Your on line trading terminal getting horrible each day passes.Its getting so complicated that its become high risky to take intraday positions to trade.Online buy/ sell orders hang for several minutes before you actually see it,by the time the price of execution has come and gone.Help desk chat doesnot open.Please do not do any other thing just expedite and improve the trading terminal process.The terminal goes off to sleep every 5 to 10 minutes.Accounting system has gone total haywire.Every day I got to load and reload 20 to 40 times ,every time the loading re- loading process takes 8 minutes.

The terminal is not user friendly at all.Every upgraded version has its fresh set of new problems.But you have actually downgraded the terminal and it has become high risk to trade.
