Today MetaQuotes Software Corp. has launched the Automated Trading Championship 2011. It means that soon you will see an exciting battle of trading robots for the prize of $80,000. Once again, different strategies underlying Expert Advisors will come together in a fierce battle. And once again the attention of the traders community will be directed to the dramatic change of leaders, the sudden rises of recent outsiders and unexpected falls of acknowledged masters.
Registration for the Championship starts today and will continue till September 23, 2011. During this period, anyone can submit an application and compete for the prize of $80,000. Participation in the Championship is free.
This year’s Championship will be even more interesting and exciting than ever before. The MQL-developers have had enough time to study the new features of the MQL5 language and are ready to enter the new Championship fully armed. In addition, the appearance of the MQL5 Wizard will significantly increase the number of participants, because now the development of Expert Advisors is available to anyone, and not only to experienced MQL-programmers.
“Over 300 Expert Advisors participated in the previous Championship, -says Stanislav Starikov, the Championship Jury member. – This year the number will increase substantially – we expect to receive several thousands of applications for participation. The reason for this surge lies in the recently released MQL5 Wizard, using which any trader without programming skills can easily create a trading robot. Although, this would not guarantee a victory in the Championship, of course”.
Trading robots written in MQL5 are allowed to enter the competition. The Championship will start on the 3rd of October and will end on the 23rd of December.
