Refreshing the market odds

Here by ticking the 'Refresh Every' you can select how often you want to Bet Angel to refresh and update the market odds and information.
If you are 'using exchange streaming', prices and bet changes are pushed to Bet Angel from Betfair as soon as they occur on the exchange; by choosing Refresh Every 'update' the trading screen will be updated as soon as those changes arrive. If you wish to set the screen update frequency to a fixed interval then there are many settings to choose from, ranging from every 20ms to once a minute.
If you are not using exchange streaming in the Communications settings, then you will be 'polling' the information from betfair and this Refresh Every setting determines how often Bet Angel calls Betfair’s servers for the most up to date market data and updates the screen. The fastest polling refresh rate is 200ms.
There is no perfect or recommended refresh period. If you refresh too quickly then the market can seem a little more erratic and you may find yourself being too reactive.  Just modify the setting and find a refresh rate that feels comfortable for the type of market and your style of trading.
TIP; Guardian uses its own independent 'Refresh' rate separate to the one used here so can be set to a different 'Refresh Rate'. If you are running advanced automation we recommend always setting the fastest possible rate of 20ms within Guardian
