4. What kind of robots is allowed?

Eligible automatic trading robots in the form of expert advisors' programs for metatrader 4 platform, uploaded through the website www.manversusmachine.net

programs can be accepted both as compiled *.ex4 files and as source codes *.mq4. Ea cannot use dll libraries.

The following can be used:

* up to 5 libraries (to be placed into the /experts/libraries directory)

each expert advisor will be launched in one account, in a separate terminal, only on one chart selected by the participant.

All competing expert advisors will work on the organizer's equipment only, without any external control.

Prior to being accepted for participation in the competition, each expert advisor will be tested by the organizer for its compliance with the previous rules.

We strongly recommend to the competitors to test their eas on the whole interval of year 2009.

Work normally in accounts with any number.

Work normally with demo accounts opened on the server of the competition.

Never use scalping: If the profits in 25% of trades executed during the contest are detected to range ‘within the spread’, meaning the profit of an opening and the corresponding closing trade is equal to or less than the normal spread of the traded currency pair, the participant will be disqualified.

Make at least 5 conscious trades within the first 8 back-testing months (2009.04.01-2010.01.01) and within 3 months of the contest.

Be able to manage the symbol settings (limitations on lots, spreads, minimal deviation from the market price, etc.)

never contain any critical bugs (like looping or hanging up, etc.) or explicitly harmful actions in the code

be economical with the use of resources on the processor and pc memory.

If the expert advisor's behavior during the competition essentially differs from that during the preliminary testing, it will result in disqualification of the expert advisor.

In case of the jury's well-grounded claims against the participant's program and of the participant's audit engagement, the trilateral (respectively, by the jury, the organizer, the participant) audit will be performed. If the participant refuses to be engaged into audit, he or she can be disqualified.
