I've seen some bug fixes and issues open on github about this, but still keep getting flooded with these messages when using the AlphaStreamsBrokerageModel. The messages appear to have something to do with the way the model calculates margin. I can't tell if my algo is causing these, due to my insights and indicators, or if it's a bug.

Are others seeing these messages when backtesting?

What I notice more than anything is the order errors are occuring after hours in backtesting time. (18:30, 17:07, 17:51, etc.)

I really just want to use orders during the trading day (preferably right after market open).

We're getting a fix for this pushed Tim - it happens when your equity curve falls and there is not enough cash buffer to support additional trading.
