Makes me want to switch broker.
Who is the modern broker right now? All these old dinosaurs won't spend money to upgrade their platform.

Man, I put in an order with Market Price and never got executed.
Now the stock price has ran away to the upside of course. And I can't even cancel the order. This thing costs me around $200 USD.
