Why are backtest limits changed?

Why is it capped to 3 concurrent backtests instead of 3 backtests per minute for free users?

Update Backtest








Because certain users were abusing it and draining most of the cloud resources for themselves to run optimization jobs. The backtesting platform is not designed for optimization (running 10+ backtests with slight parameter tweaks).

Now we've finished options and futures; optimization will be our next task. When thats ready you can submit more than 3 in parallel using our formal optimization feature.
