Stop Market Order not updating

I am trying to apply what I learned in the Trailing Stop Loss bootcamp lesson but having an issue.

When I set UpdateFields with my new stoploss, it does not actually apply the new stop loss to the existing order; am I doing something wrong or is this because stop market orders aren't supported for Forex?

I apologize - I misread the documentation; a MarketOrder must be placed for a StopMarketOrder to attach to
