Forex Flex EA Review

Hottest EA On The Market Now 67% Off

Coupon Code: FLEX67OFF

Forex Flex EA is an extremely flexible(hence the name) forex robot capable of many powerful things. It comes pre-loaded with 12 unique strategies that you can switch to within the EA by just a click of the mouse. It’s basically like having 12 EAs in one! Their main strategy called ‘Default’ is a very interesting hybrid of grid and trend reversal. Some of you might hear the word grid and have concerns, but Flex does things quite different. It won’t start a grid until its core asset(its virtual trade technology) determines that it’s safe to do so. Most other grid systems out there open trades with no specific market conditions required, or use very basic outdated indicators which has always proven to fail.

Most of the accounts you see on this page are using the Default strategy on various currency pairs with all kinds of success.

Flex EA Results

As you can see, there is no shortage of real money results with a decent amount of history behind them. This thing has clearly performed well for quite a while now. You will see the monthly gains range from 10% up to over 100% per month. While Flex can be setup to pump out 100% returns per month, it doesn’t come without high risk at these levels. Those kind of gains should not be expected to sustain month over month. If you’re looking for those kinds of gains, you better have an exit strategy to withdraw profits, and rinse and repeat. More sustainable long term gains are in the 10-20% range.


How Flex Works

  • Simplicity

You can select the strategy you want to use from a drop down list when you attach the EA to a chart, set your Risk and that’s it. It will do the rest for you. Not only are there now over 12 built-in strategies to chose from, there is now a private member forum where 100s of privately optimized .set files/strategies can be downloaded for free. This is where the value of a community really comes through.

Ready to go, out of the box settings. Simple plug and play. Works best on (GBPUSD, USDJPY, USDCAD, USDCHF, EURUSD, AUDUSD) but can be traded on just about any currency pairs if you desire. You will see some of the accounts are trading 20+ pairs very successfully.


  • Precision

Flex EA uses a newly developed innovative technology involving “virtual trades“. Simply put, Flex will open virtual trades in the background, using them to constantly monitor the market to help determine the absolute perfect entry point, at which point Flex will start opening real trades.

New market monitoring, virtual trade technology brings precision entry points that no indicator can compete with. The default settings will use 6 virtual trades per currency pair to monitor market conditions. Lowering this number will result in less accurate entry points, but higher trading frequency. Raising this number will do the opposite.

  • Flexibility

Flex EA can be setup to trade just about any trading strategy imaginable. It comes 12 unique built-in trading strategies that you can select with a click of the mouse.

These are just a few of the built-in strategies:

Default – This is a hybrid trading strategy of Super Precise, Half Grid and Trend Surfer.

v2Default – New v2.0 strategy based off the original with some slight backend algorithm tweaks.

Super Precise – This opens trades very rarely, but when it does it’s very accurate.

Scalper settings – Scalps small profits during market corrections.

Full Grid – Your traditional martingale style trading.

Half Grid – Not as risky as Full Grid, about 50% less trading frequency.

Trend Surfer – Similar to Super Precise and Default settings but with bigger TP values.

Shotgun – Throw paint at the wall and see what sticks. This is a fun strategy but also very risky!

Flex EA is certainly something new and refreshing that this automated forex industry has desperately needed for years now. Anotherย  invaluable part of Flex is their very active member forums that contains a load of fantastic information and including lots of very good private .set files. The information provided in this review is only scratching the surface of what Flex has to offer. Don’t be afraid of too many settings or too much to learn, there are boat loads of .set files you can download and simply plug and play that optimize all the settings for you. There is even a 30 day money back guarantee if you’re not happy.

    The EA system is incredible at making consistent profits long term. Hands down best Ive ever seen. It learns and gets to know the movement of the market and executes trade after trade in glorious precision. Run on demo for at least 2 weeks to go Live. Well done.

    I have to say this EA has been a pleasant surprise. I have been through a lot of hot flaming garbage ea’s, its quite embarrassing actually ๐Ÿ™ This is the only one that actually worked straight out of the box without fiddling with settings. Its also the only EA where the customer support is provided by the developer himself. Every other EA I had to try to explain my problems to outsourced Indian customer support that didn’t have a clue.

    Thumbs up for this breathe of fresh air.

