Stock Broker Uptime Monitor for US Clients

Updated as of 2021.02.18. 7 am EST

We are aware that most US brokers have experienced service outages, lags, or have suspended retail trading of recently popular stocks such as GME, BB, AMC, etc. Below you can find a table listing those US brokers that had serious, minor, or no problems with their services. We keep this table updated by closely monitoring:

  • whether a broker had an outage in the last seven days
  • whether a broker had suspended retail trading on popular stocks

Please be aware that trading on margin and other leveraged trading strategies could be extremely risky in times of high market volatility. Sharp price moves could quickly wipe out your invested capital.

As of now, these brokers had issues in the past 7 days:
