@ProtoHeartbeatEvent: 22 Sep 2022, 16:21
The server does not send any confirmations for heartbeats. If the connection is not dropped and you keep receiving heartbeats from the server, then it means tou are doing it right.
Since the sample https://github.com/spotware/OpenApiPy/tree/main/samples/ConsoleSample does not send a ProtoHeartbeatEvent, do we really need to do it (server keeps sending a heartbeat every 30 sec)? How long until the server drops the connection, if we don't send a ProtoHeartbeatEvent?

Since I can't find anything in the samples, and there's no confirmation back from the server when I send a ProtoHeartbeatEvent, I don't know if I'm doing it right.
I would greatly appreciate an input from the developers or someone that has a working example, how it's supposed to be done.

I have no idea what is that about and what it is doing :)
Ok. So what would be the best way to keep the connection alive by sending a ProtoHeartbeatEvent in 10 second intervals?
Forgot to say that I'm using OpenApiPy.

Yes server sends heartbeats every 30 seconds.
So the " task.LoopingCall " I added is correct?

Point 6 in https://help.ctrader.com/open-api/connection/ "To keep your connections alive, keep sending a ProtoHeartbeatEvent in 10 seconds interval."
In " connected() " I added a twisted.task.LoopingCall
hb = task.LoopingCall(ProtoHeartbeatEvent)
I still only get a ProtoHeartbeatEvent back from the server every 30 seconds though. Is this the correct way to do it?
@How to setup stop loss when opening a Market order: 16 Sep 2022, 21:42
For Marker Orders you need to set the relativeStopLoss. stopPrice is not supported for Market orders.
Okay again thx for pointing me this out. But unfortunately it is not the solution.
I have try the below values, it accept the order, but the SL has not been set.
request.relativeStopLoss = 1000
request.trailingStopLoss = True
Below the output in json format. There you see also the relativeStopLoss has been set, but it is not activated:
Below you can see the SL and TSL are not activated.
What els do I have to send to enable the SL?
If you want a 10 point SL, set relativeStopLoss to 10 * 100000
