Hello folks, I would like to know if the Strategy Tester can go faster?

I noticed you can change the speed (Slower/Faster), but the fastest speed is not too fast, I think.

I am not sure, but if you are optimising or testing, go to Agents, right click and in allow to use, check all 3.

You are talking about visualization mode I think. If you need faster test don't use visualization mode.

Have you optimized your code ?   often people do things on every tick that they only need to do once per bar and often they do things every bar that they only need to do every few bars, etc . . .  huge gains in performance can be realised . . .
