Adding stop loss to open position

Hi Guys,

Am newbie to Alpaca, yesterday I put my first trades via Tradingview trade panel, my stop loss positions have been cancelled overnight.

Please advise how to reinstate the stop loss to an open position. Note this is a paper trading account. your input will be much appreciated guys thanks.


Guys I found my mistake, I had not tweaked the * all the time-in-force from Day to GTC so now am I have resolved this should be interesting to see how the paper trading progress.

I hope your trading goes well. Can you explain what does it mean Good Till Canceled? I’m not so new to Alpaca (I’m trading on paper account too by the way) but I didn’t really understand GTC time in force. It means that I CAN change my Stop Loss/ Take Profit in open pwhenever I want?
