Issue With Creating a Rolling Window Bootcamp Backtester

Hi everyone,

I'm working on the Creating a Rolling Window bootcamp.  However, when I submit a backtest nothing comes up in the chart area.  Then when I submit another backtest I get an error message of:

API Error Message: The account owner has reached the limit of available concurrent backtests (1 backtest)

Is there a way to view all running backtests?  Maybe the backtest I submitted stalled and I need to manually stop it.

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

According to https://www.quantconnect.com/upgrade the free version, does not allow parallel backtesting. In order to cancel a currently running backtest to start another one, I usually have to close the backtest tab, rebuild the algorithm, then press the backtest button again.

Hi Jason,

The problem is I am unable to do what you are suggesting.  If this were the normal algo lab that would work but for the Bootcamp it's a little different.  I really think a Backtest is looping or stalled but I have no way to clear it.

Hi Jared and Jason,

This problem has been resolved.  I was able to fix this issue via a suggestion from the chat room.  I didn't realize it was possible to open the Bootcamp script in the "My Projects" section, but looking back I should have guessed this was possible.  Opening the Bootcamp script in "My Projects" caused the buttons in the top right to come back in and I was able to stop the backtest.  Maybe this is a bug in the bootcamp front end?  Should these buttons in the top right be available in the Bootcamp screen?

Hi Chris, those buttons are intentionally not there to provide a simpler user interface for the training environment. Thank you for the feedback though we'll look into making the Boot Camp experience better.
