    Check and make sure you aren't in 'buy limit" territory. One easy way to avoid getting stop and limit orders confused is to right click on the chart and point to Trading. If you right click below the current price, your choices will New Order, Buy Limit, and Sell Stop. If you right-click above the current price, your choices will be New Order, Buy Stop, and Sell Limit.

    The other possibility is that your broker has some limit on how close to the current price a pending order can be or else how close to the entry price your SL or TP can be.
