Back

Backtests aren't running to the set end date.

I wrote the start and end dates as

SetStartDate(2002, 10, 1);
SetEndDate(2020, 05, 25);why does the back test run to 2005 and just stop?
I've had this problem before and it would be great if someone could explain why and how to solve it.Also this was code just copied and pasted from the Liquid Value Stocks tutorial lesson but with RiskManagement added.
Update Backtest

Hi I changed line 10 to Daily Res and it loaded fine for me .

UniverseSettings.Resolution = Resolution.Daily;

Hi Yuanming Yao,

The algorithm needs to implement the OnSecuritiesChanged method in the alpha model to keep track of the securities in the universe. After doing so, we just need to change the loop inside the alpha model to

foreach (var security in _activeSecurities){
...
}

This fixes the error messages that were being produced and enables the algorithm to continue executing. The algorithm only stops now because of reaching the maximum order limit. See the backtest below for reference. Note that the universe has been reduced in size to speed up the debugging process.

Best,
Derek Melchin
