Preinitialize indicators with old data before the backtest starts
is there a way to pre-initialize the indicators with data before the actual backtest starts?
I want to optimize my strategy on the last 1000 data points, but I have a couple of 1000 more data points available before the ones I actually want to optimize on. Can I add these earlier data points to the mix in order to "prewarm" for instance my long MA indicators so they are already available from the first tick in my optimization data points?
I hope that question makes sense.
