Boy am I glad I decided to be flat today (FOMC day)... Haven't been able to sign in to IB TWS for the past 20 minutes on either my mobile or desktop. System status is all green on their site. This has been a craptastic month - 20k disappearing from account one night, problems with bar data due to rollover and daylight savings times, and now system unavailability... I've been using them for around a year and it had been good, but might soon be time to start looking.

Just needed to vent...

Just choose a backup broker. No need to stress like this. CQG and TT have mobile, desktop and downloadable products.
