In-Play Football Trading

Hi,

New member here. I've spent a couple of days in Practice Mode trying to set up similar to what I've noted below but to no avail. I've watched a number of the videos but just can't seem to add the finishing touch. Any assistance as to what video I should be looking at or which bots to use would be fantastic. I only have a couple of main rules. Thanks in advance.

Regards

Neil

    If you want to trigger your action bots by football/soccer match score or time then you must use “Football Bot”.

    Please install the latest version of bfexplorer:

    http://bfexplorer.net/Products/Bfexplorer

    In the old version the Score parameter was mandatory, and you want to trigger by match time only as well.

    First you need to setup your two action bots, to place lay bet on “Over 2.5 Goals” and cash out.

    1)

    Use “Place Bet” bot and set following parameters: AllowPlacingBetInPlay to True (checked) , OfferMyBet to False, BetType to Lay, Stake, ExecuteOnSelection to 2, and name this bot setting: Lay Over 2.5 Goals

    2)

    Use “Close Selection Bet Position At Odds” bot and set following parameters: Odds to 0, ExecuteOnSelection to 2, and name this bot setting: Cash Out Over 2.5 Goals

    3)

    Use “Football Bot” and set following parameters: BotName to: Lay Over 2.5 Goals (use bot dialog to select your action bot, as typing the bot name you can make a mistake), Score to: 0 – 0, MatchTime to: 27, and name this bot setting: Lay Over 2.5 Goals at 27th minute and 0 – 0

    4)

    Use “Football Bot” and set following parameters: BotName to: Cash Out Over 2.5 Goals, MatchTime to: 46, and name this bot setting: Cash Out Over 2.5 Goals at 46th minute

    5)

    And finally to execute your strategy by one bot, use “Execute Bots” to add execute your two football bots, set the parameter BotNames to: Lay Over 2.5 Goals at 27th minute and 0 – 0; Cash Out Over 2.5 Goals at 46th minute (again use Select Bots dialog instead of typing bot names), and name this bot setting: My Football Lay Over 2.5 Goals Strategy (or of course name your bot settings as you like).

    You execute “My Football Lay Over 2.5 Goals Strategy” on selected markets manually or you can use Bot Executor tool.

    Hi Stefan,

    Wow, thanks for your detailed instructions . . . it works perfectly. I doubt I would ever have figured it out! I have made the donation for a month at this stage and will contribute to the forum.

    Thanks Neil, community subscription is automatically prolonged to free subscription after your previous subscription expires (and you are allowed to use the community subscription), then after your donation I must changed your subscription status to Free Professional, please let me know when that happens.

    Well, how to use bots?

    Just try to browse all available bots, and you will find out that bot names suggest the bot functionality, and bot parameters in details describe this functionality.

    For instance from your strategy, the cash out function. Bfexplorer offers this function/feature in bots having Close Position in their name (just type: close to Add a new order/bot dialog search input box to list all such bots).

    I suggested using “Close Selection Bet Position At Odds” bot, as this bot operates on one selection, but you can use as well the bot: “Close Market Bet Position” that closes bet position on entire market, it cashes out all open selection bet positions. The Profit parameter is mandatory one, so if you want to force the bot to cash out at any profit/loss, you must set Profit to 0 and Loss to 0.001, what covers any profit or loss trigger condition.

    Thanks Stefan,

    However, can you please check my status as I now receive an error message when trying to execute a bot . . . "Not Allowed To Use This Tool."

    Thanks in advance.
