Gruss / excel - price grabber to chart

Postby bobastic » Mon Apr 11, 2016 5:03 pm


Hopefully someone out there has already done this or has a sheet with the frame work in.

It all depends on whether you can specify a race and horse and then grab all the prices it has matched money at ( IE reproduce the chart in memory ) or whether you need to store the prices in a sheet every so many seconds.

ideally I want to have an excel sheet with a start button, and then it grabs all the days races in the first tab. Each race showing down the sheet. With the standard course,time,horse,trainer,jockey,back, lay, market %, total matched money.

What I would like to do is click a horse and then it shows the price going up and down over its history. produces a chart of the price so I can see it in another tab. Even have the sheet fill blocks on a tab showing the price movement.So I can cleary see its gone up 5 ticks, down 3 ticks, then up 6 ticks etc etc.

I'll explain more in the chart when you get in touch. But its really whether there is a call to download the price changes for betfair or whether it needs to be captured and stored in sheet.

If its stored in sheet then we will have resource issues and messaging, but every 3 mins from 9am to 20 mins before racing. then 1 minute up to 10 mins out and then every second if possible for any race within 10 mins ?

Hopefully theres something in betfair that lets you call the history but I guess there wont be.LOL

Any takers ? I'll explain more when you post or reply.

Sports betting software from Gruss Software

The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
