They said about Markets.com
* It’s possible to close only part of a trade (say you have a CFD on 4 shares, you can enter how many shares you want to close). This isn’t available from every broker and very valuable if the market is not going your way and you want to cut losses and reduce risk but keep something going.
* The user interface of the website is very good and easy to work with.
* I think markets.com have a very nice interface, and very good service.
