Not Enough series error in Portfolio Backtester

Postby 2haerim » 17 Mar 2009

See the attached picture.

I haven't used Portfolio BackTester (PBT).

Can anyone explain why I got this error?

It happens, because you use different resolutions in the portfolio.
You mix 1 minute, 5 minutes and daily.
You should use days back in this case. Set at least 50 days back to get results.

I tried again using "100 days back". Now I got another message shown in the attached picture.

In case you suspect the feed plugin, I used tsGSDataFeed and also imported data from 2008/10/09 before running the backtester.

Please let me know what to try next.

This message means that Portfolio backtester couldn't get the data from your GlobalServer. Are you sure you have a trade data for that period?
If it is s bug please contact our helpdesk.

GS has plenty of data. See the attachment.

PBT worked only for more than 73 days back, but not for less days back.
See the second attachment.

.pws file is attached too. => Not allowed to upload.
