New York, NY – July 12, 2019 – Lightspeed, a premier provider of equities, options, and futures, announced they have updated their Lightspeed Trader® platform by creating a new options window for pre-determined options-specific scans.

And as always, we are there to support our customers in integrating these exceptional new features into their trading strategies.”


In this new options window, traders can select from the following categories of option chain selections:


  • Most Active Options: Displays the most active single options sorted by contract volume.


  • Most Unusual Volume Options: Single options sorted by the largest net differential between the previous day’s volume and today’s volume.


  • Most Active Underliers: Underliers sorted by most options volume on the day.


  • Most Imbalanced Underliers: Underliers sorted by the largest difference in the ratio of call volume to put volume.


  • Unusual Volume Underliers: Underliers are sorted by the largest percent difference between yesterday’s options volume to today’s options volume.


“The team at Lightspeed are securities professionals and former traders, and our customers know that we understand their challenges and that Lightspeed is there to support their success,” Gibb said. “We are confident that these new features will help our clients improve their processes, and it will make a difference in how they execute their trades.”
