Hi Everybody,

The contest results for Tuesday, August 20 will also be delayed. Sorry about the inconvenience. We're working on updating the leaderboard as soon as feasible.

Any updates? Thanks

We're still working to resolve the issue. We recently updated our system for deploying updates to the contest. There were some issues with the new system which has delayed the fix for this bug. We're hopeful that we can start to simulated the previous few days tonight or tomorrow morning. Once we're able to start running simulations again, we typically recover at a rate of 2-3 contest days per real day. We will keep you posted by updating this thread as we learn more.

Thanks for sharing these infos.

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, we are still working on fixing the issue that is preventing the contest from updating. Our most recent attempt to fix the problem failed on our staging environment, so we are still working to fix the issue. Sorry for the delay and we will keep this thread updated with the status of the fix.

Thank you Jamie for this update! I am in third place as per latest contest update and I am really looking for the new contest results!

Thanks for updating Jamie and great job Emiliano! May I ask what kinds of algorithms are you using in the contest? My pairs trading algo isn't doing well in the last couple of weeks.

Would it be possible to run the old system of updating the scores once a week as a stopgap measure until the new system is properly in place?

That would be awesome Sujith!

We believe we now have things working on our production environment and we are starting to catch up on the backlog of contest days. We are hoping to have the first day updated later tonight (we are located in the US/Eastern timezone). We will keep this thread posted as that progresses.

Again, thank you everyone for your patience as we resolve these issues.

Thanks Jamie!

Great news, thanks for the updates!

The contest has now been updated with Aug. 19 results. We are currently running Aug. 20 results and we will keep simulating until we are caught up to the current day.

Thank you everyone for your continued patience and sorry for how long this has taken to resolve.

Hi everyone,

All contest results have now been published. Thank you for your patience, sorry about the inconvenience, and congrats to everyone that has made it onto the leaderboard.
