This is a basic Guardian automation file for use on Pre-Race Horse Racing markets.

The purpose of this bot is to alert you if a runners LTP (last traded price) crosses the VWAP (volume Weighted average price).

For those who don’t know VWAP gives the average price a selection/runner has traded at throughout the day, based on both volume and price.
If the VWAP price is shortening, and the LTP price is below this it means the price is likely in a downtrend.
If the VWAP price is lengthening, and the LTP price is above this it means the price is likely in an upwards.

When the LTP crosses over this it could be a sign that the long term trend has now reversed, have a look at the following images of the log and accompanying chart, in the first image you can see in the log the LTP price is trading above than the VWAP so the price should be lengthening

Fast forward 5 minutes and in the next log at 13:39:45 you’ll see the LTP now crosses over and falls below the VWAP, meaning a change in the longterm direction could be about to occur, and below is how that chart looked, I marked on with a black line where the alert would have gone off and your entry could have been.

Remember though this is just one indicator so shouldn't be used just on its own but instead as part of building up a 'bigger' overall picture.


How it Works

The rules become armed 20 mins before the off and will remain active until post time, every 5 seconds a rule will store the value of both the VWAP and LTP.
If during this time the LTP is 10 ticks greater than the VWAP a signal rule will trigger and set a signal named ‘greater’ is set on the selection
Or if the LTP goes 10 ticks less than the VWAP a signal rule will trigger and set a signal named ‘less’ is set on the selection.

Alert rules then use a signal set condition to test that a signal is set (so a price has touched 10 ticks above/below the VWAP) and a stored value condition to test the LTP has now crossed back over the VWAP again.
If that happens and this rule triggers a pop-up alert window will appear on your screen informing you wish selection it was and the direction in which the crossover was breached.

You can then assess the market in front of you and determine what action is best taken

NB, if you would like to have this fully automated and for Bet Angel to place the bets for you upon a crossover then I have created a similar variation of this which will place a back or lat bet depending which way the LTP crosses over the VWAP which you can download this from the following link
viewtopic.php?f=53&t=18384


To use the file just click on the following Alert to VWAP Crossover.baf and this will download it to your computer, then with guardian open on the "Automation" tab click "Import a Rules File" as shown in the image, once imported it will now appear in the drop-down box just above, you can now apply them to any markets you have added into guardian.

Once you have it imported into your Guardian the stake size along with any other aspects of this file can be edited very easily by clicking on "Edit Rules File".

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

TIP

The Stored Values of the VWAP and LTP have both been ‘shared’ so that while the file is applied to markets and running you can also see both displayed on your Ladder screen, for details on how to see them on your ladder screen please see the first half of this post

copy the rule for the alert, and change it to whatever bet you want to place, wether back or lay,
or change the alert rule itself if you dont want to see it.
