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 Most other grid systems out there open trades with no specific market conditions required, or use very basic outdated indicators which has always proven to fail.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!

      I don’t think Flex has to worry as much about brokers starting to fight it’s success like the old days of Asian scalpers. But I get the sentiment of wanting to keep something that makes you money private πŸ˜‰

      As for the private group thing, I’ve actually been thinking about setting something up on the site for that. Like a private little Flex forum to share settings/strategies/results.

        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.

      Jul 31, 2015 @ 12:08 pm

      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.

    • Christopher Reply
      Jul 25, 2015 @ 0:12 am

      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.

      • Sidsix Reply
        Jul 25, 2015 @ 1:55 am

        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.

  • Darien Fawkes Reply
    Jul 21, 2015 @ 3:28 am

    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 Reply
      Jul 24, 2015 @ 17:28 pm

      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.

    • Joe Stevens Reply
      Jul 24, 2015 @ 17:34 pm

      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.

  • robert rawson Reply
    Jul 16, 2015 @ 5:05 am

    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.

    • Joe Stevens Reply
      Jul 24, 2015 @ 17:37 pm

      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.

    • Christopher Reply
      Jul 10, 2015 @ 15:50 pm

      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.

        Jul 13, 2015 @ 14:01 pm

        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.

          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!

            Jul 12, 2015 @ 17:58 pm

            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.

      • robert rawson Reply
        Jul 13, 2015 @ 4:36 am

        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…

        Hi Mike,
        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 Reply

    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

      I recently bought ForexFlex and am running the default settings on the six major pairs in a demo account right now. (It has not opened a trade during the two days it’s been up.) I’ve been reading the posts and am curious why people prefer to turn the risk way up. I don’t want to blow out my account right away once I go live. Can someone explain to me the advantage here?

        1. go for the flexhybrid
        2. use a ECN account,
        3. use risk 0.2
        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

      Been trading a mix of x3Retrace and FlexHybrid strategies on 20 pairs… This week has been unreal so far. I’m watching my fap turbo, rev trader and others just get destroyed this week because of the Greek volatility, but Flex is just thriving in it.

      I love the fact it has over 10 strategies to chose from, very addicting robot to trade with let me tell you lol.

    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 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?

    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…

      Jun 24, 2015 @ 14:02 pm

      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.

        Jul 8, 2015 @ 20:17 pm

        Thanks Julius, I added all the GBP pairs you mentioned to run FlexHybrid on. That is the strategy I personally reco with all default settings except risk at 0.7 and DD @ 100%.

    Jun 22, 2015 @ 21:08 pm

    John, it is very easy…

    I reco for starting out (and what I do even after using EA’s since 2008) just use the new FlexHybrid Strategy with all default settings except me personally I changed risk to 1. and DD 100%…changed nothing else and running on all 10 charts that vendor recommends.

    Get a VPS!

    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!

    I have used just about every EA and top manual trading systems out there and Flex is currently my overall favorite! Especially with the 75% off, great deal…all IMO!

    Happy Trading!

    I’d appreciate if someone could explain why the higher the account balance the lower the leverage should be. For example, on the FH website it is suggested that account leverage should be set at 100:1 or 200:1 for accounts over $5000 and higher leverage for smaller account sizes. Thanks in advance for any guidance offered.

        Jun 7, 2015 @ 18:38 pm


        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.

    JJ, I also notice you have floating to not close until 5% instead of default 1%. So you actually have no stop loss if at 100% right? and waiting for bigger close with floating 5%?

    Thanks again JJ, I loaded your sauce and it’s set right regarding trailing, etc. Looking forward to some gains! I lowered risk for now…only thing I changed. So you think it’s better to set DD at 100% rather than the default 40%?

          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.

    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 Reply
      May 24, 2015 @ 1:55 am

      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.
