I have a rule that places a lay order on every football match, but the BF markets list updates throughout the day, meaning that if I add all the markets available in the morning, apply the rule and then go out for the day, many matches will be missed. I think I'm right in saying that the list in the left-hand fixtures pane updates itself. Is there a way to sync the markets in the automation area with the list in the fixtures pane and have the rule applied to the new ones when they are added?

It's a common request, but I believe Betfair either prohibit or dislike automatic refreshing of markets.

One possibility would be to use a scripting application like AutoIt to press the refresh button. I've never tried it but I'd probably look into it if that's what I required.

Thanks, Derek. So, is there actually a button I can push to refresh the list of markets in the right-hand Guardian pane, rather than reloading all markets every time and looking to see which still have no lay placed?

You can automate this by using the keyboard short cuts.

Betfair don't allow us to keep calling the market list.

Haha, that thread was on my to-read list, Peter. Thank you.
