IB Quotes for ZB Froze During and After FED Annoucement

Discussion in 'Interactive Brokers' started by wavetrader, May 4, 2004.

  1. What the heck happened with IB when the FED announced?

    There were no quotes whatsoever for ZB for a period of 5minutes!! My charting program was moving so there were trades going through, but there were none on TWS.

    IB, this is unacceptable!!!

    What is going on???
  2. Still no quotes, and it's now 11:24am PST, 9minutes after FED announcement.

  4. It´s the usual ECBOT special effect ...

    This has happened TOO many times during fast markets, with no IB remedy.

    If it happens again, I'm gone to Trade Station.

    Case closed.

    We were up and running. Anyone who wants a free 30 day trial of our platform and FCM we will not charge you the $400 minimum for the first month. We will just give you the regular .55 clearing fees. We do have a demo that you can try.

    I know this is a cheap place to plug but I had to do it.

  8. was rock solid as usual and didn't miss a beat!

  9. TradeStation kicking butt lately - Version 8 is extremely solid. Plus, the software doesn't look like it's been written by kindergarteners.
