Lightspeed Trader Offers Prominent Advantages to Active Online Traders

New York, NY – May 17, 2018 – Since its inception in 1994, Lightspeed has established itself as one of the best resources for online stock trading in the United States. The company, which has been driven by innovation since day one, can attribute much of that success to its Lightspeed Trader platform, which allows day traders to customize options chains, trade options, and equities from one location, and use advanced charting to stay informed with to-the-minute updates.

With customizable options chains available through the Lightspeed Trader platform, users can specify that they see only what pertains to their strategy. Since the platform can be condensed to only show traders what they need to see, it allows for complete control. Not only that, but Lightspeed’s online platform allows for full personalization of order routing, hotkeys, and display. Additionally, traders can use the Lightspeed Trader platform to link their options chains to stock quotes, level II options quotes, times, and sales.

“The Lightspeed Trader platform helps users by letting them view both options and equities on one screen,” says Lightspeed co-president Tom Gibb. “Having everything they need in one clear layout allows for seamless platform navigation and a more efficient online trading experience.”

Additionally, Lightspeed Trader comes equipped with personalized advanced charting, which offers users an informative glimpse into everything from comparison charts and moving averages to relative strength indicators and Bollinger bands. With charts that track changes in real-time, traders can benefit from having all pertinent information in one place, using that information to make better decisions and sharpen their market awareness in the fast-paced active trading environment.
