    Question for other Tradestation users.

    How did your system handle the big 240,000 volume spike on the ES at 3:55 PM EST (5 minute candle) that happened today.

    My charts basically froze for 20 seconds (the program didn't freeze). I thought "Oh, the market closed early?" but then I looked at my IB that was up at the same time and on the same computer and no problem. When TS charts started again there was a big hole there until it refreshed 10 minutes or so later on.

    Anyone else have any problems? Trying to figure out if it was a computer or tradestation issue.

    Computer is a Dell Precision T3400 C2D 3 ghz with 2 Gig of ram. Nothing running but TS, IB and Button trader. No problems previously.
