Y, it's essentially gap filling. I just went back to stuff I was doing right in the early days and re-applied it to Greyhounds as the markets are very gappy. Two major things have changed since I last looked at Greys seven years ago. First is XM is applied and the second is SP, so that's helped on this occasion I reckon.
Awesome :D

How has SP helped you now?

Just as a safety feature. Sometimes it's difficult to exit a market properly before the races start.

Does it have a preference on having the back of lay filled first?

Ah fair enough thought it would be that but just wanted to clarify :D

Fantastic results PW, is this Greybot done in Guardian or using an excel sheet?

Hi All,
I'm still a real novice at trading and have only read about various automation threads as yet. I find that in general the people here are very helpful and supportive of each other and that displaying their achievements serves as encouragement to others (IMHO). it's a shame though that not all is as it seems at times.
I have three goals at present; to develop my skills trading manually, to get to grips with successful automation and finally to develop a bot to filter out the cons. from the real. the third I will make available to all but in the meantime I will continue to read the threads, watch the vids and learn as much as i can.
regards
Dave D.
p.s.
Peter i think you previously mentioned that you run 2x grey bot strategies, do you select different classes of race accordingly for each bot or do you have to have 2x BA accounts to run both systems on all applicable races?
many thanks in advance.

Whilst I commend you for your intentions of developing a bot and making it available to all, as you will see when you read through the threads, trading is all about having an edge. Thus, if 200 people all do what you are doing, then there will be no edge anymore.

That being said, I think your thought process is sound - if you spend time in the markets manually, you'll then be able to see how it behaves and from there, a platform on which to try some automation.

Best of luck,

Iambic

Hi Iambic,
thanks for your support, i'm sorry if i have misled you in any way but my third goal of making a bot to find the cons from the real was a silly stab at sarcasm to exclude the 'fake' or not screen shots shown in this and previous threads of P&L etc and following posts. For people like myself, who are still trying to learn and may be a bit more easily fooled, when the topics go off piste from the true intention of the thread it turns into a total waste of time spent from what they intended to do.
Any advice, support and hints (as you said giving away your edge is useless) are most welcomed.
thanks for the reply
kind regards
Dave D.
