Q216 - Restart QS every time to get actual data
This is a Feature Request with 2 votes

If I use a custom universe and I run a backtest in the already opened QS program window, then only the data up to that day I started QS will be considered. To get the actual daily data, I have to restart QS each time. Is there no possibility to consider the actual day without having to restart QS every time?

You mean, you run a backtest, then leave the Model window open, and run the backtest the next day? The Model window does not update the data in this case since the symbols that are loaded have not changed. If it's important we can add this check.

Yes. I think it makes sense that also the backtest data is always up to date by EOD...
