    I thought I had disabled/fixed most of IB's annoying bells, alerts and pop up messages but there is one I cannot find.

    Whenever I execute an order I get this annoying sound like a crowd of people whistling, clapping and cheering. Does anyone know where I can find this to shut it down?

    heh...it's IB, taking position against you on other side :D
    get especially loud,when you place large market order

    go to configure-> Misc->sound Manager->take your pick. or uncheck check box on left
  3. Yeah I always get sounds like a cash register or a slot machine jackpot when I trade with IB. I just ignore 'em...

    I was actually looking at that sound file menu last night. Who knows where it is in the IB menu maze.

    I sometimes use eSignal as a front-end and I think that sound is native to eSignal. I don't think that's the case for IB.

    Thanks guys, I'm also using an esignal fron end, the sound might be coming from that.
