Oanda Order Execution Fails

Greetings!

I am just trying to learn QuantConnect. I have created a very basic algorithm and tried to deploy on Oanda demo account.

However I am unable to create any order. The order status for all the orders is "invalid"

I have personally checked the order details locally using Oanda API.

Here is a failed order transaction

{'transaction': {'type': 'ORDER_CANCEL',
  'orderID': '186',
  'reason': 'STOP_LOSS_ON_FILL_GUARANTEED_REQUIRED',
  'id': '187',
  'accountID': '#
  'userID' : #
  'batchID': '186',
  'requestID': '42519692668999648',
  'time': '2019-01-15T11:01:57.016281613Z'},
 'lastTransactionID': '187'}

 
Apparently, the order is failed because "Guranteed Stop Loss" is required.

Also via OANDA api, I used to set guranteed stop loss and take profit, together in one single order.

How can I rectify the error? Also, Is it possible to add stop loss and take profit together in one single order? Could you please share a code snippet for the same?

Many Thanks

Hi All,

Are you paper-trading on your Oanda Demo account locally in LEAN or in the IDE? I've run the code you provided with my own DEMO account and wasn't able to replicate the error, so any specific information you can provide about deploying the algorithm will be helpful. As far as combining orders, you can place a stop loss and calculate a take-profit order, but we don't support take-profit as an individual order type (you can calculate the profit-target price of the security and place a stop-market or stop-limit order to mimic the behavior). You can see more information and examples from the community here.
