Backtest on multiple stocks?

Is there a way to backtest on 100's of stocks, rather than just the index or an etf that follows an index? I would like to test on MSFT, AAPL, IBM, etc but without having to list every individual stock on the market. Is there an easy way to do this?
Thanks for any help

Hey Austin! You are currently required to specify the securities you want in the Initialize() method. In the future we'll have a 'universe selection' feature that would allow you to specify some requirements, such as belongs to SP500, or has a certain market cap.
