Orders are showing PENDING CANCEL

Problem

Summary
I had an open position over the weekend tried to terminate it and it wouldn’t terminate, so I clicked cancel the transaction instead it went to pending cancel any other order I place now is pending cancel.

Paper or Live Tradng?

I am having the same issue, with pending cancels that are blocking all action on my paper trading account.

My issue has been resolved by itself eventually.

Same here after I made the posting it was resolved but if it happens live that would be scary…

I had similar problem today with my paper account. My market buys were = accepted but never filled and sell orders were set to new. never filled.
They were not cancelled either.
Does anyone know if Paper APIs would work like that in the future?

This is happening in prod, I’ve placed an order it got Accepted, then I cancelled it and now its pending cancel…

Earlier today the prices in the portfolio was not updating either…

Its being wonky all day! its doubling up stop losses can’t cancel. live trading. Nothing i can do now but to wait till all my orders get canceled and see the ultimate loss. boo

My guess is we’re having these issues because of using the order_type / type market , see below:
object(stdClass)#117 (28) {
[“id”] => string(36) “”
[“client_order_id”] => string(36) “”
[“created_at”] => string(27) “2020-02-19T17:04:09.220766Z

[“order_class”] => string(0) “”
[“order_type”] => string(6) "market"
** [“type”] => string(6) “market”**

[“limit_price”] => NULL
[“stop_price”] => NULL
[“status”] => string(6) “filled”
[“extended_hours”] => bool(false)
[“legs”] => NULL
}

I dumped the same order earlier at 12:12 my time:
array(1) {
[0] => object(stdClass)#50 (28) {
[“id”] => string(36) “”
[“client_order_id”] => string(36) “”

Looks like they’re not updating the orders in time, cuz it got filled and then something happens in Alpaca and the order is not updated this is an issue…

I have same problem.
“Pending Cancel”

Having the same problem here with some market orders in my paper account

Same problem occurred for me on paper account. It influences buying power.

I’m getting this today/yesterday in Paper, it’s blocking my exit on an AMD position. So fare I have got no support from mods on the forums… Is there anywhere for direct support from Alpaca??

this is also happening to me again today within a week (in paper trading) … hopes this doesn’t happen in live, support said to me they are working on fixing it…but unsure about details and status

Literally starting trading my first day (with paper account) and can’t exit a position (losing money too) because its stuck on pending cancel. I hope this doesn’t happen live.

If this continues, I’ll try other API based brokerages :frowning_face:

I hope support/developers can fix this!

It actually doesn’t happen in my live account

Thanks for letting me know!
However, I saw it happened to AgentX

It actually doesn’t happen in my live account

I’d love to get some official position on this from an Alpaca representative. It’s one of my biggest concerns with going live.

My orders IN LIVE are NOT canceling. They show PENDING_CANCEL… then they get filled. This is a huge concern. Anyone else?
