    Hi All

    Can someone pls tell me when I can actually log into my live account on the weekends. I thought I could log in any time before 12pm (noon) Sat and Sun, but so far I cannot do this.

    I am in Brisbane, Australia.

    thanks for the link. So is that 1200 as in midnight Sunday NY time that the server will be up ?

  3. No, it's 12 in the afternoon. Like 5-6 hours before the Forex Open's. Yes, it's all NYC time.

    It is ridiculous that IB doesn't allow us to log in on weekends in this high technology era that we live in. Even if they want to work on their servers on the weekend, haven't they ever heard of swappable servers?

    They are many times when I need to make changes or set up positions to TWS on the weekend and cannot. Please consider changing this IB. Thanks.
