Hi all,

New to using automation and am trying to set something up but cant quite get it right.

It is regards to the Over 1.5 Goals as a football match starts.
I want to place a lay bet in at the start time of the match, but then for it to have a trailing stop loss following it as the odds increase while the game carries on.

I tried setting this up but it kept putting an offset trade on the back side up ahead of where it was going, but I wanted to have it trailing behind in case a goal went in.

I sat there and tried it manually, so I right clicked on the lay side as the price increased, however, a goal went in and it didn't take me out of the trade, I saw it just continued without greening.

Any help would be appreciated as I have looked at Guardians rules and parameters and cant quite get it right, if indeed this is possible.

If you enable fill/kill that will stop any offset being placed before the opening bet is matched, but I wouldn't bother with a trailing stop in football markets, following a goal the price will reform at new odds any trailing stops will be left unmatched usually well away from the new price.

It's far better to run a green up rule and have it trigger after a goal once the market has reformed, several of the files in the football shared files section will show how to best set this up
