With a filter only changes of the order status lead to a file access. It will not be more than 20 per day. For about 100 file accesses per week I don't expect a problem.

Re: Data collection and backtest [SOLVED]

I guess "Download Data Before Backtesting" checkbox is activated. Can't check right now as MC is running on another machine.

The issue is then that if one day - the last day - is missing in the database the backtest is not started.
Correct, but without any hint not user friendly.
