  4. Vvs Prabhakar says:

    Hello Zerodha,

    I am using NOW.exe to trade USDINR contracts in NSE. My chart service provider has charts for MCX-SX only. Can I utilise this Nest starter to view USDINR-NSE contracts?

    Thanks,
    Prabhakar.

  5. Nithin Kamath says:

    Yes you can, but you will have to first migrate to Zerodha Trader platform, so if you don’t already have an account, you will have to open one with us.

  6. Vvs Prabhakar says:

    I think there was a mistake in domain name in Email address in my previous comment. Corrected it.
    Thanks,
    Prabhakar.

  7. Vvs Prabhakar says:

    Hello Zerodha,
    I have migrated to ZT. Bringing to your notice my observation on first look.
    1. For USDINR-NSE contracts, price is specified upto four decimals, but in VWAP statistics, O/H/L/C and VWAP are rounded off to two decimals though shown in four decimals, for eg. 55.1500.
    2. Keyboard shortcut for VWAP statistics,”Ctrl+Shift+H” is not working, have to right click on scrip–>Tools–>vwap statistics.
    Please see if these can be rectified.
    Thanks,
    Prabhakar.

  8. Zubin says:

    Hello,

    I opened the chart, but was unable to add indicators to the chart and if i save the template and upload it again all indicators are lost and again i have to add indicators, can you please let me know if any issues or settings i need to check or rectify.

    Regards
    Zubin

  9. Nithin Kamath says:

    Zubin, presently all the indicators that you add cannot be saved.. Everytime you logout and login, you will have to add it again.. we are working on fixing this issue..

  10. Rajashekar says:

    Hi,

    Is their any charges involved for using nestpus, if are there please share the details.

  11. Nithin Kamath says:

    @Raj, as mentioned in the blog, the starter pack is free of cost, advance tools like Pulse has a cost. You can visit plus.omnesysindia.com to see the various products and their pricing.

    • Prashanth says:

      @Nithin,
      What are the features in Pulse tool, that are not available in the free Nest pack ?
      wanted to know the chart types that are provided free and what are charged..
      Thanks

      • Prashanth,

        Pulse is not really a charting interface, it is a tool to code TA strategies, backtest and go live on them. You don’t have to pay anything for algoZ (pulse as we call), we give it for free. Check this section

  12. Komma says:

    I want to know the features of the indicator, if i am clicking on the help button it is showing no response (Ex : Indicators>> Aroon>> help no response) if i want to know the features of these indicators what is the path or method ?

  13. Nithin Kamath says:

    All the indicators provided on the charting pack is commonly used indicators and you can research on google on what each indicator actually does..You might find a lot more inputs on these websites that focus on TA.

  14. Prabit says:

    ztrader chart, when I click zoom in, it zooms in, but it vanishes current data, it goes backword.Please guide me.

    • Hanan says:

      When you use charts on ZT, it’s best to first press Ctrl + N and get your chart sized to a Normal View since all charts have 22 trading days’ intraday data. Once in the Normal View, you can zoom in and zoom out by using Ctrl + Z or Ctrl + Shift + Z
      Try it… Also, if you would like to view all chart data at once, press Ctrl + X.

  15. Prabit says:

    Sir,
    In z chart when I click on particular indicator, message says “key not unique”. Please advise.

    • Hanan says:

      The ‘key not unique’ message comes about if you’re using Windows XP as your operating system. I would suggest you upgrade to a more recent operating system, maybe Windows Vista or 7.

  16. Prabit says:

    Sir,
    Nestplus not opening. After id and password, it hangs.

  17. Hanan says:

    Prabit, try getting in touch with the NEST Plus helpline directly on 08246612248/65/66 and they’ll be able to help you with this issue.

  18. Moses says:

    As mentioned on step 7.

    Once i save a templet on how many charts can i upload the templets. I was could upload the templet only on the 2 charts. Its not working on the third chart.

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      It should work on multiple charts, upto 6 I guess. This would also depend on your system speed and internet connectivity.

    How to write own scripts (eg. ma crossovers) in nest plus? any technical help?

  20. Raymond says:

    Lately I have been exploring a lot and I am almost clear with most of the Intraday related activities. I do have few doubts for which I was trying to find out an answer and the questions are –

    1)Does the web based trading platform with Zerodha offer all the basic charting tools and the required indicators for Intraday?. I see lot of sites talk about Charting Platform being a separate feature from Trading Platform.

    2)Also, I see a lot of sites talk about Amibroker/Nest Plus Plugin – Do we really need to subscribe for those or are they optional?.

    3)Also, what about the data feeds? Should we subscribe by paying per month/Quarter/Semiannual/Annual basis?. I see a lot of references on Global Data Feeds.

