Live trading not updating

Noticed this Friday, my algorithms live trading page wasn't updating. I'd refresh, but it still isn't doing anything--not even loading the current stock prices. Showing what was accurate about noon on Friday.

Any thoughts?

Have you considered the opening times of the market? It is in US-Eastern time and closed on weekends.

Yes. Not the issue. It is currently 12:15PM US-EST 4/8/19, and it is showing prices from about 12:00PM US-EST on Friday 4/5/19.

Is it running? (Top right corner)
My live algos are just fine.

Yes. It has been running since 12/3/18 with no issues until now.

Mine always seem to fail with an error after a month or two. But yours says that it is "live"?

Following up on this, the issue resolved itself after about 3 days, but it is back again.

Likely going to ditch Quantopian and find another algo host if I can't figure out what is going on here. No errors are shown.

I am having similar issues to you Michael. My live paper trading page shows Error under status column and an end date of 2019-05-20. When I drill down into the algo... standard message shows up:

something went wrong and your live algorithm has stopped.
There was a runtime error. See the more detailed error below. If you need help, please send us feedback. Once you resolve the problem in the source algorithm, redeploy it to continue live trading.

Not really sure what's going on. Last time this happened few months ago Q was able to fix it.

Several of our servers crashed and the algos running on them stopped. We're working to restore them and they should be running for tomorrows trading. Sorry for any inconvenience.
