UserSeries in MySystem Class

I want to use a User Series in MySystem Class.  It does not initialise.  Should it be registered in the MySystem Class?  If so, how should it be constructed?  I currently have this in Startup():

DailyEquityTotal = new UserSeries();

but it does not seem that null is working.  What do I add for Symbol, as it is not linked to a symbol.

Yes, you need to pass it a Symbol.  You might just use Symbols.First() to pass it a somewhat arbitrary symbol.

On the other hand, if the series isn't associated with a symbol, is there any reason you need to use a UserSeries?  You could just use a List<double> or RList<double>.

Thanks Daniel.  I want to have a chart for this (it is the total equity of a CFD portfolio).  As I understand, you can not have a chart for a RList.

Hi Johan,

Charts also need to be associated with a symbol.  So you could pick a symbol to put the chart on, or put it on all symbols.

Another option would be to write your own system results plugin.  That will let you add a tab to the system results where you control the UI, so you could draw the chart there yourself.

Thanks Daniel.  My C# is at this stage not advanced enough for a Results Plugin.  Are there any plugins I can have a look at to learn a bit?

I have posted another question on the System Results plugin, but am struggling to display the UserSeries as a chart.  After simulation is run, the specific symbol is not on the Trade List - where can I see the chart for the UserSeries?  Here is extract from code.

public class MySystem : MySystemBase


    public UserSeries portfolioEquity;



    public override void Startup()


        //Perform initialization or set system wide options here



        portfolioEquity = new UserSeries();

        SystemData.IndicatorManager.Register(portfolioEquity,Symbols.First(), "DEQ");

       portfolioEquity.ChartSettings.ChartPaneName = "EquityCurve";

        portfolioEquity.ChartSettings.Color = Color.Blue;

       portfolioEquity.ChartSettings.DisplayName = "Equity Curve";


    public override void NewBar()






        foreach (MySymbolScript systemPosition in SymbolScripts)


            totalEquity +=systemPosition.equity;

            totalSystemInterest +=systemPosition.todayInterest;




        portfolioEquity.SetValue(0, totalEquity);

The source code for the system results plugins that ship with RightEdge is included for reference in the samples that are installed with RightEdge, under RightEdgePlugins\SystemResults.  So you can look at that code to see how the current ones are implemented.

You can open up a chart for any symbol in the simulation by double clicking it in the "Symbol Results" tab of the system results.  If the tab is not visible, you can show it in the View \ System Results menu, and you can enable it by default for future simulations in the "System Results" tab of the RightEdge options.
