The 12th and the last week of the first annual Automated Trading
Championship 2006 is over. There will be neither moves in the Top Three
nor changes in the total equity of the Top Ten. It's time to name the
Winners and to present the prizes!
The First Place in the Automated Trading Championship 2006 is taken by Roman Zamozhnyy (Rich),
a Participant from Ukraine. His Expert Advisor is rather risky and
allows large drawdowns, but it has been the most profitable by the 23rd
of December. Roman himself believes this Expert Advisor cannot be used
for real trading. However, some offers to buy his EA have already come.
The Expert Advisor is characterized by moderate risk level (below
20%) and by adequate stability (stability factor is 3). Just a little
more than a half of its trades are profitable. Average profit per trade
makes 500 dollars. EA profit factor is 2.48.
Roman has been permanent leader of the Championship for the last two
weeks. His result by the end of the Championship is over 35 thousand of
profit. Roman Zamozhniy will get the gift "First Winner of the
Automated Trading Championship 2006" and 40 000 dollars from Spacevision Switzerland SA. Excellent, Roman!
The Second Place is taken by Luis Guillermo Damiani (ldamiani)
from Brazil. His Expert Advisor named GUMASA is really interesting. It
is based on recognition of patterns and acts differently in different
situations. This EA was always in the Top Ten of the Championship and
often got to the Top Three, as well. However, Luis was a bit unlucky
during the last two weeks, and he took only third place.
Risk level of this EA does not exceed 30%, but its stability factor
is not as high as those of other Winners. It ranges about 1. More than
a half of all trades are profitable, average profit per trade is 400
Luis will get the gift "Second Winner of
the Automated Trading Championship 2006" and 25 thousand dollars from
FXDD. "FXDD is proud to have been a gold sponsor for the 1st Automated
Trading Championship 2006. We would like to thank all those who have
participated and extend our congratulations to the winners!" Shawn
Dilkes, CTO of FXDD, said.
As a consequence of heavy battles fought with varied success, the Third Place was taken by Nikolay Kositsin (GODZILLA)
from Russia. His Expert Advisor, unlike those of the most other
Participants, is a multicurrency trading system. Stability of this EA
ranges about 1.2, its risk level is 40%. Only 35% of its trades turned
to be profitable, but it gains 200 dollars per trade in average.
Nikolay Kositsin will get the gift “Third Winner of the Automated Trading Championship 2006” and 15 000 dollars from Interbank FX LLC. Our congratulations, Nikolay!
