I want to enter trades using the quick trade bar, and then have a strategy automate exits. But in simulation, this strategy statement results in all zeroes:

print(currentshares,marketPosition,entryprice);

Is there a way to link the strategy to the simulated position?

You can find a technique for this in the Tradestation forums. It's called something like "ContinuousAdoptRealWorldPosition".

This solved my problem:

In the bottom of Customize Studies and Strategies popup, select
[X] Generate strategy orders for display in TradeManager's Strategy Orders tab
[X] Automate execution using {your account number} account with confirmation {on or off as desired}

In Customize Studies and Strategies / Strategy Propeties for All Strategies on this Chart / Automation, select
[X] Strategy will fill non-historical orders .... etc ...
[X] Adopt the real-world position for the current account
