Data limited to 2014?

I've noticed that in my backtests that no transactions will take place until 2014. I didn't have this issue a couple days ago, so I'm starting to think that I might be using premium data somewhere? Can anyone tell me if any of this data is limited to 2014? Thanks

edit: Just realized that I probably ran out of memory. Is there a way to monitor memory usage, like there is in notebook?

Hi Jack,

I don't see anything in that import statement indicating the use of premium data. Generally, for those data sets, the older data is free to use in research and backtest without a subscription. If you hit a time frame for which either 1) the data isn't available because the date range goes too far or 2) you're attempting to backtest over a time period that requires a data subscription, you'll get an error stating as such.

If you can share more of your algorithm, the community might be able to help further!

Thanks
Josh
