geeks toy keeps jamming

17. June 2018 - 16:20
For some reason geeks toy keeps jamming. It has happened four times in a row now and each time i have to shutdown my laptop. It is happening on each UK horse race im trying to scalp pre race on practice mode. If i was using live mode i would be loosing money because of this.

Betfair historical data- how to turn the files into spreadsheeets or charts?

14. June 2018 - 22:51
The files you can download from Betfair come in tar.bz2 files and in json format and need to be parsed apparently. How can I do that? I downloaded a month's worth of free files to see what they look like and there's 10's of thousands of files all in what looks like computer language. I'm not a programmer, so I'm not sure how to go about parsing them. Cheers.

query on data stats

11. June 2018 - 11:41
Hi guys I'm looking on the geekstoy app but i don't see anywhere where i can pull stats of how the prices moved (even if it's for the current days races). I would like to get data with price intervals of like 1 second to check how the prices moved. Is there some way i can do this with yourselves?

Regards
Simon

Windows 10 - Task View

29. May 2018 - 14:55
Seem to have found a solution - so any window that sticks to the screen and is visible on every virtual desktop set, make sure you are on the virtual desktop you want the window to be visible on. right click and select 'show on taskbar'

I also have freezing. it's betfair again I think. I disabled stream prices, I will activate it again tomorrow maybe they will fix it until then

RUK and Betfair Live Stream

24. May 2018 - 13:11
Hi Guys,
I use the Betfair live stream for my racing pictures.
No problem - except size.
I do a £5 scratch trade and I'm good to go.

I was thinking of getting Racing UK on a separate TV, on my desk.

Problem:
I have Sky main box in the lounge plus multiscreen box in the bedroom.
My flat is served by a communal dish and only two feeds per flat.
My landlord won't stump up for a different dish to enable Sky Q to be received.
I can't put RUK on my lounge TV (near my desk), as my wife is watching all her.......stuff.

Do I run a cable from my bedroom Sky box to my desk in the lounge, use a splitter, and connect to a new TV on my desk?
Or, if subscribed to RUK, could I not increase the size of my live stream picture, on my PC monitor?
My block of flats has been wired by Sky and I can't change the supplier.

How does everyone else receive RUK and what are the setups?

Enjoy !!!

Might be time to start a new thread here highlighting a few trades, anyone interested? I personally have not been on here much over the last couple of years but thought about a little blast coming back

Can't view Betfair live feed in Geeks Toy

22. May 2018 - 14:20
This is my first post, so hi!!

Just got into GeeksToy and been trying to set up my profile for my new venture into this Betfair trading lark but was having issues getting the Betfair live feed to work. Whenever I clicked it, it would just display a blank screen. I managed to resolve this issue today and so just wanted to give people a heads up in case they were experiencing the same issue......not sure if this is the correct section to put this in so if needed, moderators please move it where it would be most appropriate.

I just learned that GT uses IE11 and Flash as its base, so if Betfair live feed works in IE11 then all should work in GT. But if you are like me, you hate IE and never use it and always use Chrome, or some other alternative! So, it wasn't until today that I tried to view the live feed through IE11 and found out that the Betfair Exchange site wouldn't even load in IE11, let alone play any video through it! Any flash issues were eliminated as this is installed and working correctly on my system.

Some digging later and I found out that my issue was likely to be due to Compatibility settings:

https://support.betfair.com/app/answ..._id/436/c/483/

I went to the IE settings and then "compatibility view settings", and then unticked the "display intranet sites in compatibility view" box and I can now view Betfair live feed in GT!!

So, if you have IE11 with Flash installed and working and are still not having any luck, try this fix!

All the best,
Ace

Traded volume colour

19. May 2018 - 15:00
Is it possible to change the trading volume shaded colour/last 30seconds traded volume on the ladder interface?

Is this possible within GeeksToy?

8. May 2018 - 23:54
Hi traders, first post here. I can't seem to find the answer to this so hopefully you guys can help me.

What I want:

Lay an entire market for the day (football) - every match
Lay both teams (football)
Lay with set odds and stake
Keep in-play

Or, do I have to go into each match individually and place my parameters?

Thanks.

Need information on bitcoin

26. April 2018 - 11:47
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and global payment system three it's for the first decentralized virtual forex because the device works without an imperative bank or single administrator. Once you own bitcoins, they possess value and trade just as if they were nuggets of gold in your pocket. You can use your bitcoins to purchase goods and services online, or you can tuck them away and hope that their value increases over the years. Bitcoins are traded from one personal 'wallet' to another.

Betfair Reported Abuses / Stolen Money From Users Accounts

19. April 2018 - 22:12
Hello,

I've registred today in this forum to inform the whole community what Betfair is doing to steal money from users accounts.

Two days ago I had over 4k in my account. Today I've got zero and I didn't lose any bets.

In my account balance Betfair posted "Fix 15" and debited over 1k yesterday.

They also debited "premium charges" over the money they debited without any reason. Just "Fix 15".

They told me they "don't know" match, date or bets this "Fix 15" refers to.

Today they repeated the operation and debited all the money left on my account.

Again this "Fix 15" and no information whatsoever about the reason or any details of these debits.

They say they "don't know" and violate the same Terms and Conditions they created themselves.

I asked about the premium charges they debited from my account over my winnings (that they also debited) and they also told me it's their "traders" who decide and they have no information about their "reasons".

This happened not only to me but to many other users who also reported these same abuses in other trading and betting forums

It shows clearly that they have their own traders on the markets, placing bets without any "countdown" (all other users have to wait 5, 7 and even 12 seconds for their bets to be placed and they place their bets with zero seconds countdown) and when they lose their bets, they simply take the money from the winners accounts without any notice or reason.

Everyday there's less liquidity on the markets, which may be also a clear sign people are quitting from trusting their money to Betfair because of all these reported criminal abuses.

This is totally devastating and I wanted to know if this ever happened to any of you and how did you react and/or managed to recover your stolen money.

Thanks for your help in trying to understand what in the hell is happening here.

Setting up geeks toy

Hello,

I have re-joined after many years away and would appreciate some set up help if possibe.

My idea is to do this on football markets befre kick off.

What i am hoping to achieve is to place my back bet, hoping to get matched at the current lay price.

I would then like to have my lay bet for the same stake matched 1 tick lower.

If the price drifts after i am matched i would like to hedge my bets for a loss.

If my lay bets are not matched 1 minute before kick of then i would like to hedge for a loss rather than go into play unmatched.

Is it possibe to do this on Geeks Toy ?

Thanks
