I closed my IB account

  1. After trying for 4 solid hours today to open my TWS, I closed my IB account. The management dude said that IB really wasn't for me anyway because it was for professional traders. Traders my ass. What has that got to do with programming glitches and overworked technical support that won't stick with you more than a couple of minutes when they screw you up by changing the system over and over ad nauseam.

    I use the browser based TWS when I have problems with the standalone. Try deleting the log files in jts or ibjts subdirectories.
  3. Thanks Just 21. Too late for that. Looking elsewhere.
  4. They insult you on the way out....nice.
  5. Your making a mistake, I have tried every broker out their, IB is the best, the offer so much for so little. They truly are the best discount broker. I like you have closed my account before, sort of an emotional thing, then I would always come back.
  6. Can't go back because I can't open my tws.
  7. You must have a screwed-up computer. I've logged on, at least 2000 times and never any problem.


  8. What operating system are you running?
  9. windows 98

  10. Humm that could be your problem, can you open the browser based TWS platform?
