I realize the markets aren't open, but I thought I would queue some transactions for when the markets do open.

However, my brokerage won't even accept orders right now.

Another annoying thing: my brokerage won't allow me to change certain account settings unless the markets are open (such as what to do with dividends: reinvest or put into my money market).

Could it be because of the threat from Sandy?

Some of it is.

They are not accepting orders because of Sandy. Usually they do accept transaction orders when the markets are closed. It may just be that they don't have the staff in place to handle processing the orders.

The constraints on dividend investment options exist all of the time. I find that annoying because I am at work when the markets are open. It doesn't often allow me to hop on and change those settings.
