Description

Some-times there are more holidays in a year or a market than in another.
But it could be important for you that:
 - each start of the in-sample walk-forward test window start on 1st of January each year, and ends on 1st of June same year.
 - each start of the out-of-sample test window start on 1st of June the same year till 31 os Dec.
It would be beneficial to be able to set those dates as start/end of the back-test / walk-forward time-window in terms of set dates. 
Currently you can only set the number of days/bars only.