    • GP - Posts:

      Reply #14

      Hi FFX,
      currently I can’t recommend the new hedging feature. Against my principles I used it on real account on loosing trades. With V4.12 it opened a bench of hedge trades with pyramiding lot sizes. I had at sudden ~15 lot opened. With V4.13 there it opens only 1 hedge position with a TP. When TP is hit it opens another one. However, your initial basket in that time is still collecting DD. In addition if the market turns and moves against your hedge, there you will add additional DD depending on lot multiplier for hedge. Hence it is very risky to use if you don’t closely monitor.
      In V4.20 there are some improvements on the hedging feature such as definable SL and TP, but it’s still beta and I don’t re command to use it yet.

        I believe what you’re talking about was fixed in 4.13 where it doesn’t open larger lot size hedges over and over.

    Running this EA for several weeks now and all goes well except that I have to figure out some way to prevent stop loss by major events like the GBP flash crash from last week. Also occasionally stop loss is hit due to trending. I use demo accounts of 1000 or 2000 USD with 0.01 lotsize.

    One other problem is in the updates of flex. I got warnings from MT4 when v3.60 was released but it didn’t install automatically. So I had to manually reinstall all charts (many of them ๐Ÿ™‚ )
    I am also wondering what will happen to open trades when I install v4. Will the open trades be taken over by Flex 4.0, even when the timeframe and other settings are different?

      Here are my 5 (to 500) cents on your questions. Please anyone correct me if I’m wrong.

      For 100% there is no guarantee that you won’t loose in forex trading even with flexEA. In general there are 2 situations when those extreme movements can happen.
      In addition it can be in a way planed such as
      a) Economic news calendar events
      b) unplaned โ€“ by market

      Furthermore you may need to divide between
      1) no trades open
      2) trade basket open

      Here are the โ€œprotectionsโ€ flexEA and maybe others offer
      1.a) Movement caused by news:
      New news filter in V4. But keep in mind that sometimes even on medium impact news huge movements may occur or speeches may take some more minutes and then take effect on market.

      1.b) No news driven: maxATR and maxSpread settings. Don’t leave maxSpread on on default 7.0! Don’t bother if those filters sometimes reduce trading frequency as they will save your account from big suffer.
      In V4 there are next to the news filter much more filters to protect as much as possible.
      SR filter and TDI are the ones I am currently interested in.

      2.a) News related: New news filter can be configured in order to close baskets on MinsBeforeNews value of minutes. But that would affect every time a news event occurs.
      Maybe the news filter on open baskets may be improved by something like
      – stop open new trades (means pause basket during news)
      – close if DD max % or $ (means if in profit or DD e.g. 1x% then close before news otherwise pray or use regular DD).

      2.b) In case of a big move against your basket of trades, there is one major protection for your account that is the DD% value. Flex offers you to specify it on a per chart or a โ€œglobalโ€ basis called โ€œallChartsโ€. But this only means all charts where flex is working on with the same magic number โ€“ keep that in mind if you user other EA as well.
      In addition you may set a RealStoppLoss if the strategy you’re trading doesn’t set it by default.

      In V4 there is also a new option (at least I didn’t see it before) called PauseBasketsAtDD. If you use it, flex stops adding more trades to the basket in the loosing direction.

      In total I would wish some more flexible exit conditions in flex. The new entry filters look very promising, but exit is limited to a pip gain or trailing from a certain profit point or DD/SL. As this product is actively developed, I hope we see something like this in the future.

      About the update thing I never saw a notification that there’s a new version. I check from time to time the web side .. currently on a daily basis.
      The trick to not having to setup the charts on each update is to rename the ex4 file. I cut the version off and simply overwrite it on each update.
      Finally as long as your magic number will not change, flex will trade your open trades. Just be careful that the new parameters are set correctly. If you want to save you custom settings, save the settings in a set file and merge it afterwards. Eg. I made me a .set file which contains only User and Strategy parameter. If you load this, only those values will be changed.

        great tips for newbies GP!

        been using Flex myself since august 2015 and am very pleased with it! Steve is very active in adding and coding new features and always replies very quickly when there a questions.

        also I would like to see some feature in a future update:

        a $/โ‚ฌ amount based ‘locked in profit’ setting. atm this is available with the equity trail on a % basis but I find it hard and cumbersome to find a proper setting as one has permanently adjust the values when the balance changes.

        what I suggest is the following:

        EquityTrailTP: 5$
        LockedinEquityTrailSL: 1$

        for the above setting as soon as a trade would be 5$ in profit a SL would be automatically set at +1$. if the trade continues in favour you just let it run until it hits your TP either pip based or your FloatingTP. if it retraces though all orders would be closed at +1$ and still secure a small profit. you would basically have a ‘risk free trade’ as soon as you’re in a profit zone.
        of course the values have to be adjustable.

