Post keeps falling over, trying to copy/paste from iPad.

Am thinking about automation of mainly 2 selection sports, which arms in-running. I have no real idea if it will be profitable .. But am hopeful, if we pick the right entry points, and limit the opportunities to be picked-off, we should be ok. I want to limit the liability to 2.5% or less, if the available betting bank. Per game.

The T20 World Cup has just started, so, it would be good, if someone could build this, pretty soon.

Genetic trading sports bot - in running.

The idea of this bot, is to try and benefit from in-running volatility. T20 Ckt can be pretty volatile, thou, I imagine tennis/darts/snooker might also be vehicles.


Cricket version

Criteria : 1000 bets per hr limit
T20 lasts for 185 mins .. So, send bets from in-play time + 30 secs, to in-play + 140 mins.

T20 is 20 overs a side, to be played in 80 mins .. So, 20 overs * 6 balls an over, = 120 events.

80 mins is 80 * 60 = 4800

If we send 3 bets on the fav, fill or kill after 15 secs, that's 12 per min, or 720 per hr .. Below the limit, to allow for reverse trades etc.

Entry points, sub 1.32, Reverse trade, staggered at 6, 18, and 50 ticks .. If poss, scattered around those exit points.


Mkt turns in play.

2 selections

Send lay bet for 1.2% liab of bank, at 1.32. fill kill after 15 secs, if matched, Rev trade at, 6, 18 and 50 ticks.

Only send lay bets, if last traded price is above, 1.33, and below 1.8

Send lay bet for 0.8% liab of bank, at 1.23, fill kill after 15 secs, if matched, Rev trade at 6,18 and 50 ticks.

Only send lay bets, if last traded price is above, 1.24, and below, 1.6.

Send lay bet for 0.4% liab of bank, at 1.07, fill kill after 15 secs, if matched, Rev trade at 6, 18, and 50 ticks.

Only send lay bet, if last traded price is above 1.08, and below 1.3.

Re-arm bets, after 1 Sec.

Other variables

Back price percentage must be below 102%
Lay price percentage must be above 98%
Traded matched volume above £30k
Rev trade bets, should spread green equally.

If last traded back price is below 1.03, stop firing.
If liab is 3% of bank, something has gone wrong .. Stop.


For kicks/learning purposes, I sorta tried to build something similar. I attach it for entertainment
Purposes only .. It doesn't work (properly), and is probably quite dangerous. I haven't the patience/expertise to get the coding syntax right .. Maybe people can try and build prototypes, we can build upon. If not for free, I will pay.

Once the basic bot is built, we can tinker with the entry/exit points, and adapt it to other 2 selection sports


Can't post baf file from iPad, will get to it later.

% of bank liability can be used in practice mode - by default it looks at a 1k bank for this which i assume is linked to the BA main settings amount you have under Staking liability.

What it wont be able to do thought is calculate different amounts in relation to the balance for each bets so will always be submitted as a % of whatever max liability you have set

Any chance of maybe using fixed stakes without compromising the bank :?:
