    Suspension of Real Time Option Exercise

    TWS functionality which provides real time exercise of US security options has been removed for the foreseeable future. All exercise notices submitted via the TWS will be processed as of the close of the trading session.

    Traders may notice that a long position can be exercised more than once in the TWS. Please note that exercise requests will be relayed to the OCC based on exercise requests received per account and will not exceed the long quantity of the account position.
