Sponsored by MIG Bank (http://www.migbank.com/), Go Markets Pty Ltd (http://www.gomarketsaus.com/), Vantage FX (http://www.vantagefx.com/) and Forex-TSD (http://www.forex-tsd.com/), the Automated Trading Championship 2011 is developed in the MQL5 language for programming trading strategies (http://www.mql5.com/). The main goal of the Championship is to popularize automated trading. The competition allows solving another important task - accumulation of unique information about the most significant achievements in the field of trading robots creation, because the Automated Trading Championship provides an unprecedented opportunity for the best professionals to test their theories in practice.
From year to year, struggling for the prize of $80,000, hundreds of users from all over the world submit their MQL-developments for the Championship. However, this year's Championship will be special. This will be the world's first competition of trading robots able to trade not only on the Forex, but also in the stock market. Moreover, the extended functionality of the MetaTrader 5 (http://www.metatrader5.com/) client terminal and the release of the MQL5 Wizard (http://www.metatrader5.com/en/automated-trading/mql5wizard) will entail a significant increase of the number of Participants.
"Over 300 Expert Advisors participated in the previous Championship," Stanislav Starikov, the Championship Jury member, said.
"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. Though, this would not guarantee a victory in the Championship, of course," Starikov said.
