Antonio Morillas from Spain (sallirom) was first who doubled his
starting balance from the beginning of the Championship and thus
attracted our attention. His trading strategy is extremely risky. We
decided to talk to Antonio about risk and luck as these are part and
parcel of Automated Trading Championship.
What was harder: to develop a strategy or program it? Which language do you like more: MQL4 or MQL5?
The hardest thing was of course the
strategy. Is not too difficult to code, by using MQL5 Wizard for
example. I like MQL5 much more in this respect. It allows you to easily
create a multi-currency Expert Advisor or an EA that contains several
strategies. Personally I do not use MQL5 Wizard, as I prefer to have
maximum control over the program. However, this tool will be very useful
to create Expert Advisor for testing, especially for traders who do not
know how to program.
