StopMarketOrder Not Trigerring


I am trying to get my algo to place a StopMarketOrder, but each time I try it seems to skip this line of code.

if self.smafast.IsReady and self.smaslow.IsReady:
            if self.smafast.Current.Price > self.smaslow.Current.Price:
                self.Log("Trade Triggered!")
                if float(float(self.PortValSell) / float(self.Value_of_EURUSD)) < 1000:
                    self.Quantity_Sell = 1000
                    self.StopOrder_Sell = self.StopMarketOrder("EURUSD", self.Quantity_Sell, self.StopLossSell)

Update Backtest

If the condition "float(float(self.PortValSell) / float(self.Value_of_EURUSD)) < 1000:" is satisfied, the reason can be no sufficient buying power or the order was placed but not filled. You can see the warning message in the console if the buying power is insufficient. Please add OnOrderEvent() to check details 

def OnOrderEvent(self, orderEvent):
