In what way would that be automated?
When it hits a certain profit it automatically trades out. I did this on Bet365 with Liverpool but I want to do it on a trading website/platform for individual goals.
OK - so all that really requires is for you to put in an 'out' bet at the appropriate odds and stake. So if you backed 2-1 for £10 @ 9.0 and want to 'trade out' if if £2.50 profit comes available for instance 10x9=90 (your current position) 10+2.50=12.50 (your required lay stake) 90/12.50=7.2(your lay price) The lay bet to make is £12.50 at 7.2odds. Betfair would happily take and keep that lay bet and it would sit there until(if) the market comes your way and match you up. Hey presto you'll have your £10 safe and £2.50 profit locked in whatever the outcome and you can bet on any other scoreline of your choosing and its up to you if you only use the £2.50 profit earned so far to do so. With Bet Angel you would simply click on the green up column where the £2.50 shows and it would do all that working out for you and place the bet. Alternatively BA could be given a simple automation rule to green you up if £2.50 profit or more is available and if you wanted to be fancy your rules could be told to Back say 3-1 for £2.50 if that happens.
Can you explain that in a more simplified manner, preferably one or two words?

OK
I'm completely pissed now, but when I tried to quote your post earlier the text was missing and I had to copy it from the web page. I'm guessing you edited your post before I quoted it but after I visited the page. Luckily I've preserved your advice for Luke to refer to whenever he needs it. :D

Euler, is possible to use BetAngel to automatically trade out individual correct scores based on percentage of the odds. So it I back a teams to win 2-1 or 3-1, each time the odds fall below 50% BetAngel automatically trade out for me?

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

Probably. It sounds complex at first but it's not that difficult to manage your correct scores manually on the Betfair website, you can just use their "What If" feature to see what result you would get before placing any further bets on whatever score. You already got a reply from Jukebox there.

That would involve multiplying by 50% or dividing by 2!
