Trade Interceptor for Excel: fantastic tool for newbie like me why nobody told me ?
It's several months I tried to learn MQL4 (since at least the day I did register here) and never succeded due to this stupid c syntax. There is DDE for Excel but you can just get quotes not historical data.
I stumbled upon tradeinterceptor for iPhone (also great!) then went to their site and discovered a real gem: tradeinterceptor for excel.
Not only you can get real time quotes easily but also and above historical quotes so that you can build trading strategy with just excel formulas or vba which are 10 times easier for novice than with mql4.
Of course I will still try to learn mql4 but I don't know how many more months it will take on me to just build a basic EA
Since I wish someone told me about it months ago - I would have saved so much time and money - I thought other newbies would be happy to also discover it like me.
