I noticed that too. It does show that this is equity draw down, which could represent several open negative trades that await pull back. The balance line on the graph still shows profitable progression.

Sometimes you get the bear; sometimes the bear gets you.

Oh yeah, I went back and looked and this account is currently carrying 14 negative trades. Of course these are not realized losses as yet and may pull back before being stopped out. This would be something to consider in your setting for loss mitigation by limiting the number of open trades the program has at any given time. It's a powerful feature to help in your risk management.

This was also one of the reasons I've been staying away from Trend Surfer Strategy for the moment.

It takes many trades along a trend (in the case of this account there are 7 open trades on NZD/CAD!). This problem I see right now is that it took multiple trades IAW the Trail Trigger function, but the Trailing Mode, which is supposed to lock in trades with a moving trailing stop is not functioning currently. Steve at Forex Flex Support is working on the issue at this time, and has replied back to me yesterday.

Once this is fixed, this strategy can be a big money maker for big moves in the market.

Hi,

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.

This one is listed with the same name but has much better performance stats. https://www.myfxbook.com/members/flexea/flex-ea-trendsurfer-real/1561706

I sent a message to the support desk. Hope they will share their settings for that account.

Good! but I still waiting for them to reply to my emails.
Don't know why nobody answer to my emails. is the support@forexflexea.com the right address?
I'm close to ask a refund if they keep ignoring my messages!
