I dont understand why when optimizing using NT default of even the genetic optimizer how I can get worse numbers when I expand the range of my parameters. It should never get worse when it has more choices including the ones that on a more restricted optimization showed better results (profit factor and cum profit unexpectedly goes down) What am i doing wrong?

You'll need to provide a couple specific examples as it's not possible to advise you based on your post. We need more details.
