  2. No, this is more a reflection on trading in general. The belief is that over 90% of leveraged traders lose their trading capital. In a championship, it is likely that more traders swing for the fences, aka Larry Williams style.

    It will be interesting to see whether the 20% increases or falls. The markets are becoming more efficient as more electronic systems go online and so my guess would be that the 20% may even fall this year.

    Automation makes no difference other than giving one individual the ability to trade more markets and achieve greater diversity and second the ability to optimise exection to reduce slip and trading costs. Neither of these is that much help given the format of this competition.

    I would expect the P&L distribution of these competitions to be be very similar to if they were non-automated and will reflect the basic randomness of the market and the fact that most of the competitors wont have an edge.

    As always, the broker will come out of it with lots of nice commissions to help them feel good about the future for automated trading.

    Does anyone know if EasyLanguage can be translated into Metaquote Expert Advisor. If so, can you recommend a coder or a website. Thanks.
     
  7. ELA, goto amazon.com and buy a book. Save yourself some money and learn something at the same time. Check out the Penn-Lehman project a few years ago; probably one of the best models that came out to date.

Roman Zamozhniy, known as Rich was the Winner of the Automated Trading Championship 2006. Regardless his winning in the last-year Championship, Roman completely redesigned his trading strategy. Roman is not afraid of the competition. He feels he fights against the market, and not against other Participants.

  10. Hi Fat,

    Can you address the quite legitimate concerns raised last year about decompiling?

    Why can't the EAs run from the contestants' PCs? Or is it not possible to have the EAs hosted by a 'trustworthy' thirdparty? Why do you not allow DLLs?
