Many common questions that we receive from active traders are the features that are available on the Lightspeed Trader Platform. Our support staff is always happy to answer any questions that traders may have or provide a one-on-one personalized demo.
Below are some common questions that we receive about the platform:
How to Link Windows
In this trading tutorial, active traders are walked through how to link windows on the Lightspeed Trader platform. This can be done for any chart or order entry window to a specific level 2 quote window on the platform. Each trader has their own personal preference, so traders have the ability to link multiple charts, with different time frames to the same window or linking to an order entry window. They can also set up multiple link groups so that they can look at multiple quotes and charts at the same time.
Opening and Saving Layouts
Traders have the ability to open a few different default layouts saved within the platform. Often traders will start with a predefined layout and then make changes to suit their trading style. Once they have the layout set the way they want, it can be saved to the desktop for future use. Traders can also save multiple layouts to their computer and then move between those layouts. In this tutorial, traders will view the step by step process to open and then save a layout.
Creating a Custom Stop Closeout Order
Creating a custom stop closeout order allows active traders to quickly place an order on the platform. These custom stop closeout orders can be set up based upon a traders preference, so the tool is easily customized.

Locating Stock for Short Selling
Finding a security to short on the Lightspeed Trader platform can be done in just a few easy steps. When logged into the platform, active traders can do this by typing a symbol in the quote window.
