    I had FV orders stuck in my DOM, wouldn't cancel. Supposedly they never made it to the exchange which is where the problem resides.

    Where did that message come from in your op? Is there an email list I can subscribe to? Wouldn't it be nice to know before I start entering orders?

    Same here... I restarted my platform and retried to place orders since I didn't understand what was happening. Now I have 2 orders stuck for 3 X my usual size...
  5. You can check this page for updates:

    It's usually delayed though; CME will only send out emails to registered brokers since we're just a bunch of ig'nunt peons.

    If anyone knows how to get auto-forwarded GCC emails it would be a big help!

    erlewine, thank you very much for that link.

    This message should provide a little bit of comfort: (since my broker did not tell me this)

  7. I was lucky to delete my last orders at 8:45 EST... I saw that news on a DJ and Reuters newsfeeds. My TT did not recognized the CBOT exchange shutdown...and effectively is just a partial failure.

    - Anyone knows how to get information about the CME Globex status for non-members aside calling 312-456.2391 (GCC -Globex Control Center)?

    Thanks Erlewine,

    Do they cancel any orders that has been entered during the outage.How do they proceed?

    OK just saw Jaxon message.
  10. IB finally sent a bulletin almost 2 hours late!

    Cash bonds are mostly unchanged, if anyone needs to hedge over the holiday there's TLT although you'll have to figure out the ratio for yourself.
