Hello, I want to use two classes which have the same name and I want to know if there is a way to do so. The reason why I don't want to change one class name is that I want to stick to the convention. Thanks in advance.

Hello, I am struggling to find anyone to develop my EA. Its up in the freelance section and is relatively simple if not already exists. I have been trading manually for a few years now but having decided automated trading may be worth trying, I have very little knowledge of MQL5, code base,...
When I use functions like TimeTradeServer, TimeLocal, and TimeCurrent, they return me the time in the tester and not the actual time in the real world.  Normally this is what you want but I want to measure total times of tests that I run so I can improve my ea's speed.  How can I do this?
