Lightspeed Partners with Leading Economists to Launch a New Webinar Series Focusing Macro Economics and their impact on Capital Markets

Lightspeed, a division of Lime Brokerage, has partnered with seasoned economists to create The Economic Edge for Smarter Trading series.

New York, NY – May 20, 2020 – Lightspeed, the premier equity, option, and futures trading provider, has launched a new webinar series, The Economic Edge for Smarter Trading. This series was created to assist the Lightspeed community in making informed investment and trading decisions utilizing additional information. 

These webinars will feature insights from new developments in economic thinking, techniques for reading the economy itself, and ideas for assessing investment and trading strategies. Professional economists will develop the webinars who specialize in teaching non-experts about the economy. They will also explore the emotional and psychological biases that challenge many traders. 

“Lightspeed recognizes that it is difficult for anyone, including economists and financial experts, to keep up with changes in the economy,” stated Farid Naib, Lime’s CEO. “We recognize the value in helping deliver an understanding of the economy, markets, and investment strategies so traders can make educated decisions. We hope this new series provides that insight for our clients.” 

Lightspeed provides these webinars free on a variety of topics around:

  • Key economic indicators