        also I’d like to see a manual trade sequence setting:
        e.g. 0.01;0.01;0.01;0.01;0.02;0.03;0.03.. etc
        right now the above sequence is not possible as this is only adjustable with the lot multiplier which can cause too much of a drawdown when you’re trading micro lots as you need to have a lot multiplier of at leat 1.5 in order to get leverage.

        finally I eould like to see a members’ only forum where we could discuss pairs, strategies and settings, etc.

        take care anyobody and happy trading

      This is the best EA I have used that consistently makes money every week. Started in June 2016 with 5K and since made 2.3K profit. Probably would have had more profit but I took Steve’s recommendation to shut it down during the BREXIT vote. Started with low risk at first and have been increasing it steadily. I have used halfgrid, flexhybrid and default and all were profitable. Out of these DEFAULT is my favorite. I am currently experimenting with some of my own custom settings at the moment on my demo account.. I use 20 pairs with max charts 4 with the other settings set to default strategy settings. I have the EA loaded on a VPS and runs 24 hours 6 days a week. I sleep very well at night.

    What is the best number of bars in the SR indicator setting to be used on a Nano acct. or Micro acct.? Is it best to use it with any other indicator or is that too much restriction on a given pair? Is it best to use the SR indicator by itself?

      S&R filter is timeframe dependent, with that in mind I run it on H1 or H4 and use 24-48 number of bars to look back to determine the S&R levels.

        Sean I agree with you. So I share what I do in order to find the right strategy. I don’t focus on one single one, but for the best of each pair.
        I user the strategy tester in optimization mode and let all settings as default and then switch on testing for the strategy from Default to ADR Dynamic.
        I do this for each pair and a timeframe such as 1 year. As spread I use this table as I found it reasonable for my brokers for STP accounts (no commission).

        EURUSD 1,5
        USDJPY 1,5
        EURJPY 1,5
        AUDUSD 1,7
        EURGBP 1,8
        USDCAD 1,9
        USDCHF 2,0
        AUDJPY 2,0
        GBPUSD 2,1
        EURCHF 2,1
        NZDUSD 2,3
        EURAUD 2,4
        CADJPY 2,4
        CHFJPY 2,4
        AUDCAD 2,6
        NZDJPY 3,0
        GBPJPY 2,9
        GBPCHF 4,0

        The last 2 I don’t use as they are on the list of pairs to avoid.

        Once I found the strategy for each pair that is profitable and with a reasonable DD I can use it with default settings or can try optimization of parameters.

        But be aware, if getting too greedy even flex cannot help. All strategies are in a way MartiGrids and hence to start with a risk of 0,1 or 0,2 is the key for long-time success.

          GP, do you have a video of how to set this up?

          • GP - Posts:
            October 15, 2016

            Sorry Tre, I currently don’t have a video. But if you are a bit familiar with back-testing in MT 4 it is pretty easy.
            I alsp recommand using 99% tickdata as most broker’s history is only a few month. Search youtube for MT4 backtest 99%

            Here are the steps ..
            1. If not already done, add the symbol you want the backtest to run in the market view (STRG-U)
            2. Open Strategy Tester view (STRG-R)
            3. Drag the Forex-Flex-EA from the Navigator window to the Strategy Tester view
            4. Choose your desired symbol
            5. Choose Model “Every tick”
            6. Set period (flex is designed for M15)
            7. Set Spread for your symbol according to the table in post #15
            8. Check Optimization check-box
            9. Click Expert Properties button (new window opens with 3 tabs)
            10. On Testing tab set desired Initial Deposit and Optimization parameter .. eg. Balance
            11. Check Strategy variable and choose for start column “Default” and for Stop column “ARDDynamic”
            12. Click OK button (window closes)
            13. You may adjust the test period by choosing dates at the “Use date” section. Eg. from 2016.01.01 to 2016.10.15
            14. Click in Strategy Tester the “Start” button

            Now it’ll take some time to process all tests as MT4 doesn’t support parallel testing such as MT5. However, you will find 2 new tabs after pressing start in Strategy Tester – “Optimization Results” and “Optimization Graph”. On Results you’ll find the list, which will be sorted by Profit after the last test is done.
            That’s it.

