Automated Trading Championship 2009 Will Not Be Conducted

Dear clients,

Organization and conduction of the Automated Trading Championship is a very complicated and cost-consuming project. For the maintenance of this competition our company needs to involve tens of specialists from different departments. Among persons involved in the conduction of Championships there are developers of trading platforms and specialists of the software testing department.

As you might know, now we are engaged in the development of a new trading platform MetaTrader 5; its release is planned for this year. All our forces are now concentrated on the platform release, and soon it will be presented to you for beta testing. Focusing all our resources on this release, we don't want to be distracted from this target.

Besides, the new platform will contain a new environment for the development of trading strategies - MQL5 IDE. We find it more reasonable to conduct the next Championship using the new language. However, it is unlikely that potential participants will manage to learn MQL5 and write new Expert Advisors in it. Due to this the number of potential Participants may be much lower - this is sure to have a negative effect on the attraction of the Championship.

Taking into account all this we decided not to conduct the ATC this year. Instead of this we will concentrate our efforts on the release of the new MetaTrader 5 platform and next year we will conduct the Championship for Expert Advisors written in MQL5.

TeamWox Corporate Management System Released

In 2006, we have developed our first corporate management system (Groupware) for the needs of the company. Initially, the application was not for sale. It enabled us to establish effective interaction within the company and solve the issues caused by its rapid growth. Over time, we decided that such issues are typical of all companies, and groupware systems can be useful to them. Thus, the development of TeamWox commercial system started. Currently, it incorporates all our achievements and experience in the development and use of groupware systems. TeamWox is a simple, convenient and functional tool for managing a modern company.
