We experienced technical difficulty with stock and single leg option orders. Complex option orders were not affected. Some executions may not have reported back to the user. Exceutions and positions will be accurately reflected on Monday morning. All orders showing as pending during the outage have been canceled except for CXL GTC and CXL/REP GTC. Orders entered after the close will queue for Monday as usual. We apologize for the inconvenience.
