Live Trading with Limits Example

Ok, I've been in programming for over 20 years and worked about 7 years as a financial advisor.  However, I'm new to algorithmic based trading. I've wanted to take a careful approach as I am learning.  My goal is to only trade based on daily indicators after market open.  I also want to use limits, so I don't risk sharp price changes before my order is filled.  I start with a list of stocks that I have carefully chosen based on fundamentals.  This example is based on code that I'm using in my live trading.  I just used some ETFs as example investments.  I have a lot of comments in the code.  I hope people find this helpful.  It took me a lot of time to figure out how the events work in live trading verses backtesting.  I'm open to any questions or comments.

I'm still working through the learning curve and like to study other people's code, so I appreciate the level of comments you added. Thank you.
