Walk Forward Testing

Hello

I am just wondering how people interpret the results from a walk forward optimization? What do you look for? How do compare the good results from the bad ones ?

thanks

is you saved your exit price to the holding variable ATR.LX . would they not be the same value? How could you compare theym?

example
at the next bar,
if current exit price is smaller than previous bar's ATR.LX
then use ATR.LX instead of the exit price.

Next Bar vs Same Bar order entry

In power language most signals are defaulted to using , " next bar," as an entrypoint is there a way to use same bar instead? if so how would you word it
