Automated Trading Championship 2008 Open for Registration

July 1, 2008 by

MetaQuotes Software is organizing its third yearly automated trading championship (basically a contest of the expert advisors). There are three sponsoring Forex brokers this time — FXCM, Interbank FX and FXDD. The total prize funds are $80,000 with $40,000 going for the first place, $25,000 — for the second one and $15,000 — for the third. The registration for the championship opened today, July 1, and will last until September 19th. The automated contest itself will start on October 1st and will run for almost 3 months until December 26th.

As always, this is a pure virtual money contest (but with the eal money prizes of course), which is free for anyone to participate. The expert advisors should be written for MetaTrader 4 platform and can be both in form of the source files (*.mq4) and in compiled form (*.ex4). The last year contest showed some very brilliant Forex expert advisor ideas with more than 1,300% gain on the winning one. This time the quality of the participants’ submission may get even better.

My expert advisor for the 2007 championship was quite lossy and I hope to get a rematch this time. I’ve already registered for this competition and I am looking forward to optimize some interesting EA before the contest starts.
