This Profit and Loss capture sheet has been created by NigelK to allow you to capture your P/L at regular intervals during a market.

When connected it will record your P/L (the amount you can green up for) which you can later analyze and plot to a chart. Peter highlighted this as something he does in a number of markets and particularly in tennis markets.
Click the following link to see a video he posted earlier this year where he explains in further detail why he captures this type of information.

How to use it

Click the file 'PL Recorder.rar' at the bottom of this post to download it to your PC, then using a program like winzip or winrar unzip the file, it will then be ready to connect to Bet Angel via the 'Excel' tab in the main window or guardian.

To use the capture sheet you must ensure you have your Refresh rate set to 1 second, or if using in guardian ensure the market it is connected to is being refreshed every 1 sec.

Once you open the capture sheet you can set the intervals that it starts recording your P/L.
It can be used on both in-play and pre-play markets, when using on pre-play markets it will start recording at the number of seconds before the start you have entered then stop at the official start time.
When using on in-play markets it will record from when the market is turned in-play until the number of seconds in the start time is reached or the market closes

Example

At the start of an earlier Tennis match I placed a £10 back bet on Del Potro, my P/L (the amount I could green up for) was then captured every 20 seconds throughout the match.
Once finished I could plot that information onto a chart in just a few clicks to clearly see how my position changed throughout the match, how long/often I was in a profit or loss for, what and when the peak P/L were etc, all that allows me to spot were those key points were within the match.

The recorder was working fine, but, stopped at 23:03:36 .. after starting at 07:48:08.

I dont really understand formulas .. but, shouldnt the formula for H4, reflect 5 days. I can understand 24*60*60 is secs for 1 day etc, but the match lasts 5 days.

Hello NigelK.
When I open the spreadsheet, there is content from a horse racing. The tennis match I follow is only at the top. How do I remove the other content?

Hi Dallas,

Many thanks for this sheet, very useful however is it possible to get it to record more than 1 match (tennis) at a time?
I presume it would just need more sheets and then I could use the auto-bind function to connect the matches I had in guardian would that work?

Many thanks for your help

Petar
