Lightspeed Trader is the ideal software for both day traders and investors with our flagship trading platform offering equities and options routing to over 100 destinations.
See a detailed list of features below.
We continually upgrade Lightspeed Trader to give active traders an edge in the market. The technology and features built into our platform are driven by one goal: to give real traders the ultimate tools for seizing market opportunities. We pride ourselves on providing the fastest market data and order management solutions in the industry.
Lightspeed allows you to easily build and trade complex options strategies like debit and credit spreads, straddles, strangles and butterflies. Our interface lets you quickly select the options legs you want to trade and automatically creates “multi legged” order tickets with your desired strategy. The navigation is simple, intuitive, and extremely powerful. To top it off, take advantage of additional intraday leverage extended to you from hedged options strategies.
Set up your options chains to display the exact info you need to see. Lightspeed offers dozens of columns and settings. Our options chains are fully interactive. Select multiple lines in your chain and automatically send the corresponding strategy to your order entry window. You can also link your chains to stock quotes, level II options quotes, and options prints (time and sales).
The COE window can receive multiple lines directly from the options chain. This allows you to quickly and easily select, stage, and send your complex options strategy orders. With our low options commissions, you never pay extra for complex orders.
You can do much more with the new COE:
Lightspeed Trader allows you to configure up to 10 personalized screen layouts. Each layout can stretch across four monitors, and you can switch between layouts with the click of a button.
