This is pretty profitable... if you don't get greedy. I just stared a couple weeks ago and my wins are going up steadily. I have been playing around with the settings and did discover that the Trend Surf is still busted. The Trail Mode and Trend Mode don't work together. The Trend Mode is supposed to take multiple trades along a trend, which it does well, but while this mode is on, the Trail Mode which is is supposed to have a trailing stop that follows with your trades to lock them in as it moves along is not functioning with it. I had two trades that went down a trend and things were looking very nice, but when I came back later I discovered that the Stop Loss did not go and that many the last couple trades triggered were losing. The early trade(s) along the trend were still in profit so the loss wasn't total, but it could have been.
However, 'Steve' at customer support is aware of the issue and working on it. He did reply with a day. Of the other strategies I tried, I have found the X3 retrace default to be profitable with high % win trades and am trying out the Flex Hybrid strategy to see how it does right now.

Yes I'm aware there is an issue with the trailing mode kicking in with the trend mode on. I'm working on a viable fix for it.
