    Wayward quotes resulted in stop-market order and market orders not working -- costed me a few unncessary ES points.


    My faults after all, shouldn't have relied on ready-made functions in a problematic day concerning the servers.

    Scares me, too. It's not great if their computer goes down but what really is not acceptabel is that I have been on the phone for about 20 minutes and could get not one just to close my position - if the stops wouldn't work ... :eek:

    Really don't know what to do ?

    Does anybody using another Broker has ever experienced such problems ?

  6. i was short JNPR this am when IB went down.. had a stop at 20.96.. when the system came back up i looked and my stop didnt get filled until 21.30.. i guess their main quote system must have gone down..

    i am not able to log into the system again now.. i had 2 positions, short INTC and Short IMNX that i closed out by phone for a small gain only to watch them continue to fall after my exit.. but.. better safe than sorry.. technology..

    Today is a good reason to have a backup broker.

    I've been with IB for over six months and this is the first time I've had any problems. It's part of the risk of trading electronically.
