Interactive Brokers Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • JcCozzone IAMSPARTACUS (@JcCozzone) reported

    Mass interruption on @IBKR . Had to shut it down. Couldn't even screen watch b/c of charts blank screen loading for several minutes.

  • DataDuckUK Data Duck UK (@DataDuckUK) reported

    @IBKR Lots of problems on the site in the UK today. Very slow as usual, no orders at all (just filled) are listed under Orders & Trades. Reports gives a gigantic bell icon and nothing else. :(

  • SQPCapital SQP Capital (@SQPCapital) reported

    .@degiroeu keeping my money hostage because of a Euronext **** up on other accounts. Plus delayed customer service because of covid... (for months now). @ibkr is looking more and more attractive.

  • NoobInvestorVlg Investaraptor (@NoobInvestorVlg) reported

    @IBKR So basically target people that shouldn't be investing in the first place. If you can't afford a full share of something you probably have other financial issues your money could be going towards. Nothing against @IBKR specifically, they are all doing this. And its clear why.

  • HedgMe (@HedgMe) reported

    @IBKR I think you need to educate your support staff here is my support thread eric05196: selling long puts does not increase margin, it decreases it Javier V: No, it does not @IBKR you have a flaw in the mosiac trading platform. selling long puts & it is INCREASING my margin

  • AdlinLing Adlin Ling (@AdlinLing) reported

    @PaixTrader @IBKR It's like trading with the difficulty level turned up to 10x times harder compared to those with a CP account. Towards the end of every quarter when all the earnings have been out, the volatility in large caps die down and it gets really hard to make any money.

  • tim_noonan Tim Noonan (@tim_noonan) reported

    @danushman @IBKR That's a feature, not a bug. It saves new retail traders from making bad moves based off @willmeade8's tweets! ;)

  • danushman Dan Ushman (@danushman) reported

    Hey @IBKR your execution is amazing. That's why I trade with you. However, your software so BAD. Why does it take me 15 minutes to load an options chain? I know software. It does not have to be this way!

  • dilipcorrea Dilip David Correa (@dilipcorrea) reported

    @IBKR please call me. Unable to login. My contact number +968 99345940.

  • stkbullgod SBG (@stkbullgod) reported

    @MarkGutman9 @IBKR I need to see if there’s an update for my app. I literally never had this issue, and I’ve been a client for years.

  • stkbullgod SBG (@stkbullgod) reported

    @MarkGutman9 @IBKR Mobile. I’ve never had this issue. Now it’s almost a daily thing. I did login and log back out, it didn’t adjust.

  • stkbullgod SBG (@stkbullgod) reported

    @SymbolicBroker @IBKR the problem I have is that it used to be close…NOW? completely delayed and almost useless. The P&L never agrees with NAV etc….

  • TradeWithAdam Adam (@TradeWithAdam) reported

    @takingstock614 @IBKR Not having this issue. I'd try re-installing the IB client

  • MarkGutman9 Mark Gutman (@MarkGutman9) reported

    @stkbullgod @IBKR mobile or desktop? Never had that problem on desktop. Yes on mobile. Log out and back in always has fixed it

  • takingstock614 Takingstock614 (@takingstock614) reported

    Anyone having issues with IB brokers, I login and it just goes to a blank page. Nothing loads!!! Second day in a row now. @IBKR...

  • stkbullgod SBG (@stkbullgod) reported

    Wtf is wrong with @IBKR I login, and it says I’m down 200 basis points. I searched through all of my positions, and nothing has that kind of exposure. 30 minutes goes by, it finally updates. I’m down 30 basis points. Seriously – get it together

  • QuintanelaR Quintanela Richardson (@QuintanelaR) reported

    @IBKR 6 DAYS from deposit until funds available to trade? Good grief why?? Absolute worst in class. Glad I only tested a tiny deposit amount

  • bearlybull integrity (@bearlybull) reported

    @aisalnora @wstrade By the time it clears, you've missed your entry. Save yourself the hassle and stress from these damn false promises. Use @IBKR, I promise you won't regret it.

  • InvestorsLive Nathan Michaud (@InvestorsLive) reported

    First @IBKR now @etrade Because the market is currently pricing in heightened uncertainty, E*TRADE will be increasing our base margin maintenance requirement (house margin requirement) from 25% to 30%, beginning Monday, October 19, 2020.

  • JonahLupton Jonah Lupton 🇺🇸 (@JonahLupton) reported

    @cadeinvests @IBKR has decent customer support. Usually you can get someone within 5-10 minutes or they call you back.

  • diegolquilotte Diego (@diegolquilotte) reported

    @IBKR hello I can't contact the customer service and I need help with my account

  • Rural_Albertan Andy von Busse ⚛️𝌄 (@Rural_Albertan) reported

    @IBKR WTF does this wall of words even mean? Talk about wasting their money on advertising, and then spew garbage like this.

  • BathurstThinkt1 bathurstthinkt1 (@BathurstThinkt1) reported

    @IBKR @NerdWallet Are you down right now?

  • GinSecurities Gin Lane Securities (@GinSecurities) reported

    @USRoute41 @stkbullgod @IBKR i had a sudden new problem with my security ( Kapersky ) and $IBKR app . $IBKR app would not start up with Kapersky running disabled Kapersky and app came up fine ( FYI )

  • s_u_c_h_y stewart (@s_u_c_h_y) reported

    @Amine_Elmo @BMO At the very least they could respond as its impossible to get thru on their understaffed phone line #bmoinvestorline I also have an @IBKR account and have yet to have any issues. Maybe its time to move everything over. One more Diamond Star member gone

  • aka20p Aka20p (@aka20p) reported

    Suspended all @eToro activities today and focus only on @IBKR until #etoro stop snooping on my clipboard and fix their invasive strategy. I recommend everyone on iOS to be aware that eToro are stealing personal information. #security #snooping @yoniassia

  • sunshinejanezy monkeyslalaland (@sunshinejanezy) reported from Camden Town, England

    @IBKR @interactivebrokers server seems down and I’m having issues accessing both app and desktop. Also, the security string generated via IB key is not recognised by the laptop’s platform - I’ve tried it multiple times but got no luck so far. Can someone help me resolve this?

  • PoorQuantboi Poor Peasant (@PoorQuantboi) reported

    How long does one need to wait to get hold of a customer service representative @IBKR? Isn't waiting ~30 mins multiple times enough?

  • anilg876mtm Anilg876mtm (@anilg876mtm) reported

    @IBKR Hi .. I am trying to contact customer service ... I need urgent details about my account ... But dont remember my account name Is that possible to get help

  • anuj_mittal Anuj Mittal (@anuj_mittal) reported

    @IBKR has been 7 days since I transferred funds however my account has not been activated despite numerous calls & emails due to a "technical error". The stocks I wanted to invest in have gone up by 20%. World's best brokers with shitty technology and customer service?
