ITG AlterNet and ITG Posit Routes



Lightspeed Trader offers connectivity to ITG for access to their Posit and AlterNet dark liquidity routes.


To send an order with your keyboard or Hot Button, create a custom route with ITGA (AlterNet) or ITGP (Posit) as both the Market and Contra.


ITGA: Alternet is IOC only. Orders will be filled or canceled back immediately, regardless of your TIF.


ITGP: Orders will rest on Posit. Users can add and remove liquidity.

To have either or both of the ITG routes added to your order entry window as seen below, please contact your Relationship Manager:
