New article Interview with Alexey Masterov (ATC 2012) is published:
We do our best to introduce all the leading Championship Participants to our audience in reasonable time. To achieve that, we closely monitor the most promising contestants in our TOP-10 and arrange interviews with them. However, the sharp rise of Alexey Masterov (reinhard) up to the third place has become a real surprise!
The final third place must have
taken you aback. It is the first time in the Championship's history that
the Participant enters TOP-3 so unexpectedly.
Yes, it came as a surprise for me.
Although I believed that my Expert Advisor is a promising one, the
circumstances could have been unfavorable preventing my trading robot
from showing its power. My Expert Advisor is designed for trends and the
market was favorable to it during the last two weeks, especially when
the traded symbol opened with a gap after December 25.
It seems that your trading robot
has a very aggressive strategy staying in the market almost all the
time. Why did it trade so frequently?
I wouldn't call it aggressive. The
robot has performed only 53 deals. My Expert Advisor uses a reversal
strategy trading without Stop Losses. Besides, Take Profit level is big
enough. Therefore, there is an impression that the Expert Advisor is
constantly in the market. However, on the penultimate day, it reached
Take Profit level and did not enter the market after that.
