I found a problem when I use Ninjatrader walkforward back test, the final result is not accurate. For instance, I run a 5 day optimization and 1 day back test for 1 month, the walkforward results are not 1 day plus 1 day. Some include 2 or 3 days back test result, so I wonder how to fix this problem

I believe this result is caused by the session template you are using. You'll either need to choose another template or create your own.

But after I create my own session, in the walkforward test day, it shows the day before the actual day.
