I tried adding the Strategy Equity indicator to the radar screen but realised that it is not available in the list to choose from. I then went into the source code and noticed that in properties the radar screen option was not selected. So I selected it and compiled it again which made the indicator appear in the list.

However, when added to the radar screen, it always shows zero values even though the synced chart screen which has the same indicator attached displayed non-zero equity values.

What am I doing wrong here?

Many studies applied to RadarScreen (which BTW I do not use) are start data dependent.

Meaning enough data has to be loaded for output to show. How much data I can't tell you.

samsssrs,

the Strategy Equity indicator uses reserved words that are able to display strategy performance metrics for strategies applied to the same (!) chart. It cannot work in Radarscreen since strategy and indicator are applied to different applications.

Regards,

ABCTG

A strategy runs on a chart window and data in a chart window is not automatically available in another chart window or in RadarScreen. You can write code to create global variables to make data available in other windows and RadarScreen but this can be complicated.
