    Globex down, and I am unable to close a GC position - contacted IB, they are unable to send orders to Globex as well.

    Going to be a very profitable or very unprofitable day.
     
  3. Switch to CTS T4 using a reputable clearing FCM.

    IB is mickey mouse shit for futures trading.

    Sorry you guys can't close a position.

    Wasn't looking for an attack thread ChiCTA, just asking a question. I do appreciate your point, but wasn't the intent of the thread. I have been an Advantage Futures trader in the past, and took time off, and volume wise am just getting back to it. Since my time back IB has been very good, and this is 5 months now, but today, yea, extremely irritating.

    I was just now able to get out @ Market +3 pts, could have gone very badly...

    I will add since you brought it up, I demo'ed the CTS product and found it to be, well, let's say crap. I traded TT before my break, and have found IB's platform ok.
