Yes, trade context is a well known error.

Means you've sent a trade, and before you received a reply you've sent another. Can be because you're running more than 1 EA that's trying to trade at the same time or you've sent a trade but the server is hanging and not getting back to you before you send the next one.

To resolve it if you're using more than 1 EA, set a global variable that all the EA's must read before it trades. So if EA 1 is about to trade, set the variable to 1 or something, do the trade and then reset it to 0. So if EA 2 gets there and it's already 1, make it wait till it is 0, then send your trade.

Usually this error comes from your mt4 / is not an issue with the broker.

It happens usually if you have say 2 EAs on the same mt4, and the second one try to open/modify/close trade while the first one is already opening/closing/modifying an order.

Must be having fun today, that's the second freeze. Moment something hits the market they freeze....

I'm with IBFX myself, and Oanda, so for the record I feel your pain. But it's kind of how it goes. They've been having this problem for 3 weeks now.

yes IBFX did it again.

They still owe me 2 answers.
What happened? What action items you have done to prevent it in future.
They simply ignore these questions.

It was a great broker so far... but it is not anymore.

The technical issue is possible. But the lack of communication just sucks.

So happens their CEO, for IBFX Australia anyway is on twitter, I tweeted him, got a response and as a result have him on my Skype.

Doesn't happen often where you can directly communicate with a CEO.

I suggest to work this problem you look for IBFX on twitter, and ask them directly what's going on. Nothing like social media pressure to bring an issue to bear.

@adrian8891

You realise IBFX is owned by Monex? This is not your average mickey mouse bucket shop. They have billions and years and years of experience in markets.

I closed all my positions and I am going elsewhere.
This broker is no longer reliable. Beware of IBFX