            ATTENTION: Since V4 the recommended time frame is 1H or 4H!! M15 was recommended in previous versions. Refer to the readme file that comes with the latest updates.

          • Joe Stevens - Posts:
            October 18, 2016

            You can actually still use any timeframe, higher ones are recommended because 4.00 has the UseSR (Support & Resistance) turned on by default which is timeframe sensitive. It looks back ‘x’ NumOfBars, so you can understand why running this on M15 with a low NumOfBars will result in the SR lines being too tight to the current price.

            Yup, I just started testing “scalper” mode and am using the 1M timeframe. I boosted the number of bars to 300 and it seems happy with that.

            In V4.04 the default settings were switched back to not use SR filter. Little confusing, but I think I’ll keep that.

            Should the number of bars be lower on a one minute timeframe like ten? Why 300 works better?

    When I selected the “Flexhybrid” strategy, the EA didn’t automatically set the parameters values. They are totally different than the ones mentioned in the documentation. Any idea/clarification?. For example, based on the Flex EA documentation, the RealTakeProfit and Pipstep should be 50 and 20 but the EA automatically set them to 30 and 15.

    Hi everybody,

    First, I would like to thank all of you for your valuable comments and for sharing your experience with us. Second, I have purchased Flex EA yesterday and I am interested to know which pairs are best for trading giving that I will apply the Flex hybrid strategy to all charts with a DD of 15% and a risk factor of 0.3. Awaiting for your responses. I plan to share with you the results after a month from now. Thank you.

      Yes you can trade 1 currency pair with every strategy if you wanted, but each instance of it will need a unique magic number to different it’s trades, which means the currency and max charts filter won’t work, which means it could trigger many strategies to trade at the same time.

      I suggest testing this in demo first ๐Ÿ˜›

    Hello, did you use the same strategy in the document section of the Flex EA download to get those shotgun high risk results? If not, what strategy did you use to get the 274.20 percent results with the shotgun results?

      The shotgun account is a vendor account, not mine. I believe it’s just the Shotgun strategy trading 16 pairs, including some high risk ones like GBPCHF, GBPJPY, EURAUD etc…

      Yea ive turned it on with my trendsurfer and using default settings for everything else. It seems to help get out of drawdowns quicker. It seems like it’s basically TrendSurfer + Default strategies all in one. It adds to orders in profit, and adds if the price goes against. Its too early to say but it looks like it could be a good money maker.

    Hi there,

    I am very new to forex trading and have been experimenting with a demo account. I’d be lying if I said I was doing well despite using indicators on MT4 hence I have been investigating EAs. Have read several reviews on different products and they all promise exorbitant ROI looking at their backtesting results. It is all rather overwhelming.

    The reviews above from you all seem promising. I do have a question which is to do with day trading. I am at work all 5 days but do have access to my MT4 platform. Has anyone tried day manual trading using this EA. If I were to invest in this EA I can automate it perhaps to the extent of alerting when to enter & close a trade & NOT to fully automate it where it does everything itself. A little too risky for my level of comfort.

    Any advice? Also is there anyone from Sydney AUS using this EA. I’d like to hear from you as well.

        This isn’t a full blown grid trading EA like Forex Hacked, it’s much much different.

        Each chart has a 10% DD stoploss, and only 4/20 are allowed to have open trades at the same time. I haven’t even come close to hitting the 10% DD on any of my charts in over 6 months of trading Flex.

        I am actually trading 25 pairs on Flex Hybrid with the out of the box settings, and am seeing similar results. I’ve been trading small lot sizes as shown on this screenshot, and am thinking of increasing them. Flex Hybrid does not add trades to its basket until strict conditions are met, so there is less risk than with full grid trading. I’ve been very happy with it so far.

      Of course there is, but you must first ask yourself if you’re willing to risk at least 50%+ of your account in the process?

      You could run Default strategy on 20+ pairs, and increase Max_Charts to 10 with 0.5 Risk.
      Or run Full-Grid on 10 or so pairs, low risk and Max_Charts 10

      You could essentially make 100% with any of their strategies if you can handle the risk.

      Are you using the out of the box settings on the FlexHybrid? I’ve been running the other strats for the past month on a demo account. Scalper, Half Grid and 3X Retrace trigger more trades but you have to be ready for steeper drawdowns. All but one (so far) recovered nicely, but not for the faint of heart.

        Yes out of the box settings for FlexHybrid, but changed risk to 0.3 and DD_stoploss to 30 trading on 20 pairs.

