  • HedgedBook Hedged Book (@HedgedBook) reported

    *Noticed that it shows a slightly different % for my worst day, which was Jan 7, 2022 compared to the first week's tweet. I am using @IBKR and I feel it has to do with the fact that I took a screenshot at around 5-6 pm, and there was some trading in the after hours until 8 pm.

  • whitebreadfox Whitebreadfox (@whitebreadfox) reported

    @IBKR Daily reminder to fix the crappy TWS

  • averygrrl Avery 🌸💝📈📊💹✊🌹 (@averygrrl) reported

    @hyperconvexity @IBKR Yeah... I've had it fail to text me too. I had some issue with it where I had to call them and get them to disable my face ID or something like that. Turns out I had an incomplete application from a long time ago that I used face ID with, and it was locked to that. Weird.

  • RichAndFineMan RichAndFineMan (@RichAndFineMan) reported

    @IBKR what's wrong today? Not receiving security code to log in to TWS. I am losing money. Wtf! #ibkr ibkr

  • RichAndFineMan RichAndFineMan (@RichAndFineMan) reported

    @IBKR what's wrong today? Not receiving security code to log in to TWS. I am losing money. Wtf!

  • knutolee knutolee (@knutolee) reported

    available shorts @Fidelity and @IBKR, but the borrow fee remains incredibly low (between 0.6 and 0.8%). Conclusio: I fail to understand this market movement (bear in mind, I'm an idiot) and I'd greatly appreciate a plausible explanation for all of this. Could you help? 👉👈😳

  • Orangutrader1 Orangutard (@Orangutrader1) reported

    @Jesper44457672 @IBKR There is a glitch and no IPOs in the pipeline appear to be in TWS right now, I'm going to restart TWS after it starts trading, then try to enter it in and trade it if it is hopefully in there

  • Jesper44457672 Jesper (@Jesper44457672) reported

    @Orangutrader1 @IBKR The thing is that they know it perfectly well but keep abusing their clients with their non existing support and outdated platform.

  • Orangutrader1 Orangutard (@Orangutrader1) reported

    Time for my semi annual **** @IBKR tweet. You pay enormous commissions, pretty sure I paid nearly 50k last year, and they still **** you. Looks like we will be unable to trade the IPO $TPG today due to some incompetent glitch on there end. Might be time to finally leave them.

  • gauravbansal74 Gaurav Kumar (@gauravbansal74) reported

    @IBKR why IBKR web application is always down in the beginning of US Market ? It’s been 3 days same experience. Hope someone can look into this urgently before you lose customer to @WebullGlobal account. Thanks

  • DyleKubas Dyle Kubas (@DyleKubas) reported

    @IBKR I am trying to buy the new Luna ETP. Keep getting an error saying contract is subject to 871 (m). What does this mean and how do I fix it?

  • seong_han Seong-Han (@seong_han) reported

    @IBKR Are there problems with placing Eurex futures orders? What is the ETA for resolving those? $GBL

  • dgetrading It's Dave (@dgetrading) reported

    @IBKR TWS keeps freezing, causing me to abort. Charts still not working after weeks and weeks of issues. Sort out your platform please

  • whitebreadfox Whitebreadfox (@whitebreadfox) reported

    @IBKR Daily reminder: Fix charts on that useless garbage TWS.

  • LeviStr96 Levi Strauss (@LeviStr96) reported

    @IBKR mobile apps down in Canada

  • dgetrading It's Dave (@dgetrading) reported

    @IBKR agree with @whitebreadfox Basic charting is not working and still no fix after weeks of garbage. Stop wasting time on useless bells and whistles and sort out basic, core functionality

  • whitebreadfox Whitebreadfox (@whitebreadfox) reported

    @IBKR TWS sucks. It is THE WORST trading platform available. Charts are loading forever so you can’t trade from that crap. Why add useless stuff? Fix the basics. A user must be able to quickly flip through different tickers.

  • VolQuant Harel Jacobson (@VolQuant) reported

    Say what you want about @TheTerminal , but their helpdesk is the most responsive i've ever encountered... @Refinitiv on the other hand, as bad as @IBKR Waiting for more than 30min to be picked up by a support rep

  • Ahmedyy23927866 Ahmedyy (@Ahmedyy23927866) reported

    @IBKR I have an issue with my account i cant log in because mobil number associated with my account was changed suddenly and i didnt change it please your help

  • LacyFowler85 Lacy (@LacyFowler85) reported

    @danifussers @IBKR If all the brokerages use DTC, and DTC is the problem, how is transferring your shares going to help? Seems fishy.

  • averygrrl Avery 🌸💝📈📊💹✊🌹 (@averygrrl) reported

    Yikes, I cannot get @IBKR TWS to launch *at all*, I can't uninstall it, and I can't install a new copy. The installer/launcher show a flash screen and then the process just ends... I've had this happen with other programs (discord just did it yesterday), forgot how to fix it

  • emreguner Emre Guner (@emreguner) reported

    @IBKR I deleted my application because of a wrong address and wanted to reapply, but now I can't even log in, receiving an error message "Your application was deleted.". This is so impractical, how am I supposed to reapply if you don't even let me log in...

  • bencken_rolf Rolf Bencken (@bencken_rolf) reported

    @IBKR Instead of adding useless, low-effort features: Think about, if you want to invest in core business software like updating your main trading screen TWS, which is an embarrasement. And for ****'s sake: Do sth about that abysmal market data quality!

  • greggfr The Greg Man (@greggfr) reported

    @IBKR Yeah but the service is horrible. System down 30% of the time and you can’t make trades when you need to! Constantly being logged off site and very buggy

  • tiawdnaeulav tiawdnaeulav (@tiawdnaeulav) reported

    @alluvialcapital @IBKR Also a lot of BDs are doing significant cost cutting with management and not necessarily knowing nor having experience in those nuances. They are gearing operations towards cheaper reps and customer management. I call it managing out their customers.

  • ThomasBraziel Thomas Braziel (@ThomasBraziel) reported

    @alluvialcapital @cablecarcapital @IBKR You might be pointing out a #investmenthack - invest in all companies with the worst NPS scores - quick someone get the CRSP tapes!

  • CorpusCol CorpusColossus (@CorpusCol) reported

    @alluvialcapital @IBKR I've had a problem when the company had veto power over transfers (in order to protect tax status allegedly). Needed a letter from the company authorizing it. Took a long time to figure out what the obstacle was.

  • Jn6_68 Tony (@Jn6_68) reported

    @alluvialcapital @IBKR I’ve held shares thru company transfer agent, but if I had any issues I called the company, including the ceo, not the ta.

  • BigBillTwits BigBillTwits (@BigBillTwits) reported

    @alluvialcapital @IBKR Ugh, transfer agents are terrible and IBKR is terrible on non-routine things. Any idea where the hold up is? If you have a sales contact at IBKR they might be able to be helpful working the system at IBKR. If the issue is the transfer agent, company IR can help on that

  • DavePerrino Dave Perrino - Boosted and better than ever.🇺🇸 (@DavePerrino) reported

    @Sequoia8867T @IBKR Which is my problem. This entire scam is based on more and more people giving "him" money for this "virtual asset". Then one day "he" decides to cash out. It crashes and everyone's left holding their hand on their butt. It's Ponzi on steroids.
