I've been using "Walk Forward" in Multicharts for backtesting and it works great but when I try to use it in the Portfolio Backtester the Walk Forward check box is greyed out so I can't click it. Is this a limitation of the Portfolio Backtester? Or a missing setting?
Example screen shot is attached.

I was wondering if someone could confirm if "walk forward" is greyed out for them when performing a Portfolio Backtest? Thanks

Too bad, since walk-forward optimizations are a great way to test the robustness of a trading strategy and get a better picture about what future performance might be expected.
