problems when using cerebro.optstrategy

  • I am new to backtrader. I tried to use the the optimizer and changed the code from:
    maperiod=range(10, 11))

    But after changing the code, it stuck at the step after running the code. In the cmd windows, there are some print as below. I appricate it very much if someone could solve my issue.

    By the looks of it ... it could a problem with your Python installation. The error is deep in the stack.

    It could of course have to do with your code snippet, but the sample you post is too small to conclude anything.
