Dear community, 

I am new to this, and have been trying to figure out how the framework works. I finished tutorial like three times regarding the algo framework. 

First off, to play with these modules, I selected all modules from the selection, for example, SmallCapGrowthStocks for universe, CboeVixAlphaModel for alphamodel and followed by portfolioconstruction, excution, risk modules.

My question here is once I add these modules, isnt a backtest supposed to spit out some result? Since the universe module should select symbols and based on that, Alpha model generates insights. Then, excution model should excute in my understanding. (also with realtime risk management module) 

Only success I have so far is with the code from the tutorial. 

Would you please let me know what I am missing here? Any documents or detailed video tutorial are welcome.
