New article Interview with Andrey Barinov (ATC 2012) is published:
It was on Friday of the Championship's first week that the trading robot of Andrey Barinov (Wahoo) occupied the fifth place in TOP-10. Andrey is a newcomer in the Championship but he has already managed to execute more than 100 orders in Jobs and develop a dozen of products for Market. We have arranged an interview with him and learned that the development of a "simple multicurrency Expert Advisor" is not an easy but a fairly easy task.
Hello, Andrey! Why do you have such a strange nickname Wahoo?
I think, it is no stranger than any
other. I was trying to invent some non-existent word initially. But it
turned out to be quite a challenge. Later, I found out that Wahoo is a
name of a very strong and fast fish difficult to catch. I decided that
strength and speed are the things I want to be associated with. "How do
you call a boat, so it will float."
Very interesting! How did you start your trading activity and programming of trading robots?
I started real trading a few years ago. I
traded manually but the results were not so good. Then I took a rather
long break. I accidentally learned about the Championship a few months
ago and decided to participate. To do this, I had to master MQL5 to
develop my Expert Advisor. Then I became interested in "Jobs" service
and realized that I can help other people to write Expert Advisors based
on their strategies. However, I also had to clarify some questions
concerning MQL4, as it is still a very popular language. That is how the
next stage of my Forex activity started 3 months ago.
