    Entered the the office a few minutes ago and no way to open TWS from any computer, mobiletws and webtrader worked though.

    what the heck are you talking about? You could have sold or bought every single tick all the way down and all the way up. Whether we talk s&p futures, currencies, any other futures contracts for that matter. Liquidity was there on both sides. Stop wining. You are just pissed off because you missed the move or did not have the balls to join. Move on but stop blaming the wrong people here.

  10. Crap I missed this. I should have had a sitting order.
