Default EnterShortStop is failing

I do not understand why my EnterShortStop is failing: The code is:

Print("Setting the stop order at " + (Close[2] - ( 1 * TickSize)) );
Print("The current price is " + Close[0]);
Print("Currant ask is " + GetCurrentAsk());
Print("The time is " + Time[0]);
entryOrder = EnterShortStop(1, (Close[2] - ( 1 * TickSize)), "MyStrat");

When this code executes, the current prices is 2134.25, and the EnterStopOrder is 2132.75. So, the EnterStopOrder is 1.5 points under the current price when executed. The debugging output is:

Setting the stop order at 2132.75
The current price is 2134.25
Currant ask is 2134.5
The time is 9/20/2016 10:00:00 AM

However, when the price does drop to my order price, at 2132.75, I get the error:

Market Replay Connection. By stop or buy stop limit orders can't be place below the market, affected Order: BuyToCover 1 Stop @ 2128.75

I'm made a video capture of this at: https://youtu.be/oZizaamVo4k

Your help? Thanks,

Hello timmbbo,

Thank you for your note.

The code sample you provided calls method EnterShortStop, which would not give you an error about buy to cover. I would look through the script for any Close calls which are giving you that error.

Without the full code we're unable to test on our end.

If you'd like to upload the full code I can take a look and see if anything jumps out. Or if you'd prefer to email a copy, send to platformsupport[at]ninjatrader[dot]com with Attn: Alan P in the Subject line. Also within the email please include a link to this thread, and the files.

I look forward to your reply.
