Paper trading - account is not authorized to trade

Hello, there.

I am getting this error message when I try the make orders API calls with my paper account.

“account is not authorized to trade”

Does anyone know what is causing this issue?

Thank you,


I am getting the same error message as of this morning and won’t clear. I have been successfully using the paper account for the last 2 weeks so I am not sure what changed. Please help!
