I’ll return to the speed question soon (as I have an idea for a testing bot, just needs writing), the results of the little testing I’ve done are not really good, as in they don’t really move me forward. Development of the VB bot is still progressing though, well my programming ability is, with the more I learn I add/change what I want to do but it’s all good. I’ve been playing with what data to collect/monitor and how to handle it (to avoid unnecessary bloating of the bot). As I like to visualise things, I’ve been presenting data in different ways. Below is one of the charts I created, just with excel, to show matched volumes. It covers the second favourite for the final two minutes before the off in a middle-of-the-road greyhounds race. The data is at 1 second intervals with a 4% decay added to project but not obscure the matching. The price can be seen to rise as it approaches off time (front of image) with last-price-traded at 4.0. It isn’t much use on its own but I like how it looks. Adding another parameter, or two, gives more meaning.
