Functions supported for optimization

To ensure that your strategy can be optimized for better performance, use strategy components that contain only functions supported for optimization.

The following table provides a list of functions supported for optimization by default:

You can optimize functions that are not included on the list as well, by adding them to the pyAllowlistFunction data transform. For more information, see Optimizing strategies with allow list functions.
