Multicharts Portfolio Backtester has become so slow

Postby randomname » 25 Oct 2008

Two revisions ago the backtester was so much faster I could test 100 at a time. There were some problems with some of the drawdown numbers, but now it is so slow to test 25 symbols. What has happened? Is there any possiblity of adding intra bar testing?

Hi randomname,

Could you please specify what version you are talking about? Is it the 4.0 release or the 5.0 beta 1? What kind of requests did you make? (how many bars did you have in your charts?) What settings did you use for your strategy? (how many orders were there?) What page did the report open on?
5.0 beta 1 portfolio has many new features (for example, new money management, extended report, correlation).

We need a testing case. We would need your portfolio workspace. If you were using signals other than those that come with the program, we would need the codes as well. What do you mean when you say that you 'could test 100 at a time'. Are you talking about backtesting or optimization? What do you mean by 'at a time'? Could you please cite more precise figures?

Thank you.

Best regards.
