when i backtest a filter and I hit "test" it will sit there processing the backtest till i hit the "abort" link, this is after waiting 20 minutes for a 4 month backtest period and I choose 2006 for this reason,

BUT...after hitting abort I get results from my backtest and can view the results by clicking my filters link...

any way of correctly this?

Are you clicking the "refresh" link while waiting for your results? At this time, the page/status will not refresh on its own.

If you are clicking "refresh" it sounds as if your browser may have cached the main backtest listing page. Support

no i was not hitting the refresh link, i had no idea i had to but once i did it worked fine, thanks.

how long should a backtest take anyway? Does doing a 2003-2004 backtest take longer than a 2006? what is the average wait time? thanks

Usually it takes less than 20 sec, unless you have hundreds of lines in your filters !
I suggest you try another browser, empty the cache memory, try a very simple filter to see if it comes from your filter.
Good luck.
