Over 4.5 years, this algorithm tested daily made 75%, tested minute by minute lost 71%. I was using this algorithm to learn the schedule_function. I tried to buy AAPL every day at 9:30 and sell it at 10:30. The minute data worked as expected. Please help me understand why the day data worked so differently. I have attached that backtest.
