How can I speed up a strategy backtest?
- Limit the Data Range of your backtest:
- If you are backtesting against many securities (such as index constituents), it doesn't make any sense to calculate the buy-and-hold across all securities in the DataSet. Instead, set the Benchmark Buy & Hold to a specific symbol, for example $SPXTR (S&P 500 Total Return Index) inside File->Preferences->Backtest Settings, and change the field Benchmark Buy & Hold.
