Problem on multi datafeeds with different time range
I tested a strategy feeding two data into cerebro . The first data is from 2017-12-01 to 2017-12-31; the second is from 2017-12-18 to 2017-12-31. Both is daily freq. When I printed both of them day by day, the first data before 2017-12-18 was not printed out. What is the problem?
@ab_trader Thank u. Actually printing is just a test, what I need is that if I can trade the first data before 2017-12-18. For the reason I may test strategies with thousands of instruments with different date range ,and the strategy requires to do some trade earlier when some of data haven't begun, is there any solution to it?
@alicc yes, described above.
Your problem it's called "survivorship bias".
And the reason for not getting into
nextis a method in which all buffers are guaranteed to deliver data.
