After having been at Forex for awhile now, both coding and trading, I'm beginning to suspect that retail traders have almost no chance of being profitable consistently. Even when you find an EA that has perfect backtest results you find something like it utilizes no stoploss. Even a pure...

Hello Apologies for another really dumb question, but its beyond me! In my EA, I'm collecting and writing data into weekly Excel spreadsheets, which I'm incrementally numbering, creating one new sheet per week. This is fine, but I end up with spreadsheets all named as numbers only. I'd like to use...
