In this video tutorial you can see how to setup a football strategy for trading a draw. Used bots: Place bet, Close position, If profit then else, Football bot executor, Chain execution on selection. Used tools: Bot Executor, Betfiar Coupons - Football, Execute my strategy on selections. Read this forum article for more details.
Once you create your betfair bot you want to run it on some market selection. If a bot operates on more market selections or executes its action bot on particular selection then all you need to do is to open a betfair market and start your bot on it.
In this video I will show you how to run/start a betfair bot using Bfexplorer PRO
In this video I will show you, how I created betfair bot that is able to filter markets by name and how I used it to execute a trading strategy on associated market. Later you can see how I used the tool: Trade opportunity lookup, to execute my trading strategy on all today's UK horse racing markets on betfair.
Yesterday I read Paul R. blog and his article Planning the Development of a Bot. It is good to see other software developers writing about betfair bot development.
Bfexplorer is not only trading platform for betfair but bot development platform as well. If you are familiar with any .NET programming language you can use Bfexplorer BOT SDK to program your own bot. Well that is nice, but what about a common betfair user who is not a software developer or enthusiast programmer? If your bot can be constructed from existing ones then you can use the bot: Chain execution on selection/market.
For instance if you want to create betfair trading bot that would close bet position in profit by hedging when 2 ticks profit is reached, and close position in 3 ticks loss by NET stake, then you can use following bots: Place bet, Close position, Wait for profit or loss on selection, If profit then else, and Chain execution on selection.
Bfexplorer offers more than 40 betfair bots for placing bets, dutching, trading or closing your bet position. Each of these bots offer its own features you can customize by setting bot parameters. In this video I will show you how to create betfair trading bot that will automatically trade back bet for 2 ticks profit offering back bet on better odds, or closing its bet position in 3 ticks loss. Later in this video I will show you how to test this bot in the training mode without risking your own money on betfair.
To execute my trading I will use the bot: Place bet and close position. This bot offers a lot of parameters for setting its behavior when the bot opens its bet position and closing it.
Before reading this article you should watch following video tutorials: Betfair Bot SDK for Bfexplorer PRO2, How to program betfair bots and read this article to learn what you can develop using Bfexplorer BOT SDK: Bfexplorer BOT SDK and what betfair bots you can program in C# or Visual Basic
Bfexplorer PRO supports three types of bots: MarketBot, RunnerBot and LookUpBot. If you want to develop simple bot scripts you can use MyMarketBot and MyRunnerBot. Both these bots support MyBotParameters facility for storing bot parameters and you can execute such bots by using Bot Executor setting for My market bot and My bot.
If you want to add your bot to Bot Executor, you must create a bot assembly implementing IBotExecutor interface. In the Bot SDK solution you can find BfexplorerCommunityBotExecutor project with source code for all bfexplorer community bots. In this project you can find an implementation of LookUpBot as well.
You can start betfair bot development in Visual Studio in any .NET programming language. In this video tutorial I will show you how to create VS project and what bfexplorer assemblies to reference for your bot project.
Our first bot will not place any bet just sends a message to the Output window: Hello Betfair.
In the video you can see how to execute your bot in Bfexplorer PRO 2 and how to debug your bot in Visual Studio.
The Bfexplorer PRO supports bot script development in Visual Basic or C# programming languages. So if you are a familiar with one of those language you can write your own trading and lookup bot scripts. The Bfexplorer PRO has a simple text editor for writing bot scripts, the bot script source code can be compiled so you can check this way if the code you wrote is without errors, but there is no support for debugging nor the text editor has no capabilities offered by integrated development environment like the VS2008 so this editor is suitable only for small changes of code or changing parameters in existing bot scripts. If you want to write more complicated bot scripts you should use Bfexplorer BOT SDK .net trading platform.
In this video tutorial I will show you how to program simple betfair bot Fill or Kill. I will use Bfexplorer BOT SDK and Bfexplorer PRO2 as betfair api .net trading platform on which I will run this betfair bot. All bots are developed on .NET framework in C# programming language.
