    I am looking into this software and it looks really good. I had a few questions on the speed of the back testing and optimization.

    Back testing
    1) How long does it take to produce a back test report?
    2) How much data was tested? Example -5 min bars – 5 years back.
    3) Was the test run over bar or tick data?

    1) Did you use Brute or Genetic optimization?
    2) How many inputs?
    3) How much time did it take to produce results?
    4) How much data was tested?
    5) Was tick or bar data used for the test?

    Does anyone have an idea of how any users they have? I will probably have more questions later. Thanks, Mike