    Last but not the least, is Zerodha Trader (web based/Software based) is all that we need for Intraday Trading?

    Please clarify on the above and I thank in advance for the time that someone may invest in responding back to the above.

    Regards
    Raymond

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      Raymond,

      firstly Zerodha trader is our software based platform, Z5 is our html web based platform, both of these are different. The software platform will definitely be the first choice, but if you cannot install platform because of firewall issues or internet speeds, the Z5 will be the better option.

      1. ZT has charting will suffice from beginner to intermediate charting. It has almost 50 different indicators. But note that the charting on ZT and Z5 is completely different. on Z5 there is very basic charting , hence I mentioned above that ZT should be your first priority. [Click here](http://zerodha.com/z-connect/blog/view/charting-nest-starter-pack)

      2. Amibroker/plugin is optional. You can subscribe to this only if you need to do advanced charting.

      3. Datafeeds will be required to use Amibroker and what package you choose is upto you. As a zerodha client you will get a discount from them. But as I said earlier this is optional.

      4. ZT our software based platform, is advanced, has a lot of tools like SPAN calculator, option strategy etc. We have collocated servers for optimum speed and performance. I’d say this would be among the best choices in the country for intraday trading, both as a trading platform and also considering our pricing model.. 🙂

      Hope this helps..

      Cheers.

    • Raymond says:

      I got my questions answered 🙂 Thank You very much for a quick response.

  21. Anees says:

    i just want to know whether this TECHNICAL ANALYSIS tool can be used simultaneously while trading??? and also in intraday candle sticks chart can we set for the previous 5 to 6 days continues intraday chart in 5mins time frame, please don get confused

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      Yes Anees, The tool can be used simultaneously while trading. Yes we give intraday data for upto 7 days, so you can look at 5 minute candles for upto 7 days. We will soon have a section on Zconnect where we will explain you on a tool where you can put a technical analysis strategy, backtest it and also take it live for semiautomated trading. Keep tracking this section..

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      Charting comes by default, nothing extra to be paid. For trading on tablets on Iphone, [you should try our new html5 platform Z5, click here for more](http://www.zerodha.com/z-connect/blo…leweb-platform) , There is just basic intraday charting on this…

  22. Raymond says:

    Hi Zerodha,

    1) I am using the RSI Indicator on a new panel in the Chart. Cant I overlay the RSI over the Price Chart (just like I overlay SMA or EMA)?

    2) If I am using RSI Indicator, how do I add a signal line such as MA of the RSI to the same panel?

    Thanks in advance for your reply

    Best Regards
    Mohankumar

  23. Mfire says:

    Hi Zerodha

    How to save my own strategy.I would like get alets with help of that saved strategy.

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      MFire,

      we will be soon launching an algo suite on ZT with which you can start running your technical analysis strategies, you can write, backtest and take it live… Do keep following us o zconnect … Cheers,

    how to enable zerodha plugin in nest plus?

  25. tks61 says:

    I am talking about Zerodha Amibroker plug in

  26. SASIMENON says:

    Hi ,

    where is this algo suite?available

  27. param says:

    Hi,
    I saw that we can look at the charts of stocks and F&O. But no where I am able to look at charts of actual nifty/sensex/bank nifty etc.
    where do i see the chart of indices in ZT

    Regards,
    Param

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      Param, you can look at charts of only those that can be added to the marketwatch. Presently indices can’t be added, so you will not be able to look at that chart. You could look at Nifty futures chart or NIFTY BEES chart, both should actually show depict the underlying nifty..

    • param says:

      Is it because Nifty as an index is not tradable and ZT being a trading software and not charting software?

      Is it possible to add them as feature taking request from few customers?

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      We are looking at having charting on index soon, will keep you posted.

  28. ANILPALAN says:

    Hi Zerodha,

    Is it possible to view Weekly and Monthly charts in Nest Plus Starter Pack. If not, will it be available during future upgrades if any.

    Anil Palan

    • Hanan says:

      We still don’t have an option to view weekly/monthly candlesticks on ZT. The best option right now is you can get daily chart data for over a year. To view daily charts, please right click on Nest Plus Charts and choose Historical. In Historical, you can set you time frame.

  29. mpriya4you says:

    Hi Zerodha,

    I am unable to login to NSE mobile application.

    It is asking for member ID and User ID.

    I typed the member i as 13906 (taken from internet) and user id as DM0756 (Client code) but I am unable to login.

    Plz help.

    Regards
    Priya

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      Priya,

      You would need to download the Zerodha Mobile. trade.zerodha.com/download is the link to download that.

