10035 TRADE_RETCODE_INVALID_ORDER Incorrect or prohibited order type

10038 TRADE_RETCODE_INVALID_CLOSE_VOLUME A close volume exceeds the current position volume
10039 TRADE_RETCODE_CLOSE_ORDER_EXIST A close order already exists for a specified position. This may happen when working in the hedging system:
  • when attempting to close a position with an opposite one, while close orders for the position already exist
  • when attempting to fully or partially close a position if the total volume of the already present close orders and the newly placed one exceeds the current position volume
10040 TRADE_RETCODE_LIMIT_POSITIONS The number of open positions simultaneously present on an account can be limited by the server settings. After a limit is reached, the server returns the TRADE_RETCODE_LIMIT_POSITIONS error when attempting to place an order. The limitation operates differently depending on the position accounting type:
  • Netting — number of open positions is considered. When a limit is reached, the platform does not let placing new orders whose execution may increase the number of open positions. In fact, the platform allows placing orders only for the symbols that already have open positions. The current pending orders are not considered since their execution may lead to changes in the current positions but it cannot increase their number.
  • Hedging — pending orders are considered together with open positions, since a pending order activation always leads to opening a new position. When a limit is reached, the platform does not allow placing both new market orders for opening positions and pending orders.
10041 TRADE_RETCODE_REJECT_CANCEL The pending order activation request is rejected, the order is canceled
10042 TRADE_RETCODE_LONG_ONLY The request is rejected, because the "Only long positions are allowed" rule is set for the symbol (POSITION_TYPE_BUY)
10043 TRADE_RETCODE_SHORT_ONLY The request is rejected, because the "Only short positions are allowed" rule is set for the symbol (POSITION_TYPE_SELL)
10044 TRADE_RETCODE_CLOSE_ONLY The request is rejected, because the "Only position closing is allowed" rule is set for the symbol
10045 TRADE_RETCODE_FIFO_CLOSE The request is rejected, because "Position closing is allowed only by FIFO rule" flag is set for the trading account (ACCOUNT_FIFO_CLOSE=true)
