Bot Arb trading question
« on: June 17, 2013, 05:36:50 AM »

Hi, i know about manual arb but certainly new in arb trading using bot. Would like to ask a few questions regarding the latten and hopefully could get some advice. Apologize if my question is in anyway wrongly phase.

1) Is it better to have the API of the bookmaker for arb-trading using bot?
2) Does most Arb trading opportunities come from In-Running or Pre-games? Reason being i got 1 book that only offers In-running games on their API.
3) Any idea where could i find any ready sample bot platform (test condition) whereby i could test my formula and calculation?

Thanks in advance.

Some of the alert services owners might help. Or anyone else developing his own software.
Hard to get this kind of info.

1) without api it is hard to automate things
2) i dont know much about trading
3) you have to program some scripts by yourself

As far as I know, only betfair api have methods to place bets.
Other bookies offers "read only" odds feeds. So writing berfair bot is not quite complicate.
Placing bets via script and macros is possible, but be very careful in that case.

You can try with Selenium or XULrunner (google for details).to automate some routines (pacing bets bets on desired websites).
