In the bottom right hand corner, I have a connection status. what does that mean? I know green bars over red mean I am connected but, to the right of that is 2 numbers looking like this 9/0 kb. What do those mean? I just cannot seem to stay connected toady and it is really getting on my nerves. I have been on here for about 10 hrs now and have had to restart my computer about 20 times. Everything has been fine til today. Please help

If you guys are just demo-ing and not trading live, why not have a backup platform? Go to StrategyBuilderfx.com and load their MT4. Then you can copy you indicators to their folder at
Programs Files/StrategyBuilderfx/experts/indicators That way if one demo is down, you can use the other...
even if you are trading live, it would not hurt to have the backup for the charts.
ps, If your charts were to go down on the IBFX live account, you could still use the Demo charts at SBfx and phone the desk at IBFX That way you would not be blind. Redundancy is the key...
Quoting Achilles heel
IBFX MT 4 demo platform tanking for me since last night. Intermittent connections.
Yeah I restarted my computer 25 times today. That is no exaggeration either. I did what scott said. I downloaded strategy builder so I have back up charts. I think I am gonna open an account with Oanda though and just use MT$ from them 2. I have heard alot of good things about Oanda and I want to do a mini account and that would be the best way to do it (I think)
