Hello,

For some reason, I cannot place orders using my automated strategy. I can manually put in a limit order but not from my strategy. My code is below. I made sure automation was on without account confirmation. I checked the max number of bars field, that is fine. Looked around everywhere on tradestation and could not figure this out.

Can someone please help?

Thank you!!!

Ryan

Your syntax looks okay. There are a few things to look at:
  1. Was the limit price hit? A limit order might not get filled if the limit price was blown away (i.e. gapped past the price)
  2. Did you check the Trade Manager to see what happened to the order? This may give you a clue.... if it is not there, then the strategy did not send it
  3. Are you using delayed data rather than real-time?
  4. Do you have the correct account selected? Do you have account confirmation turned on or off?

Try changing the LIMIT order to a STOP order.
Also, which execution broker are you using ? i.e. Interactive, Rithmic, etc...