      On the Zerodha mobile, you can trade on all exchanges whereas NOW is only for NSE.

  30. NithinJoice says:

    Hi,
    i am not able to open historic chart its showing “error request unknown. please contact administrator”.

    is there any option to view a chart showing buying and selling quantity of a script, on an intraday chart?

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      Nithin,

      You need to first open Plus chart as shown above. Once this chart is open, right click on it and click on historical chart.
      When you right click you also get an option ” Volume Panel” , will show the volume chart.

      Cheers,

  33. Banti says:

    I am unable to See Charting properly because of this I am unable to apply my ZT Algo strategy
    1) When I am pressing shift + P option its showing chart of previous 20~21 days, whreas I require intraday
    2) While right click & giving date for intra day (See e.g) its showing blank chart the same problem is observed while market is running whereas I am getting the chart of intra day with shift+c option
    3) I wanted to go live with my strategy with intra day chart but its showing results of last 20days while backtesting

    I have given mail to India@zerodha.com since last four days but there is no response also called twice but issue is still not resolved

    kindly resolve this

    Regards.

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      Banti,

      By default nest plus would show 22 days chart with intraday data. You can zoom into it until it shows only 1 day chart.
      Going live on 1 day chart or 22days won’t make any difference, it will just be the same. When you go live, alert preference is what matters and not the chart you are looking at. Check this blog for more.

  34. Moresh says:

    Hi,
    I successfully installed to nest plus. But Plus chart is not displaying, showing ” Nestplus error : Pulse dll for Backtest is not registered properly” . Span Calculator is working properly. Please help me

    and “OTP Connection error: 0″… and the problem many time I face is ZT hangs during Logout…can you please look into this issue ASAP..

    Thanks
    Guru

  36. Pallavi says:

    I plot 34 EMA on 1 hour/2 hour and 4 hour chart and use it as part of my study. However in Nest the data is shown only of 22 days. Hence its give a message of invalid period when I try to plot 34 EMA on higher period.
    Can I increase the number of days?

    • Nithin Kamath says:

      The intraday data presently is given only for 22 days and hence a higher period is not possible. But you can check out the historical chart which is a daily chart.

  37. Anilkumarvg says:

    Hi Zerodha,

    I have to seen a message like below, What was that?

  38. Swin says:

    Hai zerodha,
    The very most important chart for Nifty and bank nifty not available in zerodha trader platform. Equity stock chart can see history chart, like this nifty chart is present it will be better. Kindly provide possibity to view nifty history chart. Thanks in advance

  39. drvikas says:

    hello
    is there any way to save drawings such as trendlies, fibonnaccis on charts like we save templates for indicators.

  40. kartikks_stocks says:

    Is there anyway to get nifty intraday day chart for a particular historical day (for eg. intraday chart for sep 26th 2013)

    • Hanan says:

      This feature is something a lot of traders may desire but it isn’t yet available on our trading platform. We’re gonna look at adding this as a feature on a later date.
      As of now you can see intraday data for 22 days at a stretch. If you want data older than that, you have to save it on your trading platform.

  41. Juggy says:

    Hi Team,

    I am frequently getting error message when i open NestPlus Historical Charts.
    Error reads as: “NestPlus Error : om get series vwap data request failed, nexus vwap is down”

    Particularly on sundays, and late evenings the charts throw this error.

    Pl suggest in resolving it permanently.

    Thanks,
    Juggy…

    • Hanan says:

      To view historical charts, you have to first view Plus charts (shift + P) and then within Plus charts, you have to right click and view Historical. This will work.
      If you’re still having problems, do call our support number on 080-40402020

    Hi,

    I am unable to open Nifty chart or any Index chart.. please provide me the step by step process on how i can open Nifty intraday and historic charts using NEST Plus in ZERODHA Trader..

    Regards
    Kiran

    • Hanan says:

      We still don’t provide index charts on Zerodha Trader. This will be made available with the next release of Zerodha Trader.
      For now, the best places to view intraday and historical index charts are Google and Yahoo finance pages.

      • Phani says:

        Can u confirm by when we can expect the next release of Zerodha Trader where we can get live index charts….am waiting eagerly for the index chart on Zerodha Trader….Would be really helpful..

        • Hanan says:

          We have tested the index chart option on Nest Plus but have refrained from adding it. The main reason we hadn’t provided the index chart was because we already had a futures chart available on the index and everybody uses that for trading. The request for index charts is very limited as this is freely available online on a dozen websites live.
          We’re looking at having the index chart available for our next software release.

          • Kaushik Banerjee says:

            Still, analysing index charts is necessary, particularly historical charts, by adding some study lines to it. Futures chart are better for analysing intraday charts.

