questions regarding execution

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by chittowntrader0, Jan 18, 2008.

  1. I'm trading from Chicago. Currently I have the highest upload and download that my local high speed company offers, I'm running cable modem. I tested it on and I was 11,000kbps down and 370 up and my CPU is top of the line.

    I trade on lightspeed....

    I've notice when the market is really running on the open and close, I can't execute order with my supersmart swipe... I'm trying to liquidate my position and I won't get filled, I'll often watch my position drop huge in my face and I won't be able to get filled. Also during these fast periods the quote look like they are delayed cause they aren't matching the prints.. sometimes the prints will be $2-$3 from the quote... I've lost and let thousands of dollars on the table as a result... the guys at lightspeed really don't know what to tell me, I was wondering ifperhaps you might be able to give me some advice... If you don't mind maybe we could speak on the phone sometime....Thanks man, good luck trading looking forward to hearing back from you!

    Im an aggressive scalper who trades the high flying stocks and this is really holding me back... Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
