Stop Loss as % of overall liability

Postby spliffcity » Thu Jan 27, 2022 6:38 pm


A little help please.

I'm placing 3 lay bets into the market each at different odds and stake using excel trigger betting. So e.g.

Laybet 1: £2.5 @ 3.0 = £5 liability
Laybet 2: £5.82 @ 2.72 = £10 liability
Laybet 3: £16.89 @ 2.48 = £25 liability

So total liability overall if all lay bets are matched is £40

What I'm trying to achieve is that if the odds move down and my exit point is greater than 15% of my overall liability, then the stop loss activates.

So in the example above, if my exit point liability is £6

I'm struggling to understand the best way to achieve this.

In the example above, the exit odds manually would be 1.91, but I'm not clear if I set the Stop loss at these fixed odds (with chase) for all 3 bets, will the stake be correct or am I misunderstanding how the stop loss works and I need to manually program this?

Hopefully I've explained myself well enough.

Appreciate any comments or guidance.

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.
