Lightspeed Trading Adds Short Request Functionality to Its Flagship Trading Platform

New York, NY – March 15, 2017 – Lightspeed Trading has announced that it has made requesting shorts much easier in its latest Lightspeed Trader platform version 8.2.171. Now customers can request shorts not found on the Easy to Borrow list directly from within the platform itself.

In partnership with Velocity Capital, LLC, Lightspeed Trader makes it possible for clients to request, price, and obtain locates in a fully automated fashion. Customers wishing to short a stock not on the Easy to Borrow list will no longer have to phone the support desk, resulting in quicker and easier access to borrows.

“Automated short locate functionality within the front end was something our customers expressed great interest in,” said Tom Gibb, Co-President of Lightspeed Trading. “We take great pride in listening to our active traders and expanding Lightspeed Trader’s functionality in ways that enhance their trading experience.”

If you currently use Lightspeed Trader and would like to access the new short requester, please download the latest version of the platform and contact Lightspeed Client Services to enable the window. You can reach our desk at 888.577.3123 (Option 1) or via email at [email protected].
