I use the downloaded IB Trade Station 4.0. My ISP is Earthlink 5.0. At 11:10am on 7/24/01 I entered a buy order for 100 shares of a NYSE stock. By 11:29am the order had not been executed. It was still blue. So I canceled it. By 11:45am the cancel had not been executed so I left the computer. When I came back an hour later the cancel had been executed. This was to have been my first trade. Question: Is this normal? Does IB take hours to execute an order?
