Automated Trading Championship 2010 Registration has closed! We've been accepting applications for participation in the competition for about four months. During this time 1,726 people have registered on this site.
As of the moment, 284 Expert Advisors have been automatically checked. Besides personal details of authors were approved and these developers were allowed to participate in the Championship. This is 16% of total number of submitted applications.
However, all other applications were not accepted for a number of reasons. 5 Expert Advisors successfully passed all tests, but their authors' personal details were not approved. And vice versa for the second group: personal details were approved, but developers didn't submit an Expert Advisor or it couldn't pass tests. Its 685 or 39% of the total number of applications. The third group (752 applications and 43%) contains those who didin't submit proper personal details and Expert Advisor. Because of all these violations we had to refuse to register them to the Automated Trading Championship 2010.
This year the number of accepted Expert Advisors is much less than the number of participants in ATC 2007 and 2008. "This is quite understandable, - Renat Fatkhullin, CEO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. says. - The MQL5 language is new and differs much from MQL4. Obviously developers need some time to learn it. However, experienced developers have successfully moved to the new language. I hope we'll have an interesting competition, despite the fact that relatively few robots will compete this time".
September 25, 2010 at 23:59 Moscow time registration to participate in the competition closed. We are not accepting Expert Advisors anymore. The system of automatic checks of submitted EAs has been stopped. No other applications to participate in the ATC 2010 will be accepted. We still have some time to check personal details and submitted Expert Advisors manually. Special checks will be performed to make sure there are no multiple registrations.
The Championship will start in 8 days. We hope to see a fair fight for the prize. May the best man win!
Registration for the Automated Trading Championship 2010 will continue till the 25th of September
The peak of applications occurred at the end of Automated Trading Championship 2010 Registration period. Unfortunately at the same time we had problems with automatic testing of Expert Advisors, and all Expert Advisors need to be repeatedly tested in automatic mode. This is the reason why we decided to extend the Registration period till September 25, 2010.
Less than three days are left before the start of the Automated Trading Championship 2010. In a little while we all will be in a vehement strife of trade robots. However, not everyone will be able to take part in the competition. The reasons are the mistakes made while developing Expert Advisors and multiple registrations.
