  1. I have an account with IB. If I am assigned 100 shares long on a put option that I wrote, I've been told that a messege will be confirm this in the Portfolio tab of the IB Trader Workstation screen. Does this messege come up during the pit session right after it happens or is it an end of day confirmation messege the way that the daily transaction email is. Thanks
  2. It's my understanding assignments happen overnight as the shares are cleared through OCC. So you'd wake up the next morning to find yourself assigned. Never been assigned though so I can't be 100% sure.
