    My market data page just started showing some new columns this morning that don't show up in the default config. The columns relate to orders. Had my screen laid out the way I wanted it and this screws it up. What's going on IB?
  2. I am not getting futures data at all
  3. correction US fut. data, ESTX50 and DAX are on.

    Market Data
    Some traders may experience intermittent issues with market data.
    Please logout and back in and this issue should be resolved.

    From IB
  5. BTW this is the first time in 6-7 years I have experienced TWS down. I hope it won't happen again for years. I have positions I would like to undo. My back up is TS but I don't keep much funds there so there is only limited hedging I can do.:mad:

    I logged out and back in and it didn't do anything about my extra columns that showed up and I don't know how to get rid of.
  7. I have reloaded and it solved the problem. I use the stand alone version.
  8. I had the "no futures data problem" when I 1st launched this morning. I restored my settings to Thursdays settings and all was well. Oddly and Thankfully, my charting package was picking up the RT data accurately even though TWS wasn't showing quotes.

    I have found that doing a setting restore is like resetting TWS instead of doing a quit and relaunch.
