Latest Version of Lightspeed Trader Offers Enhancements to Order Entry, P&L Graphs, and More

Here at Lightspeed, we make it our mission to be one of the best stock brokers for day trading. To that end, we frequently update our flagship trading software, Lightspeed Trader, with enhancements that are designed to improve the user experience and to help traders to be successful with what they do every day.

The latest version of Lightspeed Trader, 8.2.302, is now available for download. Here, we give an overview of the new and updated features in this release.

P&L Graph in Complex Order Entry (COE)

View your profit and loss scenarios more easily than ever before. A P&L graph will display directly within the Complex Options Order Entry window. Simply hover your mouse along the x and y-axis of the graph to view the projected price and profit at each intersection.

Order Entry Window Route Configuration

Customized order entry is now even more sophisticated. You can add and remove both custom routes and strategies in the order entry window. Choose the market and the type/contra. You can even save multiple custom routes.

Display Portfolio Margin

In this version, you will now be able to view your portfolio margin in realtime. You can choose whether to see this information in the Index Bar or in the Account Summary Window. Simply ask your RM to have this feature set up.

Scale Charts by Price Only

You now have the option to scale your charts by price only, with studies displaying outside of the scale of the chart. Just select the check-box in the chart column to use this new sorting feature. Additionally, you can choose to show only the summary for the chart price, and not the studies, along the y-axis.

Show Pending Buy and Sell Shares

In the positions window, you can now see a separate column which displays shares that are currently pending for each symbol.

Percent Volume Column in Lightscan

Lightscan, our scanner built directly into the Lightspeed Trader platform, also gets an update in this release. You can now see a separate column for % Vol 30 Day, which indicates today’s current volume as a percentage of the 30-Day ADV. This column is also sortable.

High Contrast Buttons

While Lightspeed Trader already had plenty of visual customization options, we now have another: You can choose to use high-contrast buttons in the order entry window. By selecting this option, the “buy” button will stand out in bright green, while the “sell” button will be visually distinct in bold red.

By making frequent enhancements to the Lightspeed Trader platform, we are able to make it one of the best trading tools for active traders. Try it out for yourself by requesting a demo today.
