Yes I'm using the old betfair site. What is interesting is that BOTH your old and new graphs show the LTP as still being 870, so it appears there is a problem with the new API especially as the LTP on Rory McIlroy did not change on BA for a week (and no doubt not on the new BF site) when thousands were being matched up to and into the 1.6's. A week after the SPOTY shortlist was announced, the LTP eventually corrected itself on Rory, so it is clear and without question that the new API cannot be relied upon for the LTP value.

It also explains as to why the values on IACGMOOH can be different on each of my two PC's when switched on at different times - both of course still being inaccurate when compared to betfair. The only conclusion is that the new API has bugs and requires updating as this problem did not exist under he old API.

To conclude, I would summise that the problem lies with the new BetFair API and not with BAP v1.37.5 so if you could speak with and advise Betfair of this problem it will help us all. Many thanks :)

I trust the API with at millions a week, but don't trust Betfair's web site at all as there are known issues. For example your P&L will differ there due to known errors with rounding which Betfair have not fixed. I trust the API and Bet Angel because I have to shovelling through the money I do.

please then expalin Peter as to why each of 2 PC's are showing different data results for the IACGMOOH screenshots sent to support@beetangel.com last night. If the new API was stable then the info on each PC would always be the same - they are not the same which suggests BetFairs new API is faulty - if you speak with support they will show you the screenshots. I'm looking at the two PC's right now and the net stakes, one-touch green-up button and P&L trading columns are NOT THE SAME!

I trust Bet Angel but I do not trust the new Betfair API as I'm seeing false results on a daily basis.

We are awaiting confirmation from betfair, but it is thought the the new site and API accounts for all aspects of cross matching whereas the old site doesn't. So the new site volumes and prices are slightly more correct than the old.

That explains why we haven't seen them. They need to go to support@betangel.co.uk

If you send us clear and concise information we will happily investigate. We just need to be able to replicate them, then we can investigate them properly.

If there are any issues out there we want to know.

Last nights screenshots email has been re-sent to support@betangel.co.uk - my email program auto chose 'The Bet Angel Team' which had support@betangel.com underneath. If there were no problems with the new API then both laptop screens would always show the same results but they do not as per the screenshots. All open bets were cancelled in the IACGMOOH winner market before taking the screenshots. To repeat, this market has not been partially settled an no runners have been removed from it. Hope they help in at least someone believing what I said the screens all show. I verily believe the problem lies within the new betfair API.
