Having the same issue.

Try checking the account configuration to see if you have it off by default, its a bit hard to find if you don’t know where to look.

Also if you don’t want to short, but you’re getting this error, you’re probably sending a sell order for more quantity than you own. Maybe a sell order is being sent before the buy order.

Hi, did you manage to resolve the issue?

still have the same issue
any idea what to do ?


What is going on?.

Same Here Just got my paper account and I am not able to sell short or add any stop limits?

It eventually worked for me.

Make sure of 2 things:

  • money has cleared

  • meets the minimum requirement
