I try to serialize a class,  I got a duplicate tag <Setup>
<Setup>
  <Setup entry="1" type="Long">

How can I get rid of it.  This is my code
    [XmlRootAttribute("Setups", IsNullable = false)]
    public class Setups
    {
        public int TradeType;
        // The XmlArrayAttribute changes the XML element name
        // from the default of "OrderedItems" to "Items".
        [XmlArray("Setup")]
        [XmlArrayItem]    public Setup[] Setup;

    }

    public class Setup
    {
        // The XmlAttribute instructs the XmlSerializer to serialize the
        // Name field as an XML attribute instead of an XML element (the
        // default behavior).
        [XmlAttribute("entry")]         public int _entry;
        [XmlAttribute("type")]          public string _typeString;
        [XmlIgnore]                     public string _type;
        [XmlElement("Name")]            public string _name;
        [XmlElement("Entry")]           public string _entryName;
        [XmlArray("Profit")]
        [XmlArrayItem("ProfitItem")]    public string[] _ProfitItem;
        [XmlArray("Stop")]
        [XmlArrayItem("StopItem")]
        public string[] _StopItem;
        [XmlElement]                    public int _EntryTicks;
        [XmlElement]                    public int _StopTicks;
        [XmlElement]                    public int _ProfitTicks;
        [XmlElement]                    public int _size;
    }
This is the output

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Setups xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <TradeType>99</TradeType>
  <Setup>
    <Setup entry="1" type="Long">
      <Name>Fade0</Name>
      <Entry>Band</Entry>
      <Profit>
        <ProfitItem>Turn1</ProfitItem>
        <ProfitItem>Item1</ProfitItem>
      </Profit>
      <Stop>
        <StopItem>Fixed1</StopItem>
        <StopItem>Auto1</StopItem>
      </Stop>
      <_EntryTicks>0</_EntryTicks>
      <_StopTicks>32</_StopTicks>
      <_ProfitTicks>4</_ProfitTicks>
      <_size>1</_size>
    </Setup>
    <Setup entry="2" type="Long">
      <Name>+5</Name>
      <Entry>Band</Entry>
      <Stop>
        <StopItem>Fixed</StopItem>
        <StopItem>Auto</StopItem>
      </Stop>
      <_EntryTicks>-5</_EntryTicks>
      <_StopTicks>7</_StopTicks>
      <_ProfitTicks>4</_ProfitTicks>
      <_size>1</_size>
    </Setup>
  </Setup>
</Setups>

you need a root element to wrap the Setup elements.
you can't have something like:
<Setups>
 <TradeType>
<Setup>
..
<Setup>
..
<Setup>

since you use Setups as the root element of the xml, i'd use SetupConfig as root element of Setup elements:
    [XmlRootAttribute("Setups", IsNullable = false)]
    public class Setups
    {
        public int TradeType;
        [XmlArray("SetupConfig")]
        public Setup[] Setup;

    }

    public class Setup
    {
        [XmlAttribute("entry")]
        public int _entry;
        [XmlAttribute("type")]
        public string _typeString;
        [XmlIgnore]
        public string _type;
        [XmlElement("Name")]
        public string _name;
        [XmlElement("Entry")]
        public string _entryName;
        [XmlArray("Profit")]
        [XmlArrayItem("ProfitItem")]
        public string[] _ProfitItem;
        [XmlArray("Stop")]
        [XmlArrayItem("StopItem")]
        public string[] _StopItem;
        [XmlElement]
        public int _EntryTicks;
        [XmlElement]
        public int _StopTicks;
        [XmlElement]
        public int _ProfitTicks;
        [XmlElement]
        public int _size;
    }

I try to use  [XmlElement] instead of  [XmlArray("SetupConfig")]. IT works better for me. Thanks

Why grade C?
I gave u a working solution and more important i explained why your code didnt which is not less important.
That should be grade B at least.