        I find the scalper more dangerous than the other 2 you mentioned. It’s great to pile in some quick cash with the scalper, but it can just as quickly get you in trouble.

    Two questions:
    1. is it better to use drawdown percentage or stop loss as a way of money management?
    2. i set my virtual trade to 1 and it seems to be trading well.. however the default was 6. is that ok?

    • Joe Stevens - Posts:

      Reply #150

      1. I use the DD_Stoploss percentage which is based on a per chart basis now. The 2xRetraceSL strategy uses a 100-120 pip stoploss and seems like it could be a great long term earner though, just not as big in profits. If you plan on using the real stop loss in pips, don’t set it too low or it will crush your profits.

      2. Setting virtual trades to 1, is essentially turning Flex into an almost full martingale EA, which is fine and can make a lot of money but can get risky very quickly. If you’re going to trade like this, I suggest using the lowest risk possible.

    Hi guys I am a Forex trader and have tried out many robots in the past and none of them have worked so before I buy and try the Forex Flex EA I would like to know if this EA is really winning on a consistent basis. I have looked at all the trade results on myfxbook, but have seen the same type of results with other bots I have tried in the past on a demo account and did not get the same results. Also the new Flex EA 3x Retrace strategy with an 83% win rate looks good so please give me some feedback guys so I can decide if I am going to buy this EA or not.

      This EA is based more so on mathematics than anything else, so there is no reason why demo results won’t transfer to real at almost 1:1 unless your broker is playing you.

    At 17:00 the 3X account opened (the myfxbook one) opened 2 cad trades, the drawdown got well over 30% as I watched it all day. My own opened the same trade yesterday as the 3X, but today opened no trades, while the myfxbook one opened a cad, nzd/usd and nzd/jpy, so has 3 pairs with 3 open trades.
    I think mine is set to wait 1 minute before opening trades, but if you look at the 3X you will see 2 trades opened that minute (doubling Lots). Hope it recovers for the guys sake who owns the account

    I am thinking of changing to 3X retrace, but because I don’t know how reliable the VPS is I am using 2X retrace. If I resave the templates to 3X can I add a stoploss like 2X does or will it ignore. The VT can be changed but can SL? Thanks. Asking before I try, as I logged into the forexflex website but there was no ‘contact us’ inside the members area. If I can add a SL for safety to the VPS MT4 I think I will. The results from 3X are better, and doubling instead of tripling will give me more profits…with the VT8 I use. I even started a myfxbook of my account. I think it is a great tool.

      If your VPS can run 2x retrace, it will have no problem running any other Flex strats.

      You can add a stoploss to 3x retrace, just select it from the strategy list, and then enter a RealStopLoss.

      Since you have only 400 dollars, it’s important that you let it calculate the lot sizes for you, which it does on the basis of the size of your account. If you leave it at the settings that are already preset, then it will do this for you.I bought it last week, and traded the default strategy on a 3800 dollar demo account. It traded it up to 3900 within 5 days taking three or four small trades. I then added yesterday the Scalper setting, and it took four or five pretty risky trades (which it eventually won by adding to the positions martingale-style) bringing the account up to 4062. I’m satisfied with this, though since I am conservative, I’m not sure I’m going to run the Scalper right away on the live account. On long trades, it seems to work by catching falling knives and then scaling in with larger and larger lot sizes martingale style until it can squeeze out a small profit when there is a pullback. The gurus tell you not to trade like this. If I want to sleep at night, it’s probably good advice.

        Hi Christopher, great name BTW…one of my favorite Saints!

        No, it just increases the lot size. I am getting quite a few and trades regularly but have not counted exactly. It just varies depending if does the additional trades, etc. This is the overall most consistent EA I have used since 2008.

        Happy Trading!

          Mag, to add that is all you have to do…the settings will be the default of strategy in background even though will show diff when looking at input tab settings. You can verify because some things like # of buys or sells will show on chart window for the strategy you are currently running.

          I did really well with gap down today on GBP/JPY and good thing I had 100% DD. Too close for comfort though on that pair and just added it since Julius mentioned so thanks again Julius but I took down the extra GBP pairs you mentioned for now. They made money but seems more risky than the 10 pairs forex flex list under documentation so just sticking with that now with flexhybrid, 100% DD and 0.7 risk. Joe mentioned that 100% DD and it’s working so pulling out profit already to do it again!

          Happy Trading!

