Charting Features That Make Lightspeed Trader One of the Best Tools for Active Traders


Every trader has a different set of goals, but not every stock option trading software platform can accommodate those individual trader’s unique needs. Regardless of the diversity of ambitions that exists among traders though, there is one capability that every trading platform must have in order for its users to be successful: easy-to-use, comprehensive charting.

Lightspeed Trader, our flagship trading platform, offers our customers some of the best charting capabilities of any other online trading platform. Furthermore, unlike similar products, our charting was developed in direct response to our customers’ requests and feedback, which means it is designed to accommodate the various, unique needs that traders bring to the table.

Modify Orders

Within Lightspeed Trader’s charts, users can add orders, executions and cancels all in the Trading subtab. In fact, users can even select and move multiple orders at once.

Zoom to Focus on a Selected Area

The ability to zoom and manipulate one’s view of the charts is one of Lightspeed Trader’s handiest capabilities. Furthermore, just using your mouse, users can change timeframes without worrying about inadvertently changing something else.


Lightspeed Trader users can incorporate studies and modify them according to the following options.

  • Moving average and exponential moving average – Calculates average based on closing price based on the last X Bar in a given chart.
  • Bollinger Bands – Consist of a middle band = X period of SMA, an upper band at N times standard deviation above and a lower band at N times standard deviation below.
  • MACD – When this feature is selected, Moving Average Convergence/Divergence displays in its own pane below the chart.
  • RSI – Like, MACD, the Relative Strength Index will also show up in its own pane below your price chart.

Trend Lines

Finally, Lightspeed Trader’s users can create, manage and manipulate trend lines all within the charts themselves, affording them the ability to make decisions based on their own forecasts and market evaluations.

Here at Lightspeed, we’re always investing our time and resources into our products, and our customer-driven approach to their development is part of what makes Lightspeed Trader the best charting software for day trading.
