EmptyMovieClip / Stage Position

I’m having a heck of a time getting my movie clip on the stage postion where I want it (and eventually I’ll want 8-10 movie clips running on different stage locations at the same time.) I’ve tried numerous scripts methods, this is the last one and it’s still not moving out of 0 position:

this.createEmptyMovieClip(“my_mc”, 1);

var my_mcl:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
my_mcl.loadClip(“textgauge1.swf”, my_mc.container_mc),{x_:371.6, y_:76};
