  • Hello

    Question: how can I get value of actual limit of bt.Order.StopTrail (and bt.Order.Limit)?

    Goal: I want to plot actual limit of bt.Order.StopTrail (and bt.Order.Limit) - to see on the plot how it is changing during time.

    I open bracket orders:

    os=self.buy_bracket(stopexec=bt.Order.Limit, stopprice=stopprice1,
                        limitexec=bt.Order.StopTrail, limitargs=dict(trailpercent=trailpercent1))

    and to make plot I use observer:

    class obsSellSLTS(bt.Observer):
        lines = ('StopLoss', 'TrailStop')
        plotinfo = dict(plot=True, subplot=False)
        plotlines = dict(
        def next(self):
            if len( #checking if bracket order is set
                 if[1].created.pricelimit is not None:
                     self.lines.StopLoss[0] =[1].created.pricelimit
                 if[2].created.pricelimit is not None:
                     self.lines.TrailStop[0] =[2].created.pricelimit

    but looks like '[2].created.pricelimit' is not the right data
    So: which data should I use:[2].created.pclose,[2].created.plimit,[2].created.price,[2].created.pricelimit,

    or from 'executed'[2].executed.pclose,[2].executed.plimit,[2].executed.price,[2].executed.pricelimit,

    or in any other source?

    kind regards

    This order type has no limit price. The actual order price is tracking the price of the asset. It will actually execute as a Market order when the price is met. The constantly updated price is stored in order.created.price

    @silverbald I have the same issue,

    Since the development of the thread seems to indicate that the originally reported issue wasn't the actual issue, ...

    Would you care to let us know which issue are you facing?
