    Anyone else experience strange iisues with the taiwan futures last night? I trade on IB. Around 9:00 Chicago time the bid ask opened up to like 5 to 8 ticks (its usually 1 tick wide) . I also have huge gaps in my data this morning. Just wondering if anyone knows what was going on. It seemed like an exchange issue? jim

    I put 12-26 on the title. I meant 12-16. cant edit now
  3. I noticed the same issue trading STW on the SGX. The bid ask spread widened for a while then I think the exchange suspended trading for a bit.

    according to ib alerts, there was a problem with the exchange. then, when it came back up, they ran like a premarket (why you saw b/a reappear without trading).
