Positions

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Definition

Holds an array of Position objects that represent positions managed by the strategy. This property should only be used when your strategy is executing orders against multiple instruments.

 

Index value is based on the the array of Bars objects added via the AddDataSeries() method. For example:

 

First Bars is ES 1 Minute
Secondary Bars is ES 5 Minute
Third Bars is NQ 5 Minute

 

Positions[0] == ES position
Positions[1] == Always a flat position, ES position will always be Positions[0]
Positions[2] == NQ position

 

 

Tips:

For single instrument scripts, please see Position object
For a real-world Account Positions, please see PositionsAccount

 

 

Property Value

An array of Position objects.

 

Syntax
Positions[int index]

 

 

Examples

ns


protected override void OnStateChange()
{
    if (State == State.Configure)
    {
        AddDataSeries("ES 09-14", BarsPeriodType.Minute, 5);
        AddDataSeries("NQ 09-14", BarsPeriodType.Minute, 5);
    }
}
 
protected override void OnBarUpdate()
{
    Print("ES position is " + Positions[0].MarketPosition);
    Print("NQ positions is " + Positions[2].MarketPosition);
 
    // Alternative approach. By checking what Bars object is calling the OnBarUpdate()
    // method, we can just use the Position property since its pointing to the correct
    // position.
    if (BarsInProgress == 0)
        Print("ES position is " + Position.MarketPosition);
    else if (BarsInProgress = 2)
        Print("NQ position is " + Position.MarketPosition);
}
