There's lots left on the TODO list: http://litecoinglobal.com/

But the system is ready to take some trades.  Early adopters benefit from being able to create assets on the cheap, and from being able to purchase shares in the exchange itself.

Litecoin Global currently supports:

       * Trade STOCKS, BONDS, & FUTURES.
       * Receive email confirmations of your trades!
       * Create your own security for just 1500 LTC.
       * OAuth 1.0a Trade API.
       * Per-transaction fee of 0.2%.
       * Simple, easy to learn interface.
       * JSON API for security values and history.
       * Only LTC exchange you can own shares in.
       * Google Authenticator 2-factor authentication support.
       * Withdrawal fee of 0.1 LTC per transaction.  (to cover fees the litecoin client automatically adds.)
       * Free transfer of LTC between accounts.
       * Free transfer of Assets between accounts.
       * Dividend scheduler.  Plan your future dividends where your shareholders can publicly see them.

Edits/Adds:

The API is up!

FAQ Entry here: https://www.litecoinglobal.com/faq?tab=tab5
I wrote a super-simple demo client.  You can try it out in test mode here: https://www.litecoinglobal.com/burnside-exchange-client/
Download the demo code here: https://www.litecoinglobal.com/dl/burnside-exchange-client_0.8.zip
Account API Configuration page here: https://www.litecoinglobal.com/account?tab=tab4

Anyone familiar with OAuth 1.0 & PHP should be able to get it up and going in no time.  (Eg: Twitter is OAuth 1.0.)

I will definitely be building charts based on sales (price and probably volume) and standing orders.  Those are no-brainers for an exchange and are the higher priorities.  After that, I'm not sure.

I like what I'm seeing here.

I've started a poll to decide which exchange to use for Cognitive-LTC here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=102175.0

I've put a "Getting Started" page on the todo list.  There's a few other higher priority things I have to get done first, but I agree that we need something to help people get started.

"Asset issuer verification system" Should be a priority, and includes minimal effort to set up a manual system. Just look at how the other exchanges do it :P

Is there any way we can "preorder" a security? As in buying a spot now while at the limited time buy price and reserve that spot until you have an idea for a security to list?

There's an interesting thought.  I'm not opposed to it.  Set the shares to 0, set a ticker, but make the contract something generic like "Coming some day soon".

With a contract like that we will not approve it, and will just wait until you email us to set an actual contract, ticker, and share count.

Cheers.

I agree that it is very important to get it right.  I just haven't figured out yet what right is.  I'm not sure I want to follow other exchanges lead on this one.  For personal verifications it may be better to cross-pollinate using an external trust mechanism.  Corporate verifications will likely end up being a paid service, whereby claims made are double checked on publicly available sites.  (Eg, country/state corporate registries, bbb.com, dnb.com, etc.)

Personal or Corporate verified securities could get stars or something next to their tickers.

Our first LTC-GLOBAL dividend paid using the new LTC-GLOBAL dividend scheduling system!

Dividend paid: 11.55 LTC income, 10k shares.

It was paid in 4 actual dividends, three 1 LTC dividends that were tests, then a final 8.55 LTC dividend to make up the difference.

Exciting to see the system working.  Lots of work yet to go, but this was a big hurdle.

Cheers.

Fixed a bug where asset purchases were getting logged backwards.  (as a sale)

It was a logging bug only, did not affect the transfer of the assets or the transfer of LTC.

Trade history now shows up on the security page.

You can now transfer LTC from account to account internally. (zero fee)

Scheduled the last couple days dividend as well.   :)
