  1. Anzone else having problems with oec? Charts freeze up every 5 seconds or so.

    Im now starting to get pissed.
  2. Hi Dexscalper,

    See my post today about OEC demo giving me market fills on limit orders.

    The freezing -- yes. I was trading live yesterday and both the chart and the DOM frooze for a second. It was so brief (1 second) that I would have thought the market was neutral except for that I had been reading here about OEC freezes.

    I am new to futures, and I love it (thanks ET folks for leading me here). I have accounts with both IB and OEC, and I tend to use OEC because it looks more user friendly, but the freezes are not acceptable, and if I ever get a market fill on a limit order when live, I could quickly lose cash.

    So I'm really going tohave to move away from OEC, even thought I love their customer service.

    What other brokers would you consider?

    Don't have the DOM open on either of the markets I follow....

    Oddly no, I hav'nt had my charts noticeably freeze (meaning if they did I did'nt notice it)....

    maybe because i was watching my primary trading platform
