Fausty is furious!

Interactive Investor offers Quotestream – a reasonably good Level 2 stock market trading interface. When it works.

More often than not the blasted thing, reliant on Java, fails to load. And at crucial times, such as the start and end of the trading day and the start of the American trading days, the b*ggering thing crashes. Oftentimes, to get the java applets working involves a system reboot.

Does III really consider reboots to be an acceptable solution? I certainly don’t.

And then there’s ADVFN. A fine service, when it works. Sadly, even paid members find that they can’t connect to level 2, due to java issues. ADVFN’s customer ‘service’ is anything but – it should be renamed “customer denial service”.
