In MarketFeeder Pro, triggers are the ultimate way to automate your betting. Everyone can create and run a trigger, and with a trigger you can back, lay, cancel your bets, control the refresh rate of a market, green up, Dutch, initiate alerts and emails and even write data to Excel – there are 50 actions available at the moment.

A trigger is easy to program using plain English commands, see example below.
