Bugger, now Man Utd have equalized lol

Does anyone set cash out commands and just stick to them? With the Liverpool trade I probably would have traded out for a loss as Everton scored first but as I was out I just left it and it made a profit. If I left this match I would have made a higher profit.
Wow that's frustrating, I was convinced Man U would win to and Newcastle would score. If I stayed in both the 2-1 and 3-1 would have hit the target.

But bloody BetFair is so inflexible that it only allows me to set a profit target for the all final scores. I don't want that. I want to set profit targets for each score. I have tried this in the past using BetAngel but the software is so confusing to use and when I tried the support they just didn't understand what I was trying to do. Are there any other trading websites which have automatic trade out?
Yes, I can see it is Betfair's fault for not having the right buttons, BA's programmers for not designing simple software, BA's customer support for not understanding what you were trying to do, but certainly not your fault for finding the software confusing.

There is another website that has automatic trade out. It's anotherwebsite.com just go to the automatic trade out section. :)

Do you even read any of the comments in your own thread? You seem to plough on completely oblivious to any comments anyone makes.
I've just PMed a couple of members saying that's what I think is happening, but now I'm wondering why I bothered when I can just post comments about Luke here - he doesn't read them. :lol:

It's completely bizarre, but also quite insulting, to pose a question and to not engage with any of the answers whatsoever. Such a shame too to disregard so much quality advice. Really strange.

Is there a simple way I can set trade outs for separate scores? I just knew Man Utd would win and Newcastle would score. I should have held on.

If you're just gambling on an outcome then i think most bookies have a 'win and btts' market.

Hi,

I am not gambling on the outcome. I traded out of Liverpool to win 2-1 and I wanted to trade out of Man Utd to win 2-1 and 3-1. Automatically.

If you knew Man Utd would score you should have just back Man Utd and then you won't need BA, Betfair buttons or this forum. :)

For everyone else's benefit, this is why I Derek drove me off this forum last time.

He knows full well what is going on. I wanted to back Man Utd to win 2-1 and 3-1 but trade when I hit a profit target. But Man Utd won 4-1. So I follow Derek's 'advice' I could have made a profit, but a fraction of the profit of trading out the correct score.

So for everyone elses benefit I hope this poses as an example of I would like nothing more than to block Derek and use this forum focus on what I am looking to achieve.

He's got form on that, see the end of this thread (it's probably entertaining from the beginning). :)
