IB TWS is getting Ridiculously slow

    Every upgrade gets slower and slower... is becoming quite like MS Word... there's a lot of stuff there that you won't ever use....

    All I want is quickly enter my orders and feed my charting software...

    Anyone having the same problem :(
  2. No problems here.

    Check all of your processes with TASK Manager and see what the CPU loadings are like.

    Javaw.exe is taking 2-3% of my CPU and tws uses around 80MB of ram...

    but my point is... where is this thing going? I always liked TWS for its simplicity...
  4. I'm not having a problem either.

    Have you upgraded java lately?
  6. Does it make any difference in removing features you do not use in Global configuration?

    what do you mean by "slow" ?

    do you mean you click on buy, and it takes a second to show the price?

    do you mean you click on "T" and it takes a second to transmit?

    do you mean your charting software is drawing slower than the quote?

    do you mean the quote is late compared to your esignal screen?

    what do you mean by "slow" ?

    if your java.exe is using 2~3% of the CPU, what program is using the most?

    Can someone enter interactivebrokers.com???
    I use java tws, it's not available at all. so trading is not possible today.

    I am using
    TWS 964.6
    Java Version 1.5.0 (build 1.5.0_09-b03).
    It is working fine.
