1. I import selections from a text file every day. Is there a way to pre-populate my list with all selections from today’s markets?

Yes, you can use a basic trigger to generate a text file with the list of all selections in your My Markets list.

You can adjust this trigger to leave only the selections you are interested in, such as, add conditions to include only the first three favourites, or only selections with a certain silks form, etc.

2. What is the formula to add £2 to my bet amount after each loss?

Set the “Amount” field of the backing or laying trigger to this trigger expression:

Amount: bet_size + losses*2

Replace bet_size with the size of your initial bet and 2 with any other amount you want to add after each loss.

3. Does the order of trigger conditions matter in MarketFeeder Pro?

Yes, the order of the conditions matters very much!

Conditions often act as filters (or funnels), so the more selections you filter out at the beginning, the easier and faster the next ones will be processed.

Example 1:

The above order is very inefficient. The parsing of trigger expression is a very resource-consuming operation. It is much more reasonable to first check if the status of the market is right. If it is not the case, then no need to check the trigger expression at all. The next one should be the selection's rank, as it is a comparatively simple operation: just to check one integer (selection's rank). So the right order should be:

There are also cases when the order of the conditions may change the actual qualifying selections.

Example 2:

 Example 3:

 

What do we have here?

In Example 2, the conditions will be met if out of the first 5 favourites, there are less than 3 selections priced above 7.0.

In Example 3 though, the conditions will only be true if there are just 2 selections in the market and both are priced above 7.0 (I think such markets just do not exist), because it effectively says "out of the first 5 favourites, there must be less than 3 of them".

4. I place two lay bets of different sizes, e.g. 5 and 10, on the favourite horse before the off. How do I cancel the smaller one at 30 seconds before the off?

There is an option to cancel bets with sizes in the given range (and prices in the given range).

In your case, key in the following cancel options:
