    don't think so. i run standalone TWS build 853.7(pretty old one) and did not make any updates over weekends

    This is SO ANNOYING. Another unwanted "feature" stuck into TWS.

    Most likely some programmer decided that since forex trades in 4 decimals, why not add it to stocks as well. I'm calling it in right now, and I suggest you do as well.

    Talked with IB and apparently Island went to 4 decimal places over the weekend. Extremely annoying.
     
  9. y, looks like it doesn't matter even if standalone is already built into your pc...it still updates to most of the latest features automatically.
    bah

    Maybe for their internal systems, but you can only trade in penny increments on island unless the stock is below $1.
