Excellent coomments! True the link was removed. Only links you pay for are accepted here.
I also would not recomend people to buy that unless they read about it and make sure that this is something they really need. Why would you need to trade from excel?!?! Many reasons, perhaps you dont want to have your platform visible on the screen (such as trading from your work place). Maybe you dont know how to code an EA using MQL4 and you wish there was an easier way telling your system to buy eurusd if MA34 is above/below price on Daily and RSI is below 23 on Hourly. Perhaps trading from excel helps you organise your trades better...People have different trading styles and often what fits one does not fit the other. Why is there an IBFX banner on the top of this page....do you really think people need YET another broker?! I would argue that this excel tool will probably serve traders needs better than the presence of another bucketshop banner.

And no...you cant do anything with that CSV file.
First off, those "bucketshop banners" pay the bills around here. We wouldn't have this free forum or the Babypips School without them, so they are providing a service to all the traders here.
Second, you can do things with that CSV file. I use it all the time. You just save it and open it in excel.
I understand that the banners help maintain the site and provide content to the forum visitors. However on what merits are they allowed to advertise? On who can afford it or on the usefullness of the product they advertise? I would like to think its the second. I have been a frequent reader of this forum and I have noticed that the admins here do their best to provide quality information.
Regarding the CSV file. Yes, you can use the file to achive few things but I will compare that to trying to build a car engine by accessing the hood and importing the parts through the exaust
Well for newbies like me I think it would greatly help if we can use a platform initially that is easier and less complicated like excel. While I'm sure that advanced users have no problem building their strategies from meta trader, it is not as easy for people new in this business and having excel as a tool would be a great advantage for us in starting out in forex trading.
