New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/24/2018 -- For a stunning ninth consecutive year, Lightspeed Trading has been named as one of Barron's top Online Brokers. Of the 18 online brokers listed for 2018, Lightspeed landed at the 9th spot with a 3 1/2 star rating, which is determined using a variety of parameters by the experts over at Barron's. This consistent recognition serves as a testament to Lightspeed's position as one of the top brokers for advanced options trading.

When gathering data to inform their decision, Barron's focuses on specific criteria such as: technology, usability, mobile, range of offerings, research amenities, portfolio analysis, customer service, and cost. Each of these categories is scored individually using a point system where online brokers accumulate points for high performance in each area.

Barron's attributed Lightspeed's position on their Best Online Brokers list to their ability to enhance their flagship software over the past year. These notable improvements include allowing users to request access to difficult-to-borrow securities and giving would-be shorts the ability to approve or disapprove an offer. According to Tom Gibb, the co-president of Lightspeed Trading: "Adding frequently-requested features like short locate is incredibly valuable in the eyes of our clients. We will continue to make improvements to the Lightspeed Trader platform to best serve active traders." Additionally, the platform's ability to remain stable during periods of high volatility along with heavy market volume has helped to establish them among the most elite brokers for online stock trading.
