Maybe everybody already knows this, but if your backtests are taking a long time to execute, here are some tips to speed them up:

1. Place rules that will eliminate a larger number of stocks first (higher up).

2. Use complex rules last.

3. Use simple rules first (higher up).

Changing the order of your rules in a filter can greatly speed up your backtesting, leaving more CPU time for me!
