"Cannot value contract"

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by illiquid, Jun 30, 2006.

  1. Anyone having trouble with TWS in entering orders? Every order I send either says "Cannot value contract at this time" or shows some very strange numbers (limit order at 619.000000001). Never seen this before, and just started 30 minutes ago.

    I've got that on several trades I entered at the close.
  4. Is anyone having this problem with globex futures? Help desk has no clue what is going on.

    I deleted my post. Very strange. All posters showed times after 9 PM. I logged in to enter a reply about the times. When I posted the reply I saw all the times showed EDT times around 4 PM or so. I did a "back" function in my browser and found the original thread. Times were later in the evening. Must have something to do with the ET software.
