On the backtest summary list screen there is a checkbox that allows selection of multiple tests. Then there is a button at the bottom of the list that allows you to “Delete Checked”. What I would like to see is another bulk action button added, “Rerun Checked”, to rerun the backtest for all of the checked boxes.

My logic is this: Let’s say I have 10 backtests defined with various periods and entry/exit criteria, but all are using the same entry “saved filter”. If I want to see the effect of making a change in the saved filter, all I would need to do is select all of the affected backtests and click on “Rerun Checked”. Currently, the only way I can see the effects of a change in a saved filter is to individually edit every backtest, save it, and then run the test.

In addition, it would be terrific if we could have the backtests take every trade that fires. Instead of not taking another trade on that symbol because it is already in it, allow us the option with a checkbox to "Take all Trades". This way we can scale into positions and still get results on all the trades entered for that symbol. Very much appreciated if you would incorporate this!

I would also like the ability to run backtest over all available dates. Little intense on the servers but it would make my experience so much better.
