Product rental feature in the Market

Now, in addition to purchasing MetaTrader Market applications, users can also rent them. Renting a product is clearly much cheaper than purchasing a full license. By renting a program for a certain period of time, users can assess its fully functional version to make sure that it is really what they need.
