OrderTicket concept

I am a beginner and I am confused with the OrderTicket concept.

What is the difference between 

self.stopMarketTicket = self.StopMarketOrder("IBM", -300, ibmStockPrice * 0.9)

and 

self.StopMarketOrder("IBM", -300, ibmStockPrice * 0.9)

Are they same to stop the market order?

They are the same. Both of them will execute a Stop Market Order.

The first example allows you to have ticket order that you can use to track the market order or update the stop price, etc.

The second example does not give you the ticket order.

When you send a package at the post office, you can request certified tracking. Certified tracking is optional. The package will be sent whether or not you have certified tracking. However, with certified tracking you can track the progress of the package.
