Can we get the old backtest back?

Or at least numbers in there for alpha and SPY's performance?

Also - when looking at old backtests, having the feature to look at the corresponding code was very useful.

Hi Stefan,

You can add /old at the end of the url to get the old backtesting view.
(Thanks to Quant Trader for pointing it to me).

Hi Stefan,

You can find the code on the new backtest page - it's under 'Activity > Code'. We're going to be adding a feature next week that will allow you to view a benchmark if you'd like. Thanks for the feedback!

Awesome thanks Abhijeet! Another tool I found useful for making sure that the algorithm was behaving correctly was being able to see trading activity in the bar below returns, if we could get this in the new backtester that'd be fantastic.
