Two years have passed since the first Automated Trading Championship
A lot of interesting information has been accumulated for this time:
statistical reports, interviews with traders, useful articles. We
present to you a selection of these materials that are divided into
several parts. The present article contains Weekly Reports of the ATC
2007. These materials are like snapshots, they are interesting-to-read
not only during the Championship, but years later as well.
One week has elapsed since the Championship
started. The Top Three Expert Advisors have increased their deposits
almost two times. The total profit of the Top Ten has made about US$81
000 within the first week. Time will tell whether they are able to hold
The second week is over. This week's leader
managed to leave behind other Participants and almost three times
increase the deposit.
This week has drastically decreased profits of
some Expert Advisors and essentially reshuffled the entire Top Ten. The
Top Ten have significantly changed again. Valeri Karpenko (Valvk) from
Russia is on the first place now.
Four weeks have passed since the Championship
started. Leaders interchanged all the time. Very different Expert
Advisors took the first places.
The fifth week of the Automated Trading
Championship 2007 is over. This week, like all preceding ones, made
some changes in the Top Ten Expert Advisors.
The sixth week of the Championship ended. Exactly half of the contest is behind us. This week brought us some surprises.
The 7th week of the Championship ended with
several surprises. The first place has been taken by a Participant from
Ukraine winning “by a head”. The last-weeks leader has given his place
to others and gone somewhere beyond the first page.
Two thirds of the Championship have already
passed. The first places are taken by familiar Participants, however,
surprises run on.
9 weeks have passed since the beginning of the
contest. The unconditional leaders seem to have already dug in their
places, but the fight goes on, so very different Participants may win.
Ten weeks of the Championship are behind us. Only two weeks are left until the contest ends.
Eleven weeks are already behind us. Here is the final straight.

This protects the user of MetaTrader 4 from the potential danger of damaging important data on the HDD. However, it is sometimes necessary to leave that safe area.
