The User Interface is very confusing and bad, Not unto date .
There is a guy called Sanjay Mishra a fraud he changes names when dealing with customers
be very careful of this guy , He is expert in misleading people , I trusted him with my money he promised to do trading on my behalf , he took advantage of that and looted my money.

This kind of Thug brokers are there and I am wondering if Trustline is listening... the day is very near when all your customers will leave you, if you dont put customers need first... any ways one Sanjay Mishra is enough to close your Brokarage firm... Thank you
