Thanks: 32 given, 34 received

My understanding with regard to the IB event is that everything on the IB side (at least for live trading) crashed, so stops already placed by traders did not function. Would be interested if someone would confirm that this was the case. As mentioned, I was 'flat', probably 20 minutes or less before the event.
