    Backtesting multiinstrument strategy wrong date range

    I'm backtesting multiinstrument strategy on a date range(for example 01.01.2011 - 12.01.2011). If there is a symbol in a list which is traded only part of that range (since 06.01.2011) all strategy executing only on the range of this instrument(since 06.01.2011).
    How can I solve this problem? Is there any way to check if instrument was traded during the whole range I need before using Add(instrument)?

    Hello nysetrader,
    Thanks for writing in and I am happy to assist you.

    You can check time of the first bar and take proper steps
    Code:
    if (CurrentBar == Math.Max(0, BarsRequired))
    {
    	//do something
    }
    Please let me know if I can assist you any further.

      I think I can use your code in OnBarUpdate(). And I need to use it in Initialize() before Add(). Should be smth like this:
      protected override void Initialize()
      {
      if(EnoughData on Symbol)
      {
      Add(Symbol, PeriodType.Minute, 1);
      }
      }
      How can I check it?

        Hello nysetrader,
        Unfortunately there is no supported way of checking the data without loading it first.
