Suggestions : BAMI - Bet Angel Market Import

Help improve Bet Angel.

Would you like to see BAMI incorporated into BA??

Yes, yes, yes. I've always wanted this included in BA
No, I trade manually and can't see any benefit for me
Not sure - but that's just me -always on the fence!!

in view of the recent spate of account restrictions, due to (potentially) excessive use of practice mode, I think the time has come to seriously review the approach suggested here. Not only would it prevent account restriction, it would bring additional revenue to BA whilst satisfying demand.

It would be good of we had an easy to use piece of software that can import the market streaming data BF offer. I know it's an expensive option but it will allow robust back testing for the average user.

This can be done using LinusP's Betfair lightweight API but not everyone on this forum is comfortable with Python or even programming at all

I have just voted, this would be a brilliant feature for many reasons.

yes from me because if possible I could test some automation without wasting an afternoon trying it when I could be trading, not all of us have the capacity to do both at the same time, testing & trading

No doubting it'd be a useful addition to the software but I'd be very surprised if it would be worth the effort for BA.

32 yes's over 2 years and probably most of those would drop out when faced with Betfair's current charges of £200 per month per sport for worthwhile data before you even consider BA's charges to recover the cost and ongoing cost of development.

I'm not saying we wouldn't entertain it, but I think there are better solutions. But also, you could spend ages backtesting something only to find it never works when in live mode. That's my experience, there is no better tutor than the market itself.
