    You cannot execute betfair bot on a closed market. On the other hand you can run a bot on an open market and override EndExecution method, where you can check whether the market is really closed and then do whatever you want to.

    The EndExecution method is call as well when market is stopped or bot execution is finished, therefore you need to check: if market.MarketStatus = MarketStatus.Closed

    My bot example is in F#, but you can write your bot code in any .net programming language. Use LINQ to implement similar code like I used in my F# code.
