How to see what price MarketOrder was made for and then make a Stop-Loss Order?

self.MarketOrder("AAPL", 1000) # Make an order here
self.StopMarketOrder("AAPL", -1 * shares, price) # I cannot find any documentation over this


How do I get the number of shares I currently have? So the variable shares should be 1000

How do I get the price the MarketOrder was made for? So then I can variable price to be the price of the order - 0.60

Hi Jordan, you can get the current holdings with self.Portfolio[symbol].Quantity. It includes all current holdings for this symbol. If you want to get the order quantity, you can save the order ticket.

ticket = MarketOrder("AAPL", 1000)
# Gets the number of units ordered
# Gets the total qantity filled for this ticket
# Gets the average fill price for this ticket
# If no fills have been processed then this will return a value of zero

For multiple orders, you can save all tickets in a list and use the index to retrieve the ticket.


Thanks, this helps a lot
