    Interested in recomendations on IB compatable platforms. TraderWorkstation constantly locks up. I am looking for simple charting with order management. Opinions please....

    Are you sure you don't have any resource problems? For example, you might find another 512K of memory might do wonders.

    Thanks Def, I have 2 gigs of memory. Tech support said my internetconnectionis not fast enough because TW reports in so many times a second. I have fast DSL, so not sure how to solve it...

    Trayo .... What do you mean by locks up??? Does TWS just lose
    the conn. and just sits there or the pages freeze and you cant
    close TWS???

    What operating system?

    How old is the DSL modem?? one yr?? two yrs?? what??
    Ask your DSL connection provider to test your connection to
    see if you are dropping ATM packets.

    When the lockups happen can you go to other websites at
    normal speed??

    Are you starting TWS from the IB server or are you starting up
    with the standalone version.

    Which version??

    If you are using the basket trader and finding that TWS appears to freeze when you submit a bunch of orders, you may find that turning the "audit trail" off will speed things up considerably.

    THANKS MEDVED AND RCJ. SEEMS TO BE A CONSENSUS ON WHAT WORKS WITH IB. I'LL CHECK THEM OUT.

    IT'S A BIT UNNERVING TO HAVE TWS FREEZE IN THE MIDDLE OF A TRADE...
