U.S based electronic trading brokerage Lightspeed Trading confirmed that on Monday’s trading day, which featured massive market movements and periods of intense market activity and volume, especially at the market open and market close was handled without a hiccup. Lightspeed was proud to announce that Lightspeed Trader, its flagship trading system, remained active and fast throughout the trading day.
Lightspeed and its parent company Professional Trading Solutions (PTS) have invested heavily in its system infrastructure in order to handle rapid and volatile markets with heavy volume. Lightspeed Gateway, its API trading system, and PTS’s other trading platform, Sterling Trader, also performed capably throughout the day.
Lightspeed and PTS are committed to our market of active traders and we will continue to improve our technology and service offerings. PTS’s CEO Farid Naib states, “Yesterday was a challenging market for many traders. In these markets, the last thing an active trader needs to be concerned with is a down or slow system and an overwhelmed support desk. Lightspeed understands our clients, and we work diligently to allow traders to trade with the best tools and support possible. I am very pleased that many of our clients had a positive day and that all of our clients enjoyed functioning systems throughout the day.”
