Hi, simple question, I'm wondering if its possible to have a test automatically reset the principle each year, or just to queue up multiple testing runs. I'm trying to do a take-one test set to finish optimizing a model without picking a 'lucky' value set with some ridiculous SL and TP. Anyone know if its possible to do this?