            I think what others are missing about this EA and one reason why it is so successful is it closes all trades on all charts when at overall 1% gain. That’s also another reason the 100% DD ends up working out…

    Hi guys, I just bought it because of all the reviews here. Struggling with what settings to use to be conservative. I will set up a VPS on my $1330 account ECN go markets in the next couple of days.
    I think 7 pairs with 2X retrace, 3% drawdown, 18% a month so far…by the myfxbook. From what you guys are saying the flexhybrid is the other best one.
    But how come there is no myfxbook – even for a month or two? And how come the 99.9% backtests cannot be clicked on to check out?
    But if flexhybrid does as good as default 2 it should not be a problem. I am conservative and want about 100% a year, managed fx guys always lost my money and wanted 30% commission. Robots always lost. And trade copiers were $100+ a month. This was a spur of the moment decision. Hope we all profit.

      Robert, I also bought it because of all the reviews. I began the flex default on a demo account last Thursday with the “out of the box” settings. It seems to be behaving quite conservatively for me so far. To date (5 days) it has only opened and closed 4 long EUR/USD trades for an average of about 7 pips each. I guess it depends on what size you’re trading, but at 0.1 setting, it’s not much. In any case, it’s 4 for 4, so I’m not complaining.

        I’m doing well with it so far. The 2X is what I have on. I tested it (live) with flexhybrid, and it stayed open over the weekend on the flex, which I don’t want to do again.
        My settings are conservative. VT=8 (was 7 first night and gbpused opened 4 martingales to win $100) so I set them all to VT8 to feel safer. have 14 pairs on 2X, VT=8, risk=0.02, 4 positions not 5-the5th martingale will destroy account if it goes bad, and equity not balance, charts 3…too many at once if things go bad can = DD. maybe they are misnamed these strategies, from trades on myfxbook and mine. The 2X goes 00.1,0.03,0.09.027… and the 3X goes 0.01,0.02 etc…

        It was just the Flexhybrid that I could not find a myfxbook for.
        I like the 2X has a stoploss, and in reality actually increases lotsX3. I notice now that it is called 2X because it will only increase martingale twice. I use low risk 0.02 and 4 martingales with VT=8

    The first trade that Flex opened for me was a long EURUSD at the Asian open (7/5). I wonder if there is a script in the algorithm that instructs it to buy the gap? Also, I am wondering when it will close the trade to lock in a profit. (I am using the default settings.)

  • Julius - Posts:

    Also forgot to mention, flexhybrid is a lot safer than default. it opens the 1st trade and than only open the 2nd trade if a similar condition met, usually after 70 to 100 pips. Unlike default open 2nd trade after 21 pips.

    e.g 1st = 0.01, 2nd= 0.03 3rd= 0.09 i found 70% trade closed with 1st trade, 28% trade closed with 2nd trade, only very rare closed with 3rd trade.

    i found gbpnzd, gbpaud, gbpjpy, gbpchf trade often and profitable due to the nature of the currency, a lot of ups and a lot of downs, very volatile. gbpcad is the one closed with 3rd trade. but still very low risk.

    hope that helps. good lucks

        4. i trade 15 currencies at the same time, but max only 4 charts will be trading at any one time – default setting
        5. it is very safe with this setting and profitable too

    Hey Kim and others regarding 100% DD. I feel same as what Joe wrote regarding this, especially the way the new FlexHybrid Strategy works. When account reaches 100% profit I will withdraw profit.

    Here again is what Joe wrote:

    “I assume youโ€™re using the default risk and stop out percentage of 40% as well? I personally donโ€™t like the 40% stopout and prefer to just risk it all in true grid fashion. The 40% stop and running anything medium risk or higher gives Flex very little room for error. Just withdraw profits every double up or so, any account wipe should just be considered like a losing trade. If done right you should have more double ups than account wipes.
    You can also go the route of letting the account grow and grow. The bigger the balance the longer it can last through big swings. But this ends up resembling stock trading, the question becomes when do you get out with your profits before itโ€™s too late?

    Happy Trading!

    I’m not sure I understand why you would set StopLoss_DD to 100%. If a pair has gone over 50% in drawdown, and you are trading the FlexHybrid strategy, it has attempted to do 3 trades in grid fashion, all the trades would be heavily under the water and unlikely to come back for a significant time. Wouldn’t it be more prudent to just close the trades around the 30-50% mark and start again?

