First Trade, can't close and take profit

Hello, I am starting out and have tried to do my first trade.  I bought 2 units - the limit based on the 10,000 simulated fund.  I try to sell my 2 units at current market price when I see the gain puts me in the positive. NZD/CHF and purchased at .65744  there are times it is .65766 and I click to sell but it keeps telling me there is an error due to the limit.  So, what's next?

Thanks ORock! That did the trick, I closed out the order, went in to sell, and to my advantage it had gone up overnight, made a profit of about 2.6% for my first trade.

I am a bit confused though because videos I have seen such as the one you sent me to watch show multiple orders on the list. Perhaps it allows more when they are not market orders?

Again, I appreciate your help.

David click on word Beeline ( in blue) on top , that is your guide.

it keeps track of your progress and tells you what is your next task to be completed.

Ok, Thanks again, I seen the Beeline in blue as you state, it does eventually catch up and show me the next step. I just took the quiz at the end of Cooper2 and I got 15 of 19 or 79%. I reviewed what was right and wrong but am a bit concerned about the one question. It stated that a PIP was 10 points. True or False. I said False, I understood a PIP to be 1 point. Either way, I passed on the first round.
