has anyone had the following issues with IB and know how to solve them:

1. slow downloading of charts. the rest of my internet seems fine, explorer and mozilla load quick enough. The charts in IB TWS load slowly and sometimes just hang with a blank screen.
2. Stops are traded through multiple times and not triggered.
3. Noisy charts full of Spikes

IB will no doubt give you the answers immediately.

Hi craigd

1. I've never liked or used TWS charts, although I understood they'd got better over time. I use quotetracker charts(free if you don't mind an banner ad or 2) linked in to TWS data feed.

2. Check your settings under Configure > Order> Presets > your instrument type. For example is the "Time in Force" Day or GTC (good till cancelled). Have you checked the box for allowing trades to be executed out of regular trading hours?

3. QuoteTracker have a spike removal tool, although I rarely have to use it. Also closing and restarting TWS every day corrects the volume data somehow.

You don't ... you just start trading/charting the next one. Although TWS will warn you when you're getting close to the date where your current one expires.

Rollover would imply a proper charting product like Sierra Chart or Amibroker.

Is IB accessible via iPhone to trade?
If not, are there any other brokers which will allow me to trade via an iPhone?
