I also experienced the outage on Friday. I was lucky to be flat as well (been taking cold meds and cant trust anything my brain tells me). It was frustrating because their status pages said all was well and I couldnt initiate a support chat to see if it was just a problem on my end. Had also checked here to see if there was a thread. Really opened my eyes to a class of risk I had been overlooking, even though I almost always attach a stop to the entry order or right after being filled.
