Also the biggest disadvantage is that in December 2005, the server down is very severe. It will be a problem in timing-oriented day trading that the software falls 2-3 times a day (in some cases more than 5 times). I would like to see rapid improvement in Rakuten Securities.It seems I did not like the description that.

Incidentally, in addition to the market speed, the server may be falling on other occasions as well.
