Permission Denied when making a trade

The Permission Denied error on trades generally means you have Two-factor Authentication (2FA) for Trading turned on and are entering it incorrectly or not at all. 

Depending on how you set it up, Trading 2FA can apply to:

  • Creating new orders
  • Cancelling open orders
  • Closing margin positions

If you are confident you are entering the correct 2FA code, see My Authenticator App 2FA code doesn't work for more details.
