Lightspeed Trader Platform Maintains Stride with Market Volatility


Lightspeed, a division of Lime Brokerage, provides stable and reliable trading platforms that professional traders need. During the recent period of market volatility, Lightspeed’s platform met the challenge of very active markets while other trading platforms fell behind.


New York, NY – February 26, 2020 – Lightspeed Trader®, the flagship trading platform at Lightspeed, provides a dependable trading system for active traders that allows them to reliably operate even during extreme market volatility. Where other equity and options platforms may struggle with heavy volume and activity, Lightspeed Trader maintains consistent performance. During the recent market moves, several industry trading platforms experienced technical difficulties — users encountered login issues, slow performance, inaccurate data, and substantial hold times — due to system outages and several days of turbulent market activity. During this time, Lightspeed Trader remained accurate, fast, and stable with excellent customer service.


In today’s financial climate, active traders can expect periods of acute market volatility. Fast-moving markets demand a trader’s full attention. During such times, they depend on their trading platforms to perform at a consistently high level so that they may withstand or even profit from these market movements. Lightspeed Trader was designed to be a robust solution.


“Professional and active traders count on their trading platforms to weather every storm,” said Kevin Ott, Co-President. “Our users can trust us to remain fully operational in even the most tempestuous markets.”


Besides reliable stability, the company’s platforms also offer traders unprecedented access to market data and a wide range of customization options. Additionally, even when developments in the news or changes in policy rock the market, traders can depend on Lightspeed’s software for low latency and lightning-quick order execution.
