    Anyone signed up?
    I am not getting any quotes, only scrolling news headlines.
    Am I doing something wrong or this is all we get ?
    Also, has any body figured out how to filter out SVAL news source?

    Any knowledgeable IB reps care to answer?

    I'm afraid you will have to call the helpdesk.

    I am afraid too:(
  5. It would be better if IB adds offering the real BridgeStation (the "Plan B" thing). It's a standalone program, Equis has it for $135, so it is probably not much more expensive

    Calling customer service has turned to be a futile attempt as I suspected

    IB sent me an email ...

    Dear BridgeChannel Subscriber:

    It has come to our attention that not everybody is
    receiving market data through BridgeChannel due to
    unforeseen market data issues with some of the exchanges.
    Currently all options data is enabled and NYSE data
    should be enabled for tomorrow. NASDAQ, Amex, CBOT,
    and Globex data will be enabled at the latest by the
    end of next week, and we will send you an email when
    everything is functioning.

    We apologize for any inconvenience.

    I checked it now
    Options data ISN'T enabled, just giving you the heads up

    I just tried it out and I must say it sucked. Large java program, lack of customization features, and minimal documentation. I really should have researched it before I signed up for a month.

    Fastest $100 I ever lost.

    I think if you cancel it during the month of February-you dont get charged
  9. With any luck, IB can integrate and work out some discount with MetaStock QuoteCenter.

    Anyone have a review of MetaStock QuoteCenter? The official review only has one response.
