Barron's considers firms' cheap pricing as the strongest Just2Trade's advantages in 2016:

Here it is Barron's opinion on Just2Trade: "Just2Trade has been relaunched and bears no resemblance to the previous platform. Customers who stuck with the site through some legal travails may have a rough time adapting to the new layout. The range of offerings is fairly limited – no mutual funds, fixed income, or complex option trading. Research is virtually non-existent outside of quotes. And the platform itself is clumsy – new windows at times seemed to open randomly when we were clicking on news headlines, for instance. Some of the wording on the site seemed clumsy as well.

On the plus side, it’s very cheap."
