Guardian - Watch Lists

 
Concept
 
The Guardian Watch List allows you to add markets stored in Guardian or a subset / custom list of those selected markets to a dedicated list. This list can be viewed in a smaller window and pinned on top of other windows. This enables you to quickly view multiple markets across multiple sports and quickly change between them without switching to the main Guardian screen.
 
 
Usage
 
Guardian allows you to have up to 5 of these watch lists at any one time, you may wish to populate each with a different sport or have one to keep a eye on the markets you have automation running on - the choice is yours!
 
There are two ways to add markets to a watch list:
-     Sync the watch list with the list of markets currently in Guardian
-     Add selected markets individually to a watch list
 
 
The easiest way is to keep the sync box ticked as in the image above. Click on ‘Display the selected Watch List’ to open a window with the selected markets displayed.
 
Once a watch list is displayed you can then quickly change the market displayed in Bet Angel to your choice market simply by clicking on a price. Note that this will not place a bet. You can also change to the one click screen or ladder interface for each market by clicking on the Bet Angel ‘B’ or the ladder symbol above each market.
 
 
Each Watch List then has other options in use.
 
 
The most popular option is the drawing pin. Click on this to ensure the watch list remains on the screen at all times. You can then move it to a convenient place on the screen.
 
The menu items allow you to configure some of the options within each Watch List such as removing suspended markets, how the markets are sorted what details are displayed from each market and even how the mouse interacts with the Watch List.
 
The selection of horizontal lines allows you to hide all selections, show only the first selection, show the first three selections or show the entire market. You can also choose these options with each individual market.
 
Over to the right of each market name you will see the time indicated when the market was last updated by Guardian.
 
Here you can see the bottom market showing a tennis game between Djokovic v Berdych has not updated since 12:33:36 – much later than the other markets.
 
 
This is because the Guardian refresh window has been set in Guardian and this market is not refreshing as part of the main Guardian cycle.
 
However, to quickly refresh this market all you need to do is move the mouse over this area. The market data will populate with the latest price and other information from Betfair. This behaviour can be toggled on or off under the ‘Options’ menu item.
 
 
At the bottom of each watch list you can see the market count. In the example above we can see 5 markets. The figure over to the right of this is the overall profit and loss of the markets contained within that particular watch list.
