What is Direct Access?

Direct Access is the ability for traders to send their orders directly from their broker to a US Exchange like NYSE ARCA, NASDAQ, or CBOE.

What is “True” Direct Access?

“True” Direct Access is the ability for your broker to send your order directly to an exchange without having to route it to a third-party broker acting as a middleman.

What is the benefit of “True” Direct Access?

Speed – True Direct Access will get your order to the exchange faster.

What kind of routing does SpeedTrader provide?

SpeedTrader provides True Direct Access, Sponsored Access, Scrape Routes, Market Makers, Dark Pools and more.

Why do other DAS Trader brokers not provide True Direct Access?

We would hate to speculate, but it is likely due to cost. It is accurate that “True” Direct Access is fast, but it also costs a little more. Many brokers don’t provide real direct access so they can pocket the difference.

SpeedTrader was designed for one purpose…
 to execute trades FAST!

SpeedTrader has prioritized providing…
FAST order entry and routing destinations.

Many say there is nothing more important than…
SPEED, when day trading or actively investing.
