$headers = array(
'Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8',
'Accept: application/json; charset=UTF-8',
'Version: 2',
'X-IG-API-KEY: '.$xapikey,
'CST: ' .$_SESSION['api_cst'],
'X-SECURITY-TOKEN: '.$_SESSION['api_xtoken']
);


$data = array("stopLevel" => "9300", "limitLevel" =>  null, "trailingStop" => " false", "trailingStopDistance" =>  null, "trailingStopIncrement" =>  null);
$data_string = json_encode($data);


$id="DIAAAAKF225EXAL";
$ch = curl_init('https://demo-api.ig.com/gateway/deal/positions/otc/?' . $id . '');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS,$data_string);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);

$result = curl_exec($ch);
print"$result";

above is my code, I get:

{"errorCode":"invalid.request.trailingStopDistance"}

However using the exact same header output and json output it works in the REST API.

why the errror?