    I have the risk turned way up for the Default strategy, trading on 10 pairs, but only 2-3 charts maximum at any point in time (as I think it is rare to get 4 or more trades at once so higher risk is better, with fewer consecutive trades). The EA trades beautifully and drawdown doesn’t generally exceed more than 15%. It seems better to me to put your drawdown maximum near where 90% or more of typical trades run to.

    To me risking your entire balance doesn’t seem worth it beyond a certain amount of drawdown. Or perhaps I am missing something… I would be interested in other peoples view…

      strongly agree 100% is far far too much. i do find flexea 2.3 is very stable but still think the 1.0 risk and default 6 vt is not safe enough. i use 0.4 / 0.5 risk and default 7. that way, i can sleep and no worry. also, test your brokers, it acts very different with different brokers. ECN is STRONLY recommended.

      i trade both default and super preceise at the same time with all 10 pairs, so total 20 pairs. default vt=7, risk = 0.5. super precise VT=8, PS=22, risk = 0.4. dont trade very often but 90% win rate. very stable and profitable.

      I lose a lot money before because i over trade the account and want quick money, but after all 20%-30% is very doable with risk = 0.4 / 0.5.

    Overall great broker IMO to use Flex with is TradersWay, ask for Joe Carney and tell him Mike sent ya. He has best customer service in the industry bar none!

        Info from vendor:

        New Strategy “FlexHybrid” added. We’re very excited about the potential of this. This uses similar settings as the Default to open it’s first trade, but then any additional basket trades after that are only opened after those same conditions are met again, and again. This results in trades being very spread apart in a dynamic fashion within the basket allowing to survive in the worst of times. This is a very safe setting to use, however expect to have trades left open for days, maybe even weeks in rare cases. FlexHybrid is a good strategy to trade with 10 charts, on 0.1 – 0.5 risk with Max_Charts of 4-5.

      Right click the link and save as. Then when you attach Flex to a chart, on the inputs tab click the Load button and browse to where you just saved that .set file and it will change all the settings accordingly, then click ok.

    I’m trading 22 pairs with this on a $5k account with 1:400 leverage. The main difference here over the default settings is virtual trades set to 7, real trades lowered to 3, and trading a lot more pairs obviously ๐Ÿ™‚

          Hi JJ / everyone.
          Your results are a breath of fresh air to my mind. Quick summary I opened a $10k DEMO Acc. 20150429 with GCMFX. Trading DEFAULT only on AUD,EUR, GBPUSD – USDCHF & JPY Also (and clearly this is my mistake) XAUUSD.
          Results today are that the account has been stopped out 6 times and there is at the moment an Equity of $4583 Profit/Loss = $2560. There have been 260 trades in this time roughly (uncounted) Account History shows 30% of all trades are losses. Remember at this point, all pairs are trading the DEFAULT strategy only.
          In conclusion, Flex doesn’t trade all pairs!!
          I’ve been using EA’s since I first purchased FAPTurbo years ago. This isn’t something new or strange to me. I do see Flex as up there with the best & I will continue to take in great results like from JJ today & will succeed one day!
          Be carefull & trade well.

          • Joe Stevens - Posts:

            I assume you’re using the default risk and stop out percentage of 40% as well? I personally don’t like the 40% stopout and prefer to just risk it all in true grid fashion. The 40% stop and running anything medium risk or higher gives Flex very little room for error. Just withdraw profits every double up or so, any account wipe should just be considered like a losing trade. If done right you should have more double ups than account wipes.

            You can also go the route of letting the account grow and grow. The bigger the balance the longer it can last through big swings. But this ends up resembling stock trading, the question becomes when do you get out with your profits before it’s too late?

    I’m trying to clarify exactly how DD_StopLossPct functions. For example, if I have set DD_StopLossPct to 20%, does that mean that the maximum possible drawdown for that chart is 20% before it automatically closes all the trades for that chart only? If there are other charts they have their own settings so their trades are not affected, right? If you can clarify how that works I would really appreciate it.

    • Joe Stevens - Posts:
      May 24, 2015
      Reply #230

      If you set DD_StopsLossPct to 20 on GBPUSD, all your GBPUSD trades from Flex will close if their drawdown reaches -20% of your account balance(you can change this to equity in the settings). Trades from Flex on other pairs won’t be touched. I’m told a setting will be added in the next update to select if you want it to close all Flex trades, or just that specific pairs trades.

      Good to hear about your sucess. How long have you been trading ForexFlex please ?

