    My data froze for a couple minutes at 11:50am est. Anybody else? Today would not be a good day for data issues.

    yes we are frozen here also and have been for several minutes.

    several of the computers have come back on for a few seconds then disconnected again.

    we are still presently down but some of the remote traders are up so I am guessing it is the server again.

    same ol, market must be getting ready to drop or pop.

    EVERY platform has issues today!

    Some more than others, TradeStation is about as accurate as a LEAPFROG today, Ninja is holding up, and CQQ got sticky once.

    yes had the same problem...
  7. yep, a few minutes ago. I learned awhile back to have a backup broker and I have not regretted that decision ever since. You should expect outages but it is really not good on a day like today. IB has been much less reliable this year than I can ever remember that's for sure. :mad:

    edit: back now at 12:06pm
  8. IB's system status page says no problems. So why do I have problems?
