is it possible to curve fit in sample optimization but on huge number of (intraday) trades?
Over 2000 trades.

I understand the danger of over optimization curve fit on relatively small number of backtest optimized trades (around 100...) but was wandering if much larger number of trades reduces this possibility.

I think you'll find it's possible to curve fit anything.

I think that time is more important than number of trades.
2000 trades in a month means nothing. 2000 trades over 10 years is much more useful.

Why? Markets change over time so you need information from a lot of different market circumstances.
