Problem with IB's TWS

    Anyone else have orders for DJX options on the TWS that takes so long to actually see your bid/offer get posted on the screens? I tried to lift an offer that apparently I missed and then my bid didn't show up for at least 12 minutes later. Nevertheless, I missed the trade and now I hang out to dry with an open position over the weekend. I thought direct access meant instantaneous fills. I find that when I either put in a bid/offer or just try to lift a bid/offer, the orders takes sometimes more than 5 minutes to do anything. Far from instant. This is just for options trading, not outright stocks. Anyone else?

    The only market maker for DJX is CBOE, so thats where your problem is. IB merely routes your order to the appropriate market maker. Its the option exchange thats holding up your order.
