How To Set Backtest Time Ranges

Example how to set the time range window to be backtested for both entries and exits. Additional examples are also included showing how to set the date range and toggle plot visibility.

By incorporating this code with your own strategy's logic, it will allow you to backtest various time windows.

Much gratitude to @LucF and @a.tesla2018 for help with including ':1234567' for time ranges on weekends. Thank you both!

@allanster, alright, thanks. I appreciate the reply.
@allanster Thanks for the post.

I was playing around with my strategy to fix the backtest time range part.

Your piece of code for back test time range is what I was exactly looking for and worked perfectly for me.