  43. vaibhav,
    hi does the chart shows pivot, support and resistance points for intraday ????

  44. Akshay says:

    Hi,

    Is it possible to view Nifty Futures Charts and other “Options Charts” using ZT?
    If one needs to trade Futures and Options, then intraday charts are a must have. Please clarify.

To avoid any short position .if zerodha trader had a option of square off button if infront of every position at admin position that would simplify trader (like me) work without any error .i am always afraid of while squaring off my position .kindly look into this matter

    • Sarvesh,

      There is an option to square off from the admin position window, you just have to click on the position, and click on the square off at the right bottom on the admin position window. Check this blog.

    Hello Nithin,
    Firstly reduced charges is a great news. thanks. My query relates to nest charting. When I tried to add 3EMA and 15 EMA in a daily live chart, 15 ema not seen in the chart. How to solve this. I want a crossover of 3EMA and 15 EMA in a Daily live chart. Please help me out.

  52. Kaushik Banerjee says:

    Some very basic but important things needed in charts :

    1) We draw trendlines/horizontal lines in charts. Please allow me to save it as templates like indicators so that next day we don’t have to redraw those trend line again. Forget next day, even if the chart interval is changed those study lines disappear.

    2) Atleast provide weekly charts if you cannot provide monthly/quarterly/annual charts in historical charts.

    3) Allow maximize / minimize option in charts.

    4) Please provide historical charts for index charts. How can you term it unnnecessary because you are providing futures charts ?

    THANK YOU.

  53. Adarsh says:

    Hi How to save my study lines in charting , suppose if i add horizontal line or trend line after saving the template, when i restart the same script and try to upload saved template it will start as new script without any study lines , so please help. ..

    • Hanan says:

      Right now, you cannot save study lines on your charts for future reference. The best option for you is to add any indicators you wish to use and then save the template with those indicators. After this is done, you can load the template every time you want to make some studies.

      To clarify again: You can save indicators as template. You cannot save study lines (horizontal or vertical or trend) as template.

  64. Prem says:

    Hi Zerodha,

    In zerodha trader installed on my PC, the ‘historical chart’ option when selected for any scrip (stock or Index Futures) shows only one candlestick in the chart for the present day but never displays the daily historical chart for the entire selected period like it is supposed to. No matter whatever range I provide as input for the historical chart, I always get the above result. I’ve called Zerodha support and showed them this issue (shared my desktop) and they have said that there is some issue with historical charts and that Zerodha is working on this issue but when I asked about the ETA for this fix, the support didn’t have an answer so, I was wondering if I could get an answer here. I have Zerodha trader version 3.10.57.97.7 and the latest version of Nest plus installed on my windows 8.1 64-bit PC (if this helps)

    • Hanan says:

      Prem, historical charts work on Nest Plus as long as the stock has had some history. I’d suggest you upgrade to the latest version of ZT which is 3.11.2. This is available on our downloads page. Once you’ve installed the latest version of ZT, you will be prompted to upgrade Nest Plus to 2.9.0.0. If you do this, you should not have a problem getting historical charts with all the other basic features.

      If you’re having problems with installation, do call our support number for assistance. We’ve also asked one of the engineers from Omnesys to get in touch with you and I guess they should contact you within the hour. In the meantime, please make sure you delete all older versions of ZT and are upgraded to 3.11.2.
      Check out this image. It’s Reliance historical chart.

        Thanks Hanan. Upgrading to 3.11.2 fixed this issue and Omnesys engineer called to confirm that my issue was resolved. I wish everyone in Zerodha support team worked like you but that doesn’t seem to be the case, at least from my experience in the past few days – I’ve called up zerodha support to inquire about the negative balance in my trading account because last time I traded, which was around more than a year ago, there was no debit balance. The support created a ticket for this rather simple issue (ticket# 692531) and it’s been more than 4 days now and I still haven’t got any answer from the support team inspite of my calling them 3 times in the past 4 days for this ticket. I just wanted to resume trading after a long gap and looks like the support team doesn’t want that!

    i have doubt why is the open price on nse website’s live chart open price is different from the open price in terminal and on nse quotes page, example today(13/10/2014) open price for bank nifty on nse live chart is 15439.95 but in trading terminal and nse quotes page the open price is 15395, why is this happening,

  66. kishan says:

    i have been using ZT for the past 1 and half years and didn’t face any problem but now intraday chart is not working ,can you please fix it

  69. VIDYA says:

    Dear Nithin,

    I have a doubt in placing a buy order. Consider a ex: at present RIL is trading at Rs. 1000 but I want to buy it only above Rs. 1010. Since, I am not a full time trader, I cannot sit in front of my computer to check whether it reaches 1010 or not. In such cases can I use limit order? or is there any other way to place such order? Please guide me

    • Vidya, If you want to buy at 1010, you will need to use a SL order to enter. So choose the SL option and keep a trigger of 1010, so when price moves to 1010 your order gets sent to the exchange. Check this post for more.

