    Anyone having trouble logging into TWS tonight (Tuesday, 10:40 central)? I've tried and it tells me my login id is wrong.

    I just started using the token on Monday and it's been fine until tonight. Any input out there?

    TIA

    i've had this happen a couple of times. my guess is that the code sequence goes awry and it's either looking at the previous or next code generated. what i did was make sure i had entered the last code, then shut down TWS, rebooted my computer (prolly not necessary) and then tried again- each time that has worked.

    makes me nervous though, if their system gets a ghost in the machine, and nobody can lon in using their token, then it will be chaos. scary thought and yet another reason to have a backup broker- easier said than done when you trade the HSI/HHI.HK...
