    All charts, time and sales data fails to load for seemingly all markets (except forex).

    I reported it to IB staff and they confirmed the issue.

    IB's market data is not reliable from what I have seen so far.

    I checked the IB page too to see the current system status. The page epic fails too.

    Current System Status

    System status information currently not available.

    It works fine now. The system status was unavailable for a few hours today.

    It would be if you were long 10 crude contracts.

    Almost every post is a whinge about ib with nothing of value contributed. epic ... lol ... should go sit on a volcano to get a decent sense of epic.
  8. Has anybody ever seen any useful info on that IB system status screen? Every time I've had connection issues (my internet ok but IB has issues), the status screen is always Fat, dumb, and happy.
  9. I think that the issues have to be genuinely "epic" to reach that screen. I recall some a few years back but small group issues probably don't get there.

    IB status screen is of not much use. Still it's the first place you could look at when you experience problems to see whether it's your problems or IB's.