    I am trading using the intraday 15 min chart in ZT, 3 days ago I upgraded the Nest Plus from 2.8 to 2.9. I am getting two problems after installing this version. First I couldn’t see the 15 min timeframe and Second is the chart screen is Blinking as price fluctuates. I called Zerodah Care but not solved my problem.

      If you are having problems doing a clean update of Nest Plus, please read on.
      Kindly follow the below procedure in order to upgrade your Nest Plus plugin:
      Download the Nest Plus 2.9.0.0 (zip) file from this link under the heading Utilities. Ensure you’re using Version 3.11.2 of Zerodha Trader.
      Once downloaded, you will have to unzip the folder, then open the folder Nest Plus 2.9.0.0 and copy all the contents.
      Go to C://Program Files/Omnesys/NEST3 or C://Program Files(x86)/Omnesys/NEST3 and paste all the copied contents into it.
      While pasting the copied files, you will get a prompt “Confirm Folder Replace” for which you have to choose “Do this for all current items” and click on Yes. Once you’ve clicked on Yes, another prompt to Copy File would pop up for which you have to tick “Do this for all conflicts” and then select the Copy and Replace option.
      Once the above procedure is followed, your Nest Plus plugin would be upgraded and you should see black charts.

      Note that all of Zerodha’s clients are automatically registered on Plus to get additional features. To check if you’re registered on Plus as a Zerodha Client, do this:
      1. Go to Nest Plus* > My Nest Plus Account > Plus Dashboard on Zerodha Trader
      2. On Plus Dashboard check if your client ID shows up on top. If it does, great.
      3. If your client ID doesn’t show up, choose “Logout/Login with new Plus ID” and key in either of the following:
      a. username: CLIENTID or ZERODHA_CLIENTID
      b. password: CLIENTID or ZERODHA_CLIENTID
      *Note: This works only on your Zerodha account. If this still doesn’t work, please feel free to write back our call our support number.

  76. maddy says:

          • Hanan says:

            Congrats that you trading account is already open with us! It’s just a matter of time before your demat account is open as it takes longer to open a demat account due to additional checks required. If all documentation is accurate, we presume your demat account will be open within 5 working days.

            About your old Nest Plus ID, please don’t use it. All of Zerodha’s clients have exclusive features available on Nest Plus which are not available if you maintain an individual account on Nest Plus. Your username and password for Nest Plus will be ZERODHA_CLIENTID

            If you’ve followed the instructions on updating Plus on ZT version 3.11.2, it should work. If it’s still not working don’t hesitate to call our support number on 08040402020

    Facing problem — I am facing White Intraday chart which is not good , getting too much problems, I called customer care , they told me I have to register to nest plus and from themselves they made my registration, still I am getting the same problem, I cant trade without chart…… PLz help

  79. sam says:

    Same problem with me – getting white charts which is not useful for intraday trading. This happens even after install Zerodha Trader 3.11.2 along with Nest Plus 2.9.0.0 and doing the copy-replace from the zip file as suggested above,
    With Pi release on the horizon would really appreciate it if they let us know if this
    white background chart issue will get fixed at all ? or that we should wait for the Final Pi release and give up on Nest Plus altogether?
    Please clarify if it is best to switch to Pi?

  80. Sadhan Ghosh says:

    I am a Nest Plus user since last 3 years. But since last month, I am unable to get the multi indicator intraday chart (live streaming) for Nifty on introduction of their new version. I only follow one chart, i,e, 7 day and 20 day moving average superimposed on a bollinger band of SD 2.

    I would like to know you can provide such chart, if yes, can you club it with my online Nest Trader package and what is your subscription charges? I would like to have your earliest response in this regard per return mail.

    Thanks and best regards. Sadhan Ghosh, Kolkata

    How do I add multiple EMA indicators to one chart?

    • Sandeep says:

      Can someone pls help with my query?

      • Hanan says:

        Sorry, we missed your comment. This is easy, Sandeep.

        On Nest Charts, after you’ve opened your chart…

        1. Choose Moving Average from the Indicator list on the left hand side.
        2. On Moving Average, you can choose Exponential from the drop down menu.
        3. After you’ve added your first EMA, you can repeat the process.
        4. You can have 3 to 5 EMAs running at the same time on Nest Charts.
