IB - no bid for combo order

    I often see no bid price when I open a combo order, specially with butterflies. If I go over to the optionsXpress site and I can see both bid and ask prices for the same fly.

    For example, this is WLP 70/75/80 July call fly. In IB today, I got no bid, and ask was $2.85. The market is now closed, so I cannot see IB quote now.

    But in optionsXpress, it shows $2.50/$2.85.

    Any reason why?

    No one using IB has encountered this situation?
