Backtest's that fail during Initialize() still count against my total

I've found that sometimes the stock's I am trying to test with aren't in the data set. When this happens an error is thrown during Initialization and the test ends immediately, as it should. Even though the Backtest never actually tested any data, it still counts against my total...

This doesn't seem quite right. Thoughts?
Update Backtest








Hey @PeterWicks, firstly thank you for subscribing to QC -- we appreciate your support and don't worry about your backtest total. We are testing out the payment plans for now in reality you don't really have any limits :)

I'll make a separate thread to post stock symbols you couldn't find, a few users find these and if we record them we can pass it to @QuantQuote to fix.

We're considering moving to a Amazon charge per CPU hour model -- and maybe even letting you choose your amazon instance if you want a very powerful CPU. The only reason we need to charge is to cover Amazon and Exchange data fees which are both quite substantial. What do you think?

Best, JB
