Using the ‘Market Filter Editor’ users can create and save their own custom search filters to find their favourite sports and market types quickly and easily.

You can create and save as many filters as you want or need, then with just a single click you can display the markets you’re interested in and in the way that you want.

When creating a filter, you’re able to filter markets using any of the parameters shown in the image below to filter markets at search leaving only those which fit your criteria being displayed to you.

Filters are very easy to create and once you’ve done one or two, you’ll be able to whizz through and configure one for anything you want within minutes.

Creating A Filter

To create a Filter first click on the funnel icon, located on the ‘Select’ and ‘Search’ tabs of the main and Guardian Market selection windows and that will open the ‘Market Filter Editor’ window where you can begin configuring your filter.

The first thing to do is ‘Name the Filter Set’ you’re about to create which you can call anything you want (its just for your own reference).
Then you just need to work your way through the filter parameters ticking and selecting which one’s you wish to filter by, as you’ll see there all fairly self-explanatory.

If you decide to filter by ‘Event Type’ and tick the events you’re interested in, when you arrive at the ‘Market Type’ filter only the markets relating to the Event/s you have picked will be displayed for you to select from.

So, an example might be you want to create a filter to search for UK Horse Racing ‘Win’ markets excluding Maidens and Novices starting in the next 6 hours
If you start by naming the filter set ‘Racing’ or anything else you want then select the following filter parameters;

‘Filter Markets by Start Time’ From 0 hrs to 6hrs from now
‘Filter Markets by Event Type’ Horse Racing
‘Filter Markets by Text’ NOT Mdn AND NOT Nov
‘Filter Market by Country’ UK
‘Filter Markets by Market Type’ Win (as you’ll have selected horse racing as your event type only market types relating to horse racing will show here, if you don’t select an event type then all market types will be shown to you

Once you have created your filter you can use the ‘Preview’ tab to ensure it is filtering the markets you want correctly.

When you have finished you just need to click the ‘Disc+’ icon to save and name the Filter.

Most of the time you may tend to use one filter set per saved filter just as I did in the 4 examples shown in the image at the top of this post, that allows you to quickly and easily flick through each and see the markets available.

Adding Muliple Filter Sets

However you can configure your filters to do even more by adding multiple filters sets within a saved filter, this allows you to display more than one type of market from one or more events with different filter parameters for different markets.

For example, you could create a filter set to display Match odds, Over/Under 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, and Correct Score markets just from the English Premier league but you may want to add a different volume filter for each of the three types of market and this is where adding multiple filter sets would come in.

So, you would start with the filter set for the Match Odds markets (might as well name the filter set ‘Match Odds’ to keep it simple) then for the filter options you would use the following;

‘Filter Markets by Event Type’ Soccer
‘Filter Markets by Text’ enter the following ‘English Premier League’
‘Filter by Market Type’ Match Odds
‘Filter by Traded Volume at Market Level’ must exceed £100’000

Once finished you can use the ‘Add OR Copy Filter Set’ button and begin a new ‘Filter Set’, this time changing the following filters
‘Filter by Market Type’ Over/Under 0.5, 1.5, 2.5
‘Filter by Traded Volume at Market Level’ must exceed £20’000
NB’ If you right click in a window you will be given the option to ‘Select All’ or ‘Clear All’, so here you could right click ‘Clear all’ then select the over/under markets you wish to have

Then repeat those steps to create a final filter set for the Correct Score markets this time making the following changes
‘Filter by Market Type’ Correct Score
‘Filter by Traded Volume at Market Level’ must exceed £10’000

Whether you use a single or multiple filter sets when you have finished setting up your filters you then have the choice of how the markets are then displayed to you, here you can use the ‘Default Market Tree’ or create your own ‘Custom Tree Design’ to view of the markets.

As you can see in the following images below you have plenty of options to configure the way they are displayed to your liking.

The first image shows how the 3 filter sets created above can be displayed, as you can see you have a clear date and time of each fixture with your chosen markets that meet your volume criteria.

Or you could display them something like this

My best advise here is to just have a play around with the various design options and as you do keep using the ‘Preview’ tab to see how it looks until you find the display that best suits what you want.

Import and Export Filters

One final note on the market filters is just like your main settings, display and automation rules etc you can import, and export saved filters, over the coming weeks I’ll start adding some ready-made filter templates that users can download and import as a starting point.
