Default Running batch backtest [on multiple symbols]

I have a strategy that I test on 50+ different symbols. Is there a way to automate the process?
Meaning, running it on the first symbol, wait for it to finish, run it on the second, wait, run on the third, and so on...

I don't need to actually see the results of each test, because I already export them inside the strategy code.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello gogetit,

There isn't a way to setup this batch process but you should be able to do what you want running against a list.

Setup a list in the instrument manager, and then from the strategy analyzer: Right click on this list and select Backtest.
