Unbelievable that it's nearly 2011 and IB cares so little about its clients money (hey, it's not theirs, so fuck 'em) that it doesn't have backup systems in place so that redundancy makes this a non starter. Their system is so fucked up that even though everything but asian markets is available, you can't sign in to TWS. Of course, I'm long several contracts in the HSI for the lunch and short several in copper. The crack team updating the system status took 20 minutes to even figure out that all systems were NOT green. It is unbelievable that they just rely on a user agreement that absolves them of all responsibility, so they just don't care to make the investment to have a solid system. i guess too busy churning out more and more fucked up buggy versions of their shite TWS and forcing us to "upgrade" to them. Like several others I've seen here over the years, I am stuck with them because so few brokers offer the Hang Seng, and those that do have commissions that are too high for a trader. So I'm stuck. I just hope they get it resolved so I don't end up having to hold this position over the weekend due to their ineptitude.
