There are no other details present concerning the features available with the package. No money-back guarantee is available which raises doubts about the dependability of the product.

As per the author, the EA has 15 strategies in total from which you can choose any that suits your custom portfolio. While the author fails to mention what strategies are used, he claims that the strategies are backtested and can be combined as per the user preference. He states that the approach does not involve toxic strategies like the grid, Martingale, night scalping, entry averaging, and recovery trades. 

Every trade is protected by a tight stop loss ranging from 17 pips to 88 pips. It works on the AUDCAD, AUDUSD, CHFJPY, EURAUD, EURGBP, EURJPY, EURUSD, GBPAUD, GBPCAD, GBPJPY, GBPUSD, USDCAD, and USDCHF pairs. Recommendations for the system include:

Customer reviews

A few user reviews are present for the FX EA on the MQL5 site. However, we could not find feedback for the FX robot on trusted third-party sites that support the user reviews on the promoter site. Since MQL5 promotes the product, there is a high chance of the testimonials being manipulated.

Verdict
Thorex provides 15 independent EAs in a single system. The multicurrency supporting EA has backtesting results and verified real trading results. However, the real trading stats reveal a high-risk approach and poor performance. Other drawbacks we identified in the ATS are the expensive pricing, lack of strategy explanation, and the absence of a refund.
