    OK, got an order to cover a short on Globex from Friday. How the heck can I cancel that order ASAP?

    And, when does TWS come back OL? Globex?

    Thanks for any help.

    When GLOBEX is closed, no orders can be cancelled. You have to wait for GLOBEX to reopen. I see you use TWS (IB) As soon as you have access to their system.
    This comes from their website :

    System Hours & Status

    The IB system is available for use during the following hours:

    Monday - Friday 00:30 - 23:00 NYT
    Saturday Closed
    Sunday 12:00 - 23:00 NYT

    Hope this helps
