Lightspeed Trader’s New Short Locate Feature Has Arrived

Here at Lightspeed, we are staying ahead of the curve and making good on our promise to provide the best trading system for active traders with our latest update to Lightspeed Trader. With version 8.2171 of our award-winning platform, users can now request shorts not found on the Easy to Borrow list directly in the platform. No emails necessary. No phone calls required.

Quick, Easy Access to Borrows

Thanks to our partnership with Velocity Capital, LLC, Lightspeed Trader users can request, price, and obtain locates in a fully-automated fashion. What’s more, traders who want to short a stock that isn’t on the Easy to Borrow list will no longer be required to phone the support desk. It all happens directly in Lightspeed Trader. All of this means quicker, easier access to borrows.

In case you missed our email about this new functionality, here’s how it looks within the platform:

For Current Lightspeed Trader Users

If you are currently a Lightspeed Trader user, you can take advantage of the new short requester by downloading the latest version of the platform. Then, contact Lightspeed Client services to enable the window by phone at 888-577-3123 or via email at [email protected].

Our customers had been expressing interest in automated short functionality for some time, and we heard them. In fact, we regularly seek their input, which is what sets us apart as the best trading platform for stock and options.

Lightspeed Trader was already simple to use, intuitive, and extremely powerful. The addition of its latest short locate feature adds another dimension to its versatility. If you are not currently a Lightspeed Trader user, contact us today to schedule a demo.
