Can you trade ABGX and IMDC w/ IB RIGHT NOW?

    These 2 stocks were halted today, and now both have resumed trading. My TWS has the red line through the rows, and I can't trade them. This has been happening quite frequently lately. My dad has an account, and I logged in using his id, and there is no red line through the row.

    I'm not trying to trade these right now, but I'd like to think that I would have the opportunity to trade a stock that's been halted. Am I the only one who can't trade these? Anyone else get the 'red line of death'?

    I'd appreciate anyone who could give me a quick response, since the red lines may be gone at some point.

    This is a recurring problem with IB. I suggest you call them up and complain. I've already done so but they don't seem to be listening. perhaps more people will change their mind

    I see it trading but I still have a red line and can't execute a trade, hoping it goes away on open.

    OK thanks guys. Apparetnly it's not just my account. That's strange that my dad's TWS didn't have the red line when mine did. I had his running on a different computer; I don't know if that makes any difference.

    OK, how about CVTX and SCTC right now? Do these have a red line through them? Both have been released for trading.
