hoang101483,

the original order in your code was a stop order and needed a stop price - this is what you left in the order. As the market order has no stop price, you can remove it and change.
 
Code
m_BBandLE.Send(m_LowerBand.Value);
to
 
Code
m_BBandLE.Send();
Regards,

ABCTG

Thanks ABCTG,

That worked. I was to to exit at market. But another issue arise where if I already have an open position. It simply close at market. It wouldn't enter another order. For example if there a LONG position open, when signal trigger I want to Sell at market, then submit another Sell order. I basically want to reverse at each signal. There is a way around this code?

Another issue was that If I already have a SHORT position for example. If the signal give another sell signal, it would add another Sell order.

Basically all I want is Enter/Exit at market without adding another position in the same direction.
