I'm looking froward to more detail of your walk forward analysis. For all the testing I've done, I have not seen any examples where walk forward was of any benefit. So, as I say I look forward to what you present here. I would truly like to see it work.

It's not something that works or not, it's just a different approach to analyse an EA

I have written a new article the last days where I try to explain how WFA works and why it is the logical successor of backtesting.

When I am back home on Monday/Tuesday, I will first release this article and then the tool itself a few days after - so stay tuned
