Zerodha Educate – webinars for traders

February 17, 2017


If you aren’t already aware, we run the following popular educational initiatives:

  • Varsity –  an easy to follow and in-depth guide to investing and trading.
  • Z-Connect – a blog on everything about trading at Zerodha.
  • Trading Q&A – a Q&A community to discuss and explore all things markets.

Even though these 3 initiatives together are probably amongst the most active on stock market education on the web, we know that a lot more can be done. We have decided to bring you the wisdom of experienced market participants through a series of live and interactive webinars and help you learn and grow as traders and investors through “Zerodha Educate“.

Weekly webinar

The webinars will be conducted and videos later shared on our YouTube channel. We plan to invite professional traders, fund managers, analysts, and more. To start off with the initiative, I will be conducting two webinars this month – one on our journey as Zerodha and our plans for the future (Wed, Feb 22nd) and another one on taxation when trading (Wed, March 1st).

The team from smallcase would be doing a couple of sessions – ‘Understanding smallcase’ (Sat,Feb 18th) will be about the concept of smallcase & why you should invest in equities through it, how it can be the easiest way to invest in stocks and a better alternative to mutual funds. ‘Finding your smallcase’ (Sat, March 4th) will explain the different types of smallcases present on the platform, and how you should look at selecting your smallcase from the lineup of 60+ smallcases.

We recently also had the Co-CIO of Birla Sunlife AMC talking about tax saving mutual funds (ELSS). Click here to  view the recorded webinar.

Check out the webinar calendar for all the upcoming events.

Daily platform demos

We will also be running two quick 30 min interactive demo sessions daily on everything trading @Zerodha.  Hop on to the channel anytime during the demo and  have your queries clarified.

Don’t forget to check out the recently uploaded training videos on all aspects of trading on Kite – our web trading app. These can also  be accessed from within the Kite user manual.

If you have suggestions on topics we ought to cover or whom you’d like to see on the webinars, let us know in the comments below and we will do our best to make it happen.

Happy trading,

  2. Maulik gangani says:


  3. Amit karadani says:

    Why not give zerodha any market tips.

    Like hdfc security.

  4. James Soosai says:

    wannaby trader

  5. Sumit says:

    ‘Market timing’, need a webminar on this. Possible?

  6. Swapnil Bhaskar says:

    Vvvvvv good


    do webinar in hindi

  8. k.g.mittal says:

    Thanks for providing low charge trading platform. Education in trading is another good initiative.

  9. S K Singh says:

    Hope you also come up with an initiative which would help small-timers like me recover the lakhs we lost trading. Someone to hand hold and guide us, a mentor maybe. Any resources?

    • The three links I have shared has all that you need to learn. Mentoring, hmm… let me check with our team.

      • Vj says:

        This one is my long time demand.. Yes you have lot of Study materials and are very good .And try to read as much as possible , I will put it in this . If Study materiel would have worked i think we need not need Schools and colleges . but one has to summerise it in a way that it helps ,just like a school and i am in LKG of Trading 😉

        Hope you come up with something like this ,

        And no matter what , Zerodha is the best ..Cheers and thanks for all the efforts .

      • S K Singh says:

        Thanks, Nithin. I will wait for your next move on mentoring. Don’t mind paying fees for that. Appreciate you taking time to respond to queries.

  10. Nagesh says:

    Very good initiative

  11. kirti says:

    yesss. Brilliant Products from Brilliant Minds..Cheers..

    Zerodha is the Best.

  12. Ashok Chudasama says:

    Hi Zerodha,
    You make a advance and very simple software of stock market which is anyone use it without technical guidance.
    Improve it more. Thanks.
    Ashok Chudasama.

    • Have you checked

      • anjali says:

        sir in pi chart pre.close and live price horizontal line and atp line can seen in pi next update thanks

      • Ravinder kumar says:

        Yes, I have checked both the platforms and they are both great. But there is a little problem I am facing with pi, as I am using this the most. Scale on the charts are not even, and by even means one bar 91.2 and the next is 91.9 and the nest one 92.6 and so forth, and this create big confusion about how much points you are up or down by looking at the chart itself. Even I meant like 90, 91, 92 and 93 on the scale. This would be really easy for traders to read. I have used 4 brokers and all use the even charts. And please add this feature of adding moving averages or any study for all in one. By that I mean, there are 12 charts and individually you can not add 2 moving averages, RSI MACD etc. So it would be best if we add all these studies all at once in every chart. Will save a lot and time. Quick order window is the excellent feature I have seen. it saves time and traders can easily catch a Breakout, I mean, I can with zerodha. But if you can add the feature of buy at the bid or sell at the ask in quick order window, that can save spread amount that we lose after getting in the trade.

        Thank you for reading.

        • siva says:

          1.For suppose a stock traded between 90 and 91 for the entire day then how to scale it, as scaling depends on time-frame used, zoom used and number of historical days selected.
          2.One can create a template and save it as default template by doing so it will ensure all charts will open with embedded indicators as in default template. Goto view->user setting-> chart settings to add saved template as a default template.
          3. By definition of Quick order it mean to execute the order quickly at available price, if one want to place a limit buy order at super speed at bid one can use f1 key with preset values for all other columns. To preset order columns goto view->user settings->order window and select accordingly.

