It simply means that the graphic display bar is missing.  Contrary to popular belief, it is not a signal of trouble with your return.  It simply means your return has been accepted by the IRS and is currently being processed.

@mjjuicey The topic 152 shows for people expecting a direct deposit of their refund, if you are awaiting a paper check you will not see that topic.

Typically, if there are any problems there will be a notifier on the screen once the problem is identified.  Keep an eye on the page, there is no need to check WMR more often than once a day as it updates daily in the wee hours of morning so a check at 8 AM Eastern Time will show the same as a check at 8 PM that same day.  You may see one of the following codes: Tax Topic 151, 152, 203 etc. There should be instructions or a clickable link highlighted in blue to select for more information.  It could be a glitch in the system at this point, I would not be concerned unless that topic changes or you receive a letter from the IRS via postal mail.  Please, please remember that the United States Internal Revenue Service will NOT call you and they will NOT email you!

@immyshasmith1   Which screen?  The PATH or the simple processing with no graphic bar?
