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.

Stops live on the exchange, so they would still function if already submitted. I agree with other posters as far as preparedess, have their phone number handy. Even if platforms do go down, there are still people who submit orders the old school way over the phone.
