What does this error mean? The value entered is either too far away from the market price or contains an invalid character.

The error “The value entered is either too far away from the market price or contains an invalid character” means your strategy tried to place an Entry Order with an invalid price, i.e. probably inside or on the wrong side of the market. Entry Orders must be placed on the correct side of the price depending on their Stop/Limit Entry order type, and cannot be placed at the current price.

The most typical cause for this error is when the propose entry price is too close to the market and the market moved/slipped in the instant the order was placed causing the proposed entry price to become invalid.
