The Automated Trading Championship 2012 is over. In a bitter struggle three best trading robots were identified. These EAs brought their creators a well-deserved reward: cash prizes and souvenirs. By tradition, we give the floor to the winners.
The first place has been won by Francisco Garcia Garcia from Spain. His trading robot experienced hard times throughout the Championship, leaving TOP-10 for several times, but no matter what it finished first with balance of $54,470. For the first time in the history of our Championships multicurrency EA is on the top of the pedestal. Francisco won the award for "The first place in the Automated Trading Championship 2012" and $40,000 from Alpari (UK) Limited. An excellent debut!
The second place with minimum difference in balance is taken by Juan Pablo Alonso Escobar from the USA. "Patience and a little effort," they say, and this is completely true for this winner who has been participating in our Automated Trading Championships for many years. The fifth attempt was successful, and Juan gets the well-deserved award for "The second place in the Automated Trading Championship 2012" and $ 25,000 from United World Capital.
The third place was unexpectedly taken by Alexey Masterov from Russia. His Expert Advisor auspiciously burst into the TOP-10 in the last days of competition and got bronze for its creator. Alexey gets the award for "The third place in the Automated Trading Championship 2012" and $15,000 from Roboforex LP.
