How can I get the fill price of the last order that was made?

I want to get the last order's fill price and compare it to the current price of the equity.

Hey Benjamin,

We can use the OnOrderEvent(self, orderevent) method, which fires each time an order is partially filled, filled, cancelled, etc. The orderevent object which is passed as a parameter contains information about the order which has been updated.Using the orderevent object, we can access properties of the order like

symbol = orderevent.Symbol # The symbol of the security the order is associated with
status = orderevent.Status # Whether the order has been filled, partially filled, cancelled, submitted, etc
fill_price = orderevent.FillPrice # The fill price of the order
fill_quantity = orderevent.FillQuantity # The fill quantity of the order

Knowing the symbol of the order, we can find the latest price of the corresponding symbol using

price = self.Securities[symbol].Price

So putting it all together,

def OnOrderEvent(self, orderevent):
# check if orderevent is a fill
if orderevent.Status == OrderStatus.Filled:
symbol = orderevent.Symbol
fill_price = orderevent.FillPrice
current_price = self.Securities[symbol].Price

Learn more in the documentation on trading and orders. I also recommend completing the Buy & Hold with a Trailing Stop Bootcamp, which covers the OnOrderEvent method.
