IB's wonky stock quotes.

    Is anyone else getting really out of whack stock quotes lately with IB?? By out of whack I mean Bid is higher than the Ask sometimes substantially while the "last" is even lower or higher than the Bid or Ask. This started happening on fast moving stocks, almost like the quotes couldn't keep up with the price movement. Lately it has been happening with even slower moving stocks. It has got to the point where I can only submit Market orders based on the "Last" sale price. I cannot submit Limit orders because I have no clue what the real Bid/Ask numbers are. I have submitted help tickets on this and have not received any replies. Fantastic customer service.:mad:

    I just went back a little further in the posts and noticed that others are having the same problem. It's a little comforting (only a little) to know that it is not just an isolated problem that only I am having but I sure hope IB starts getting their act together to fix these ongoing issues.
