Interactive Broker - Market orders sitting on pending page?!

  1. WTH? Anyone else haveing issues with IB? Everything was fine for awhile this morning, then every order I submitted, even market orders on highly liquid stock, sat on the pending page UNFILLED!!! Unfilled? How does a market order go unfilled?

    I called IB and they said they have no idea?! They have records of me placing the orders, but don't know why they weren't being executed at the exchange. Unreal! I've missed out on PILES of money today. ARGH! :( :( :( :( :mad: :mad:
  2. An IB representative told me that IB routed traders' orders directly to the market, he also said that Scottrade routed traders' orders to exchanges that pay Scottrade. But I didn't know IB didn't route market orders at all. :confused: :confused: :confused:
