TWS slowing up on fast moves

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by illiquid, Aug 1, 2006.

  1. Is it me or has TWS been choking up on data releases and fast moves lately? It gets to the point where the bid/ask hangs for 5-10 secs, and I need to shutdown and re-login. TWS has always been very smooth for me, just in the past few weeks.

    Edit: according to IB help, they are saying that it's something on my end that might be interfering with the incoming data processing, and to look for cpu performance spikes. They are not hearing of any complaints from others about this problem. Any suggestions? I am only running realtick and excel in the background besides tws.
  2. Haven't noticed freezing quotes, but havednoticed trades not showing up in TWS last price field, but showing in the t&s window from IB.

    You can see this only with a slow moving rarely traded stock.
