Well that was a very odd day!
1-0 to Wolves and I tried trading out once it got back into the high threes. Market permanently suspended which usually means Betfair have lost their feed to the game. I contacted them and they confirmed this. While talking it went to 2-0, and thankfully I fired up my Gruss trading software and the Betfair API (data connection) seemed much more stable than the web browser, so I got out for a decent green.
Which reminds me…… every trader should have a BetDaq account and a few bookies accounts for these rare but dangerous situations where you can’t trade out. Betfair are notoriously awful to deal with, unhelpful, and don’t give a damn how much money you lose even if it’s a problem in their computers/networks (it’s all in the small print of course) so you need protection not just from internet problems but also from trading platform problems.
