For instance, when backtesting continious non-adjusted ES futures, i got the following message from TS:

- You strartegy will begin calculating on 09/28/2000 but the data required for Look-Inside-Bar Back-testing is only available starting on 08/25/2016. Strartegy calculation prior to 08/25/2016 will not use Look-Inside-Bar testing.

I'm not a TS expert but I've never seen that message before. @kevinkdog can u help?
