & tools" are: right click TGT header, "Show/Hide"->"Staking & Tools".

Hope this helps.

Good trades!

Placing a lay stop-loss order with no back bet on Betfair.

Hi Martin!

Never used it for that particular purpose but I think you will love it: right click TGT header "Show/Hide"->"Multibet tool".

Test, run and enjoy.

does Geeks Toy work with OrbitExchange (Whitelabel of Betfair) as well ?


Alt F4 to close markets makes geeks toy not able to open new ones.

April 18, 2019
Very interesting. Never used ALT+F4 before.

I was able to replicate that.
Even the "show ladder" option disappears. The market stays open but looks like the form fails to initialize but TGT assumes it is open.

Did some testing and the same happens with grids. If you altf4 the ladder it is unable to restart a ladder, if you altf4 a grid the happens to grids.

Def something to look at.

Meanwhile I would suggest that you don't use the Alt+F4 ;)

BetDeq - Cheltenham showing as being in Australia

I believe that TGT only parses the info that the api sends, so probably it is happening because of something betdaq did (ie: different country code). May be wrong.

Crazy moves in greyhound markets!

Looks pretty standard for a low liquidity bot infested market :D. The ones with sharper moves are those with less liquidity, the ones with most volume are quite stable (but only a couple minutes before the off).

Australian Government Reviewing In Play Gambling

April 12, 2019
You know, interesting things are happening in other countries as well. As I read here , in 2006 the USA introduced the laws that made payments processing between its residents, gambling websites and banks unlawful. And I think, that's the real reason why they consider gambling illegal is the limitation, made by their laws. Recently I've seen many pieces of information about the legalization of gambling in some US states. So, it's about some revolutionary things to happen, IMO.

Problemas com GeekToy, trava mercado e video não consigo operar nessa altura

April 7, 2019
Boa tarde.

Não sei exactamente o que poderá estar a causar isso, nunca me aconteceu e uso o Toy há 10 anos. Antes de mais, se alterar as configurações da API não ajudou sugiro retorná-las aos valores originais.

É possível fazer o teste tendo o Gestor de tarefas aberto para perceber a utilização do CPU e memória pelo processo do Geeks, e outros, no momento dos bloqueios?

Hi there Lukas.

It is hard to understand what is really happening. Could you please be more clear or/and send pictures?

Are you saying that the markets don't even open? Any of them? Only horse racing?
