I started working on a walk forward optimizer. I read the API document for optimizers. I'm struggling with the following:

a) how do you recommend I create the loop that steps through parameters and [x] bars of history? It's not clear how I would do this in the FirstRun / NextRun method as it only accepts parameter variables.

b) Not sure how i can handle multiple results after each step of the WFO.

Is it better to write something external to the entire optimization process?

a) The only thing that might work is altering the Bars object in NextRun for the next optimization run. You would want to call the Add/Delete methods of the Bars object, or use Bars.LoadFromFile (faster).
