Lightspeed adds API trading by entering into an exclusive license and development agreement with Atreyu Tech

Quantitative traders with a desire for strategy automation will benefit from an easy-to-integrate API developed by Atreyu Tech exclusively for Lightspeed

Morristown, NJ – October 24, 2023 – Lightspeed Financial Services Group LLC, the home of professional traders, will offer a professional API connection for trading automation for the active, professional, and retail trading community as well as software platforms via APIs developed for Lightspeed from Atreyu Tech.

Atreyu is a leading provider of high-performance technology solutions to the capital markets. They provide trading access and infrastructure to algorithmic and quantitative trading professionals. These traders automate and integrate their strategies through an API to trade assets in multiple markets with speed, efficiency, and technology that offers the following benefits:

·      Advanced architectural design

·      Unparalleled versatility

·      Scalability and personalization

·      High-speed throughput

·      Position monitoring and risk surveillance

·      Trading access infrastructure


“We are proud to bring automated API trading to our client base. By partnering with Atreyu, we will eliminate the operational overhead that has prevented a large segment of traders from implementing institutional-level automation,” said Tom Gibb, Co-President and COO of Lightspeed.

Lightspeed will be the only broker-dealer allowing retail traders to connect to Atreyu’s infrastructure through simplified and easy-to-code APIs. This is especially beneficial to the individual or non-professional trader by reducing the need for developers. Traders will be able to host, manage, and scale messaging with an easy-to-set-up and use messaging API. This API will be available to retail and professional traders later this year.
