Please keep in mind that some customer service/technical support issues are best handled through proper channels at Ironbeam, and not here in this thread.

Jamie Leibfried - Relationship Manager

Jamie joined Lime Brokerage in 2018 with over 11 years of experience in the brokerage industry. Jamie started in the industry working at efutures. There, she supported clients in the customer service capacity and trade desk responsibilities. She worked for various FCMs assisting the client services and funds management departments.

Mark Frantz - Vice President | Futures

Mark Frantz has been brought into Lightspeed, a division of Lime Brokerage, to help support and build out their futures offering after working in the futures industry for nearly 38 years. His career began as a runner for Merrill Lynch on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. He worked his way up to Vice president of Institutional sales, covering some of Merrill Lynch’s largest futures clients. The years after the floors largely went away saw him working for various futures related companies as well as a two-year stint with Terra Nova, an equity broker dealer. Most recently, Mark spent 10 years with the high volume, professional trader FCM, Advantage Futures. Mark holds the following licenses: Series 3, 7, 24, 55 and 63.

Hi guys,

It is my pleasure to welcome Joe Gits @ Social Market Analytics, sponsored by Lime Brokerage and Lightspeed, for our 380th webinar event on Thursday, April 9th @ 4:30 PM Eastern US.

The title for the event is "Social Media Predictive Data for Traders" and bullet points include:

- What social media sentiment can offer every investor
- Using predictive data while trading
- Social Market Analytics (SMA) patented social media framework
- How to use the SMA Dashboard on the Lightspeed Trader platform when trading stocks and options
- How to use the SMA Dashboard on Lightspeed’s efutures (CQG) platform when trading futures

Social media is a powerful vehicle that may have the ability to impact the price performance of all securities and create possible investing opportunities. Social Market Analytics has taken the full Twitter firehose, captured the tone of the conversation, and baselined it against historical data to create statistically significant scores.

This analysis can be viewed by Lightspeed customers using widgets that provide real-time metrics regarding the tone of the conversation and relative Tweet volume from influential accounts on Twitter. The SMA widgets will offer active traders a powerful tool for including social media sentiment data in their trading strategies.

We will cover the following topics:
- Patented social media framework
- What social media can offer every investor
- How to use the SMA Dashboard on Lightspeed Trader
--- Top 10 Sentiment
--- Bottom 10 Sentiment
--- Accurate Accounts Long Side
--- Accurate Accounts Short Side
--- Sentiment by Symbol
- How to use the SMA Dashboard on Lightspeed’s efutures (CQG) platform when trading futures
- And much more

Futures trading involves the substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. Each investor must consider whether this is a suitable investment since you may lose all of or more than your initial investment. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

@Lightspeed I just caught the CNBC interview with Terry Duffy from CME regarding Negative futures prices and it surpised me. Wilbur Frost asked him was it fair to say that Retail traders should have know that WTI futures could fall into negative territory and leave these traders with negative balances in their trading accounts. Mr. Duffy's reply was "Of course they should have known. It's common knowledge and it has happened before!"
Lightspeed when someone opens up a futures account with you is this fact brought to the forefront with new clients or is it buried in the fine print. I only say this because before last Tuesday I as well thought that a deliverable futures contract could not fall below Zero for the simple reason that anything under zero has no value and therefore no 2 way transaction (BUYER and SELER). I mean how does one buy something at a negative number. Just curious of how you at Lightspeed (LIME) disclose this to new traders. Thank you!!

I stay away from futures and options for a reason. No, check that, so many reasons. This is one of them. Way, way, way over my head. I would not even think of touching them until after I had several different classes and a mentor I could touch base with over my first few contracts.
