Market orders with stops and limits

Market orders to open with stops and limits don't work at all for me (grrrr). I dont think its my error but not impossible , but they don't work from the API companion either.

My work around is to place a market order then immediately update the stop and limit. This works most of the time but occasionally my stop/limit edit is rejected with the error :

"Rejected: Unable to process, contingent order in progress."

I am presuming this is maybe because I add the stop loss too quickly after placing the Market order and the back end is calculating if I have enough funds or something.

So I have added a 15 second delay and I have not seen the same error again - We'll see
