Lightspeed has a downloadable package that can run on your desktop and can be configured so that the tools you like the most can always be at the top. The tools for trading are built into Lightspeed Trader, which means the strategies are pre-determined. You can send your orders too almost any venue available. LivevolX, which is an options-focused platform designed to specifically evaluate and trade options, is more engaging and have good graphics, but it can be a bit complicated for some users. The web version, on the other hand, has fewer graphics, but it is easier to use.
