IB Error - No new positions

    Does anyone know what the deal is with this error? (See attachment.)

    "Not allowed to open new positions at the moment because account valuation may be incorrect."

    This is a demo account (of course) and as anyone can clearly see, my open positions certainly aren't pushing the limits of the 50:1 margin. Yet, TWS is refusing to place orders. And even worse, sometimes it won't even let you exit a position reporting the same error.

    Why? Is this what can be expected with a live account? Or is this a demo fluke?

    Don't know about this -- but have never seen it in my (non-demo) account.