      I have had ForexHacked and the Russian harmonic ZUP indicator running for three years now. (seperately) FH makes real dollars but its always losing real dollars in the long run. I know I need to be more hands on with it but, that does defeat the purpose of an EA.

      We’re currently seeing a pretty stale USD, is this resulting in big drawdowns with Flex?

      Again good to hear about your sucess,

    This thing just keeps getting better and better. v2.2 that was just released has some very cool new features. You can now essentially trade as many pairs as you want, and just set the Max_Charts setting to 4 or so. This way only 4 charts can have open trades at the same time. A lot of people gave this EA some slack cause of it’s lack of trading activity, well this certainly addresses that, and in a very clever and safe way.

    I use the following configuration and have around 20 to 40 trades per days and around 3-4 % daily return.
    – strategy : Scalper
    – risk : 4
    – accuracy : 79
    – leverage : 1:50 (very conservative, just change to 1:75)
    – i really strongly do not use very high leverage, very risky. i tested it and make money very fast, unless you have a lot of capital in the account, otherwise it will call margin and wipe out the entire account. it happen to me a few times before i learn

    again, leverage is very important, i really suggest you start from 1:50 … and increase it after 1 week…

    Also VPS is a must
    – ensure you enough CPU, i ran multple MT4 in the account and run out of CPU and am sure lost trades

    final words
    – plenty of capital (dont trade all 6 pairs if you do not have enough)
    – start with low leverage
    – VPS with fast cpu
    – you have to ensure that your setup can cope with market rally and you feel comfortable to go to sleep or go on holiday

    This EA really does work and believe me i have used many EA’s that have crashed and burned. I have reduced the default trading risk on mine to 0.2 using the default settings, it trades fine using the 0.5 default however when we see MAJOR shifts in currency prices then the EA can take you into major draw down. The reduction allows me to feel more comfortable when this happens, otherwise by the 5th trade you are into 2.1 Lot size. With the reduction trade 5 is only 0.68 ( my account size is 10k) -HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE

      No trades on my end either, from my experience with this EA this is perfectly normal during sideways market conditions like we’ve experienced so far this week. It trades the most during very volatile conditions or at the end of long swings.

    So is anyone showing a notable net profit with this? Also, how does this EA trade when the market/s change?

      Too early to tell for most it only just released a few days ago. It could take a week or longer to see your first trades especially with these sideways markets.

    With the default settings how much open trades with silver package?

      If you trade all 6 currency pairs with default settings, you can expect anywhere from 20-50 trades per month. It is highly dependent on market conditions and how volatile things are that month.

          Gold wont trade anymore than silver, it just gives you 4 live accounts to use it on instead of 1 with silver.

      That is normal Owen, it will take a while to build up those background market monitoring trades. Once those are in full effect, you will start seeing trades.

    I went to their site. But there is no much information like number of demos per license, MT4 600+ will work, list of currency pairs, time frame, name of developer & their past eas. I will appreciate if you could provide this information. Thanks – Moon

      Its mt4 build 600+ compatible.

      Currency pairs: EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, USDCHF, USDCAD, AUDUSD but you could potentially run it on just about any pair you want.

      Timeframe: M15

      Not sure who the developer is exactly, I will try to get that information.

        Joe, you are just wonderful. What a quick response from one of the busiest person.
        I forgot to ask how many demos are allowed under each package. Also can I set it to fixed lot instead of auto MM.

          It’s based on account number so it would be 1 demo or 1 live, but I’m sure you could e-mail in and ask for more demo accounts.

            Thanks Joe once again. I just received email response from Steve Westwood, this ea’s developer from Canada. I will purchase this ea on 04/14/14.

    Just wanted to let everyone know my experience so far in purchasing a silver membership. Signup and payment was a breeze and account was activated instantly.

    Downloaded and installed the EA (.ex4 and .dll), loaded it up on my account on 6 pairs using default settings. Took all of about 10 minutes.

    Support was quick to respond to my e-mail too. I guess we just have to wait and see how it performs which doesn’t appear like its going to be a problem.

        Thanks for all of your great help and advice, Joe. I have owned Forex Hacked for years. It is the only EA that has been profitable for me. As you know, it can also be quite dangerous if not used properly. It looks like Flex has good profit potential with less risk than Hacked, and that appeals to me. However, Flex is also more expensive. In your opinion, is it worth the extra cost to purchase Flex when I already have Hacked?
