"Building Algorithem" (Backtesting to debug) using Pipeline

It takes forever to see results after pressing "Building Algorithem" when tried against Pipeline samples. I use this button to debug. Is there anyway to fix this? Should I avoid certain functions within Pipeline to avoid such slowness?

Hi Ujae,
We are actually in the middle of doing work to speed up the feedback cycle for these algorithms. In the next day or two you should see some changes that get you data back faster.

However, it's worth noting that requesting data for many fundamental fields is what really will slow down your pipeline. We have a bigger project in the works to speed this up, but it will take longer.
