In the last 3 months... Of the many NYSE stock symbols that I follow and trade... At least 5 or 6 have been ** erroneously ** taken off the "tradeable" list... Making it impossible for me to trade a live, active stock on the NYSE. Each case has proven to be an error on IB's part... And the symbol was re-instated... But it always takes many days and many complaints, calls, and emails. Even though I make about 50,000 trades/year... Every time I call the Institutional Services Desk... I am treated like a 5 year old... And told that I don't know how to enter a stock symbol that I have traded 100s of times, etc. (I believe in IB parlance this is referred to as being "egalitarian".... Meaning you treat kids and professional traders exactly the same way.) No one has ever called me back on a stock symbol error... From the Institutional Services Desk. The email guys are better... and usually respond... But they have done nothing to re-instate this symbol... And have been totally confused and sent me erroneous information... Almost like they are competing with EBay Customer Service for last place. Here is a valid symbol that has not been available to trade through IB all week: http://www.nyse.com/about/listed/lcddata.html?ticker=AMHPR I have been a Thompson/ILX subscriber for 10 years... And it would ** unthinkable ** for an ILX symbol to be unavailable for more than a few minutes... Personally... in 10 years I have NEVER seen a symbol error on my ILX terminal... Versus an error rate as high as 0.5% at IB. Please just fix it. This one is not specifically important to me really... But I know that someday IB will erroneously take down a live symbol that will cost me $1000s. Thanks.
