From the first seconds of Monday, October 3, 2011 the quotes of the
MetaQuotes-Demo trading server started their flow, almost four hundred
trading terminals of the competition participants came to life and the
first deals were made during the first seconds of the Championship.
According to our experience, FIFO (First In, First Out) principle is most
common during the competition. It means that the Expert Advisors which
started their trading activity from the first minutes will most probably
be the first to fall out of the race.
The first two days everyone's
attention was grabbed by the successfull start of the participant sallirom
from Spain. For such a short time the Expert Advisor enlarged the
volume of the open position up to the maximum permissible value of 15
lots. Also, the Expert Advisor modified the Stop Loss of the open
position actively. Finally, the deal was fixed with $12 140 of profit
and the balance reached $22 140! But this is where sallirom's luck
ended. A series of loss-making deals has devastated the balance. And now
it is equal to less than $5000. It is hard to believe that there were
the moments when the value of equity reached $34000!
The Champion crown was at once picked up by the Expert Advisor of gery18
from Slovakia and for now it seems it is not going to drop it. The
Expert Advisor has finished the week without open positions but having
almost $35000 on its account.
