i'm very new to this so I think I am missing something blooming obvious here ....lol
got bot set up in Guardian and working how I want it but always coming out zero p/l after betting
it backs horse then if it drifts by so many points
it has offset set and if it drifts lays it off
but the amounts are = 0 p/l
what I would like to know is how do I set it to lay the horse back when it drifts and make a % of my stake as profit or a set amount of profit
I imagine to you guys its pretty obvious but I can't get my head round it :? :? :? :oops: :oops:
for e.g

Bullingdon 2.94 2.00 Back -2.00
Bullingdon 2.74 2.00 Lay 2.00
Back subtotal: -2.00
Lay subtotal: 2.00
Market subtotal: 0.00
Commission : 0.00
Net Market Total: 0.00

You're not greening up (spreading your profit equally across all selections), instead your only 'closing the trade'
Brief example; viewtopic.php?f=47&t=11408

In the rules editor on your parameters tab change 'offset bet'
to 'offset bet with greening'

that will do it
