The article "Preferences of the ATC 2010 Participants" reveals the statistical data that had been obtained after the testing reports of all the Expert Advisors submitted for the Automated Trading Championship 2010 were analyzed. The following basic parameters were considered: the
symbol and the timeframe on which an Expert Advisor was tested and also
the number of input parameters.
This time we analyzed basic report parameters of 506 Expert Advisors that had been subject to automatic tests for Automated Trading Championship 2011 and compared them with the same parameters of the Expert Advisors that had been submitted for the last year's Championship.
In comparison with the previous Championship there are no any
significant changes concerning currency pairs. EURUSD is still the most
popular pair. More than 80% of participants have chosen it this year. It
is almost 12% more than last year. At that, the number of the Expert
Advisors working with GBPUSD decreased by 7%.
