Webinar Recap: Lightspeed Trader 101

As one of the best stock brokers for day trading, we pride ourselves on providing powerful and intuitive trading software. We have made it our mission to give traders all the tools they need to grow and flourish in the industry. In that vein, we recently held a webinar to review some of the basic features and configurations present in our flagship trading platform, Lightspeed Trader.

In the webinar, Rob Livson, VP of Business Development and Sales at Lightspeed, showcased the platform’s fundamental functions and its potential for a high level of customization. Using both demo and live versions of the software, he demonstrated its flexibility, speed, and efficiency.

Customize Anything and Everything

Traders using Lightspeed Trader can configure almost any aspect of the platform to suit their own preferences and needs. Users can create and easily switch between multiple page layouts. Each layout may include a wide array of windows with different functions like order entry, Level 2 access, chart analysis, and much more.

Lightning-Fast Processing

The Lightspeed Trader platform has the ability to both execute and cancel orders almost instantaneously. The responsive software makes it easy to view the status of your orders and make changes on the fly. Once you set your preferred configurations, everything from your open positions and pending orders to industry news and market analysis can be readily displayed with just a click or two.

Routing Capabilities

Our platform allows you to select from a comprehensive range of market destinations and routing venues. This flexibility gives traders full visibility of the selected exchange’s order book and all of its trade orders. With this knowledge, you can better optimize your bid/offer spreads while taking market liquidity into account.


Traders can map almost any action to a hotkey or hot button in our software. Once they configure such options, they can easily perform one-touch order executions, modifications, and cancellations. Users may also set custom risk settings, stop orders with preset amounts, and set predefined bids, allowing them to streamline their daily trading activities. The possibilities are only limited by the user’s preferences.

This recap only scratches the surface of our platform’s capabilities. The webinar can be viewed in full on our website, https://www.lightspeed.com/.
