  1. did anyone have issues with lightspeed latency today??
  2. saico


    Had a lot of trouble with that today. Also issues with loading charts.
  3. yes weird today, i thought it was my ISP.

    had positions opened, right after i was flat...bad lag.
  4. For the last 3 weeks I too have missed many good moves. Spent some time with LS on the phone today and he looked at my layout. I have too many charts with too many indicators. So when I closed all chart EXCEPT 1 (my 5 minute 3 day chart) the level 2 quotes and chart drawing was flying much better. Actually "trade-able" better.

    So I am going to look into a second charting option for my board views, SPY QQQQ charts and maybe try to link the level 2 daily chart in there. I hope this will cut down the lag issues I have every close lately.

    Maybe Realtick, or Maybe Esignal. Have not decided yet.
