This is the first interview in the "ATC Champions League" project. Roman
Zamozhniy (Rich) from Ukraine was the winner of the first Automated
Trading Championship in 2006. In addition, he is a regular participant
of our Championships - he has not missed a single contest. In this
interview, we talked about Roman's first place and tried to figure out
what is necessary for successful participation.
Do you participate with a new Expert Advisor this year or use any parts from previous competitions?
The logic of this EA is completely different from all my previous
contesting programs. Now I am preparing an article about my EA, in which
I will publish the source code. I hope that for the next ATC I will
create something radically different from all the preceding EAs.
You participated in all of our Championships. Is it easier to
prepare for the contest with such experience? Can you tell us about how
you prepare for the ATC?
Now I'm thinking about the EA algorithm for the 2012 contest, while
the idea of an Expert Advisor for the current competition appeared in
October 2010. The most difficult stage of preparation is finding an idea
and developing an algorithm. After that coding takes only a week or
two. Then I have a one-month break and mentally check the shortcomings
of the algorithm, kind of a stress test. If I don't like something, or
change my mind, or have any ideas how to improve, then again I have a
week of programming. And so I work until September.
