Good evening Shaun

A welcome contribution and a fresh pair of eyes always welcome, indeed.
Would you consider exploring this further. If so, I would be interested to know how you get on ...

Good luck
Minnie LAI

Hi All (First Post),

So I've fired up BA on Betdaq and had a go at the dogs.... Is it me or is the lack of liquidity a joke? I've seen Peter sink a grand into BF on the nags quicker than I can get 20p matched on the favorite at the 21:28 in Doncaster.

But seriously, I'm a complete novice so is it me or is Greyhound Trading on Betdaq a pointless exercise other that to learn the functionality of Bet Angel ?

Thanks,

Volume on Betdaq is much lower across all sports compared to Betfair, sometimes it can work in your favour ie, during larger racing meetings. but markets that are relatively low volume on Betfair to start with are almost nonexistent on Betdaq

There is an opportunity there for you to create your own market. Think outside the box.

Early days for me. I just wan't to participate in markets, not make them.

No point in making a market if there's no mugs around to take the poor prices. You can be certain any value prices will be taken though.

I must admit, I was kind of wondering how you could make a market if I can't even get 20p matched. Unless it was a case of placing trades at opposite ends of a range to try and initiate/stimulate a market and hope to take advantage of anyone else who then participates. But, as you say, you're not going to make money being the only person in the market.

Hi Hi dadof2uk

As others have recommended, switch to Betfair Exchange for Greyhound markets, you will have no problem filling an order for 0.20p, regardless of liquidity.

I LIVE test all my works using between 0.01p - 0.10p with liquidity sometimes as low as GBP 50.00 !!! NO problem, like Candy ...

Good luck

Modified my Greyhound bot earlier today and seem to be picking up some crumbs from the market. I usually seal the fate of my automation by making a post like this.

It is very much a case of looking after the pennies :lol:

Needless to say, it went to the dogs.

We try again tomorrow
