portfolio backtester problem

Postby cael » 06 Jul 2010

I have the same problem with both version 5.5 gold and version 6 beta 2. When the number of symbols gets large (say above 100), the data loading seems to hang.

I see this problem whether I use metastock daily data or esignal daily data. Am I doing something wrong?

Dear cael,

Are you talking about Portfolio Backtester? If yes, there is a limitation of 100 symbols in Portfolio Backtester. MultiCharts Pro does not have such limitation.

Yes, I am refering to the portfolio backtester. I am aghast there is a 100 symbol limit. First it doesn't tell me that there is a limit but just sits there? 2nd you want to skin me 10,000 bucks to do portfolio testing even for daily charts.

I actually bought AB to do portfolio testing but the extra programming is killing me. I do something there I need to re-implement it on multicharts.
