    Has anyone had problems with IB this morning? I switched to their simulated account a couple of weeks ago to try some new techniques, and all of my orders have been hanging this morning. I haven't had a problem like this with the real TWS for years. Is it just the simulated account or me?

    I had the same problem with simulated trading. Has anybody had the problem with REAL trading? That would be worrisome.

    happens often on sim. account, regardless to market conditions.
    no problem today on real one
  5. Yes, there are/were problems. Orders took (still take?) anywhere from 2 to over 30 seconds to to get confirmed by an exchange.

    Phoned IB about the problem, they promised to call me back. Still waiting...
  6. No problems today. Made several dozen trades (stocks), smooth as ever.

    yes we have had issues with the simulator and tws
    we are presently down now and have been very slow all morning with being frozen just after open for approx 5 mins.

    IB is slow on taking orders and executing today.
    we have also had several part fills when the exit price is at the bid /ask
