Identifying a Stop Loss Hit

In the 'Identifying a Stop Loss Hit' Boot Camp lesson, the code snippet for Order Ticket tracking is:

# Place our order and return an order ticket
self.stopMarketTicket = self.StopMarketOrder("IBM", -300, ibmStockPrice * 0.9)
#  Log its OrderId
self.Debug(stopMarketTicket.OrderId) 


but 


self.Debug(stopMarketTicket.OrderId) should be 

self.Debug(self.stopMarketTicket.OrderId)

Hi Jason,

We're glad to hear your feedback on Boot Camp! 

Good call. Yes, to Debug a global variable in python we do need to add self to the variable. Many of the lesson examples are written with the intention that users will modify them a bit when coding in the exercise. If the variable was local the user would not need to add self. However, in this case, to make it more clear in the lesson, I changed the example code based on your comment. 

Thanks!
Sherry
