Forex Trade Manager, a dynamic assistant designed for the seasoned forex trader. Unlike typical automatic trading robots or Expert Advisors (EAs), Forex Trade Manager doesn’t autonomously open positions or make trading decisions. Instead, it is an invaluable aid in manual trading, streamlining operations, and improving decision-making efficiency.
