Winners of the Automated Trading Championship 2012

[ru]

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!

Francisco Garcia Garcia - First Winner of the Automated Trading Championship 2012It was an amazing experience, I'm very happy. Certainly, Automated Trading Championship 2012 was the most exciting Championship until the last second. My forecast was that multicurrency Expert Advisor would win the contest this year, but in November I could not imagine that would be my EA.

Congratulations to the winners of the second and third places, actually the podium has been hard fought. Contestants have submitted very good Expert Advisors, which curiously have not been as profitable as ones in previous years. In any case I want to congratulate all the participants for their hard work and good results.

Over the past year we have seen lots of new features in MetaTrader 5 platform and MQL5 language, and today many big brokers have already incorporated or are incorporating MetaTrader 5. At the same time, MQL5.community continues to grow. Congratulations to MetaQuotes Software Corp. and to the sponsors for organizing the Championship - everything was excellent!


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.

Juan Pablo Alonso Escobar - Second Winner of the Automated Trading Championship 2012This was a very interesting Championship, and it remained intense until the very end. I want to congratulate Alexey Masterov and Francisco Garcia Garcia for their great performance and results, and I hope to see them again in the next year's competition. There were also many interesting algorithms among all participants, and watching their performance was a valuable learning experience.

I also want to thank the organizers and sponsors for creating such an engrossing competition. The constant news, updates, and analysis made every week of the competition interesting to watch.

I hope to see more competitors in the next Automated Trading Championship, it will be exciting to see how new automated strategies perform in the currency markets.


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.

Alexey Masterov - Third Winner of the Automated Trading Championship 2012It is hard to overestimate the opportunities offered by automated trading. And the MetaTrader 5 trading platform and MQL5 language are reliable assistants in the fury of market forces. If I had not had this extremely handy tool, it would be much more difficult for me to translate my abstract ideas into the source code of real EA that succeeded in the Championship and took the third place.

Of course, this result was surprising even to me, because on the penultimate week of the Championship my Expert Advisor was not even in the TOP-10. That just showed me that everyone should always hope and believe in good luck till the end.

Above all I want to thank MetaTrader 5 developers and MetaQuotes Software Corp. for the wonderful trading platform (in all aspects) and for organizing the Championship in 2012. Like hundreds of other participants, it allowed me to evaluate and believe in myself, and demonstrated that success in automated trading is possible! I wish the company to prosper, develop and create new trading platforms.

My sincere congratulations to Francisco Garcia Garcia and Juan Escobar who took first and second place, respectively! I wish you to develop your ideas and to succeed in trading! And of course, I want to whole-heartedly thank the sponsors of this great Championship who provided invaluable assistance in the organization.

For all other participants and spectators I wish to hang tough and try your hand in future Championships and in real trading. Surely, you will succeed!

Once again we would like to thank our Sponsors - Alpari (UK) Limited, United World Capital and Roboforex LP - for their help in organizing the Automated Trading Championship 2012.

I have the same question. It would be nice to know the answer soon because it is good to have enough time for development of the new EAs. I like this championship, so I hope there will be ATC 2013...

This is just a new confirmation of the fact that MA crosses are the necessary & mostly sufficient conditions for reversal and trend recognition. Anything else is just fuzzy logic. I use it and just move the stop to above or below the last 4 hour candle.
