    what is the point of what if scenarios if I have to manually try all the billions of combinations eg time date months?

    same applies for QuantAnalyzer

    You have to manually click thousands of time  different combinations Trades in days, hours, and months

    The point is simply to filter out hours or days most often and see the impact on the results. You have a quick overview of what ot “filter out” on the Trade Analysis pane

    Once you get the “weak point” you can modify your strategy accordingly.

    but many of these analysis cant be applied to the strategies with “pending orders” – so its only possible for market orders strategies

    but WHAT IF is “nonsense” at all – filtering something from history could lead to overoptimisation – if you cherrypick only some trading days or hours you will mostly fail in the future.

    Yes, some general points could be positive – like trade on high volume trading hours – like EU or US opening, but nothing more i am afraid
