    Is anyone else having trouble creating spread combos (calendar or diagonal in my case) in OptionsTrader today?

    When I create one, I don't get bid/ask/size -- with either the latest TWS or the latest TWS Beta.

    And if I click on the ask to place an order, it opens the full order ticket instead of immediately creating an order line.

    I got an answer from CS:

    """
    Intermarket combo's have been suspended due to market volatility and slowing quotes resulting in an unacceptable number of failed legs. No details are available regarding how long this will be in effect. Traders may see question marks or no quote data for spreads where we normally display an implied quote. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.
