New question, if I may. Memphis recommended I take a look at signals, so today I have had a bit of a play and everything looks pretty straightforward except I can't tell one thing.
I have an opening trigger signal which (in the conditions tab) is several conditions checking the market is not in-play, book % is <x, market volume >y etc
I have it as a 'Set / Modify a Signal Only' rule which is always armed so I suppose the moment (refresh) ALL of these conditions are met, this signal changes to 1. I have checked the 'Note Signal changes in the market's log' box and tested it with the following rules...
Market Volume > 50,000
Market Volume < 60,000
Sure enough, I watched the market volume pour in and once it reached 50K my log rapidly filled with a message saying that my signal is set to '1'. Once it got =>60K it stopped. Does that signal change to a 0 or a "" or is it stuck set as '1'? This is what I can't tell.
If it (for that single refresh) gets changed to a '0' or " " then that's fine, else do I have to create another rule telling my signal to change if ALL of the conditions are not met? In that case, I need an 'OR' otherwise I'll have to have a 'turn off signal' rule for EVERY condition?
I hope that makes sense and somebody can explain to me what is happening when the signal conditions are not met. TIA.
On the signal tab there are two options for setting a signal
Set a Signal named - you give it your own value, each time it triggers it will set that same signal name and value
Increment signal value - you only give this a name, when the rule triggers it will set a signal with that name and a value of 1, if it triggers again the value will change to 2 and so on
Decrement Signal value - as above but deducts 1 each time it triggers
This example uses a signal increment value rule, and triggers once every second (while in a loss) so increases the value by 1 every time it triggers, its then reset if you go back into profit, or if the value reaches 10 another rule triggers and greens up
The Signal Goals O/U 2.5 example here increments/decrements the value depending on whether the home or away team scores
Those should help get you going
