Speed please

Hi Q,

Can we have faster backtests? If capacity is an issue you could restrict the number of backtests run by a user.

Best regards,
Pravin

You can use Zipline on your local machine, I have done this and saw 2-4x speedup with my laptop.
With some hard-core power monster server you probably could do much better. The downside of course is: you have bring your own data, which it sounds like you are doing anyways.
