Expert Advisors for MetaTrader 5

  1. Programs are accepted in compiled files *.EX5, as well as in their original format *.MQ5. DLL-libraries are prohibited.
  2. It is allowed to use the following:
    • One Expert Advisor (is placed in catalogue/mql5/experts)
    • One data file (is placed in catalogue/mql5/files) in any format besides the executable
    • Up to 5 custom indicators (placed in catalogue/mql5/indicators), there are no limitations on the usage of built-in indicators
    • Up to 5 libraries (placed in catalogue/mql5/libraries)
  3. Each Expert Advisor is launched on a separate terminal from one account, and only on one chart, chosen by the Participant.
  4. Multicurrency Expert Advisors may use any currency pair from the 12 available ones.
  5. Experts will be working solely on the equipment of the Organizer, without external control.
  6. Prior to gaining access to the Championship, each Expert Advisor undergoes a preliminary check by the Organizer on the compliance with the formal rules.
  7. Expert Advisors may contain limitation on their usage outside the Championship, but must satisfy the following demands:
    • Be operable and testable throughout the time period of January 1st 2012 to December 31st 2012
    • Be operable with accounts numbered from 1 100 000 to 1 200 000
    • Be operable with demo-accounts, opened on the server of access.metatrader5.com:443
    • Never use scalping: if the profits of 25% of trades, made by the end of the contest, are detected to range within the spread, the Participant will be disqualified
    • Properly consider the settings of financial instruments without rigidly set parameters (limitations by lots, spreads, minimum deviations from the market, etc.)
    • Make a minimum of 5 non-demo trades in the first 7 months of testing (2012.01.01 - 2012.08.01) and in the 3 months of the contest
    • Be free of any critical programming errors in the code (looping, freezing up, etc.) or any clearly harmful actions
    • Be efficient in CPU resources and computer memory
  8. If the Expert Advisor's behavior during preliminary testing essentially differs from that during the Championship, the Expert Advisor will be disqualified
