Backing on the horse with the maximum volume increase
At 10 minutes before the off remember the volume% of each horse in the race.
At 3 minutes before the start back on the selection whose volume% has increased the most.
Green up for 5% of profit as soon as possible (also at In-Play if not before the off), or stop loss at 10% after the market turns In-Play.
Use the following constants to adjust the trigger settings:
|init_mins||When to remember the initial volume, minutes before the start|
|min_vol_growth||Minimum increase in volume %|
|bet_size||Size of the bet|
|max_price||Maximum price of the bet|
|min_price||Minimum price of the bet|
|mins_before_start||When to place the bet, minutes before the off.|
|min_mkt_vlm||Minimum market volume at the initial moment|
|greenup_prc||Green-up profit percentage|
|sl_mins||When to apply stop-loss, minutes since the off|
How this works
Make sure you've set the program to start monitoring events at
mins_before_start + 0.5 minutes before the beginning (see Monitoring Options). In our example, it is 10.5 mins.
At 10 minutes before the off the trigger remembers the volume percentage of all horses:
This strategy focuses specifically on the share of market money, not the absolute value of the money matched on a particular horse. So the second favourite horse could have, let's say, just £500 matched against £2,000 on the favourite, with the total market volume £4,000 (12.5% vs 50%). But if later the second favourite had £600 more in matched bets vs £1000 on the favourite, with the total market volume £6,000, then their respective volume % would be (500+600)/6000 = 18.3% and (2000 + 1000)/6000 = 50%. That gives us an increase of 18.3 - 12.5 = 5.8% and 50 - 50 = 0% respectively. The trigger will back on the second favourite.
This is a similar situation. The volume% at the start of monitoring look like this:
At 3 minutes before the off the second favourite demonstrates a greater increase in volume%:
Later on, it's either a green-up or stop-loss for the backed selection:
To turn off the green-up or stop-loss, just disable the corresponding triggers.
