hi all,
i am new to trading and new on this platform.i wrote a simple rule and applied it to the markets. i made a significant loss, can someone help me write the rule properly please?
i noticed that, for every market, there was one selection of a horse that will have a loss (showing red) with specific amount. all the rest of the horses will have the same amount in green. i believe the green was the amount i earned, which in all except one were smaller than the red. i need the rule to make the green amount bigger than the red amount.
please help, experienced traders.

Thank you. i have attached the .baf file and the excel results sheet.
I haven't looked at the rules in your .baf as there are other better suited to let you know the best way. My only input would be, if there was something that was losing, flip the rules over and see if it's becomes profitable. (easier said than done as comms eats into the wins, but worth a shot)

It's not the just the commission that kills it, its the spread.

1.60 - it played up in the stalls just before the off which is why it was so much higher than where the majority of the money was traded.

That's always a posibility in the stalls, i was just about to be filled so hit the Take Sp button jic. Nice little suprise when things resolved.
