This servant is for use on any market but as with any form of stop loss it more suited to the pre-off markets.

The purpose of the servant is to allow you to place a back or lay bet with a trailing stop without the need of an offset bet from the global setting area.
There are two servants to download from the bottom of this post, one for placing back bets with a trailing stop into the market the other for when placing lay bets with a trailing stop.

Once downloading they are best used by assigning them to keyboard shortcuts.
Ie, you could assign the back bet servant to your ‘B’ key and your lay bet servant to your ‘L’ (assuming you’re not already using these keys as shortcuts).

Both servants use the ‘servant context stake’ staking method, (the stake you have selected for that selection on your ladder or one-click screen).
To use either one simply point your cursor at the price you want to place your bet at and start the servant to place your bet, after the bet is matched if the price moves 5 ticks against you a stop will trigger and green up your trade, each time the price moves a tick in your favour the stop will trail behind just the same way as the regular global settings trailing stop loss does.

As the servants use a ‘Shared’ Stored Value you can also display the odds were the trailing stop will trigger using a custom column on your one-click screen or on your ladder. The shared stored value name you need to enter is ‘stop’ for the selection

The following page shows how to display a stored value on the ladder and one-click screen

How it works

Each time the servant is started it will and place a bet and store two stored values named ‘Price’ & ‘Stop’,
The 'Price' Stored value will store the price the bet was placed at
The 'Stop' Stored value will store the price +5 ticks (or -5 ticks when using the lay bet servant) from where the bet was placed at

Once your bet is matched each time it moves in your favour a tick and trades at a new high/low the rule 'Store Trailing price' will Trigger
and will store the value name 'stop' again with the price +5 or -5 tick effectively this is your trailing stop moving as the price does.
It will also restore the stored value named 'price' so it knows where the new high/low is.

To use these servants just click on the ASC Back with Trailing Stop and ASC Lay with Trailing Stop.Baf attachment links below and this will download them to your computer, then open your Servant Manager window and click the rules link at the top and then "Import a Rules File" as shown in the image, once imported it will now appear in your dropdown boxes and is ready to be started whenever required.

Once you have it imported into your Servant Manager it can be edited very easily simply by clicking on "Edit Rules File".

With any servant always run in practice mode first to ensure everything is working fine, and repeat this each time you make any changes.

See the following thread for step by step instructions on downloading and importing a servant into your Bet Angel, or see image below on were to import it in your Servant Manager.

Tip

To change the number of ticks for the trailing stop when you open the rules editor select the following two rules one at a time
Store Entry Price
Store Trailing Price

and go onto the ‘stored value’ tab of each and select the stored value named 'stop' and change the number of ticks from the default 5 to whatever the number of ticks trailing stop you wish to use.

Thanks for this Dallas, I want to try it but when I went to import it I was given a message that my version of BetAngel was different to the one this was created for.

Do you think this would work by placing the draw on a football market as the price comes in before a goal is scored and a late goal then profit also early goal maybe small loss. Thoughts please
