Trading in my IRA accounts was re-enabled Friday afternoon and remains available. I suspected they were back peddling. That they'd allow it for some time, provide a proper announcement, and disable it again sometime soon. That way they don't upset anyone who hadn't noticed yet. I haven't been executing in them though, never know when your orders are going to go dead again.

No such luck here. No permission. I also heard that Advisor accounts are still able to trade futures in clients' IRA. So, a real murky and uncertain situation and still no formal announcement of any kind that I know of.
