Strategy/Bot Executor Update Intervals

When using Strategy/Bot Executor, with Update Interval set, for example, to 10 seconds, if I schedule a bot to place a bet when 1-0 is scored, as Live Scores are independent from Betfair data readings, will that bet will be also placed with a up to 10 seconds delay ? And if I use a BeTheFirstInQueue bet, will it also wait up to 10 seconds for the next Betfair data reading to be placed ?

    I can understand only what is asked, not what you think.

    Just common sense when we are talking about number of api calls to betfair api, to minimize you need to monitor as less as markets as needed using reasonable update interval.

    I do not know on what markets you run your strategy, or what exactly you do, so how could I advise?

    Graf, asked:

    “It could make some sense not to make so many calls until the first goal is scored and there is no active bet and most of all if the match ends 0-0. Am I right?”

    So I can only understand that he executes his strategy on football/soccer markets.

    Bfexplorer does not implement adjustable update interval, I mean feature that bot will automatically switch update interval for some markets that is the role of bespoke betfair app developed exactly for customer needs.

    In this post:

    I described such tool for football trades who use match details, score, time, some statistics to decide if they open market/s, and trade on them.  

    This tool updates market data only for in-play markets in 5 seconds interval.

    That seems a very good tool for football trading. Wouldn't it be possible to include/use some of these parameters on a Football Bot ? Or at least the Red Cards information that can change the whole course of a match ?