  13. jafar says:

    dear Nitin,
    this is jafar from zerodha. I have a query i.e why there isn’t any option for Greek folio in zerodha pi or kite for option tradings.there is option calculator but Greek folio.if you incorporate Greek folio in any of this trading platform then it ll be great help and easier for us to to view current Delta Gamma Vega theta rather than going to option calculator which consumes time.

  14. Sankar says:

  23. Avinash Jawalkar says:

    Very good initiative & keep improving.Please get some active intraday/short term traders who are successful who can share their success for a reasonable fee, this will educate the traders who can become successful.This will only improve that persons style of trading & more trades can happen in that persons direction.Also Pi charting has to improve because it hangs sometimes.Is it possible to get real time charts?because the present charts are lagging.

  24. Himanshu says:

    How about some deep webinars on the topics covered in your Varsity material – fundamental/technical analysis ?

  25. Sophie says:

    Looking forward to all of this….

  26. Sivasubramani says:

  27. Amit Nanda says:

  28. anil says:

  29. mithil says:

    Hello Mr nitin ,
    Can u make zerodha Pi more Option friendly ?
    Like Live Option chain with greeks ? It will be more convenient .

    Thanks .

  30. PREETI SINGH says:

    Kite account does not indicate the script prices after market hours. Further, the P&L shown in app also misleads.

    Please look if the above can be rectified.


  31. Prasad says:


    I need info on below queries,

    1). How to analyse the markets and take decision on stocks.
    2). Strategies that we need to follow while trading.


  32. Koteshwar says:

    Thank you for good initiation.

  33. Santosh T Chankane says:

    We need inbuilt training videos & chat or messenger in your software. Using message, i can connect to discussed regarding trades.

  34. Chandrashekar says:

    Dear Nitin Sir,
    Please update Zerodha Kite web and Mobile application to find out imp upcoming events such as results etc so that traders can make use of it for their trading strategy. Pls give option to filter it out today’s highest gainer, losers, highest volume etc and parameters so that it can help us.

    Thank You.

  35. hemant ahire says:

    Sir please do same for common people in hindi language

  36. Ravi C says:

    Good initiative …..!!!!
    Happy to be part of Zerodha !!

  37. Curious Kid says:


  38. Umesh says:

    This is indeed a great step ..specially your plan to share all those webinars on youtube. People who cant attend the live webinar will be able to see them later. Thank you for great wok you are doing.

  39. Charan says:

    Hii nithin sir,
    Great job by zerodha. Small suggestion from my side. Can you make a shortcut key in pi to change stop loss to cost. It will save time.

  40. sridhar says:


    Does Zerodha publish Metals Inventory and cancelled warrants report daily at their site or at trading platform? if not, any plans of flashing those inventory news daily on our trading platform. Traders can make use of this opportunity to take some informed decisions based on the inventory report. Awaiting your reply please.


    • Hmm..we don’t really publish any reports. Our idea is to be an execution platform only.

      • sridhar says:

        Hi Nithin, Is it not worth a try (flashing daily metals inventory report) if that’s going to increase your business 😉 I am sure it will definitely add volume and create a value addition. To be frank, I was using Karvy comtrade before getting into Zerodha, where we used to get these reports daily when LME opens and it was very useful for us to trade in metals. Now, I am scratching my head for those reports to make my trades.

  41. Sourav Saha says:

    Please add 4 hourly chart. It is required for intraday trading. Currently in between hourly and daily chart no break up available.

  42. Abhijeet Torane says:

    Good initiative…. Thanks!

  43. Subhash says:

    Where I can send my feedback on the kite site i am using. I am facing problems in finding out the profits/loss i have made already.

  44. Dilip says:

    I have been admiring on the proactive initiatives taken by Zerodha to keep it competitors sweating.

    Nitin: We desperately want Net Option greeks on the positions taken. This is doable and also provided by many brokers like Sharekhan etc.
    This will help us for follow up actions required whenever the position swings to one side.


  45. Parag says:

    Great initiative. Keep it up.

    I find the UI of Kite amazing. Kudos to your team.

    A small irritation is that my Views in Kite do not work properly. i.e. I am not able to create multiple different views, or modify existing views. Hopefully this will get addressed soon.


  46. Parag says:

    Another small suggestion –

    When I purchase an Eq using Bracket Order, and if the quantity gets split into multiple lots, if I have to change the SL, I have to repeat the action for each of the lot. Is there a way to do it at one go for all the lots?

    The Exit option works for all the lots, but the modify one does not.


    • rams says:

      yes same thing i felt… i think this can be definetly implementable by zerodha. this is one of the biggest pain points….recently i have to modify 10 such lots… by the time i modify scrip moves against the trade

    • This is a technical challenge. Brackets at the back end is supported by our EMS vendors Thomson Reuters. We have been pushing them to find a work around for this.

  47. Bhumit says:

    how about the IPO features on Zerodha.

  48. Tarundeep says:

    The key issue is spoting trading opportunites. Zerodha should work in this direction as well. Thanks and best wishes.

  49. Jaswant Singh Malhotra says:

    Technical analysis using various charts for trading should be included in the webinars. The importance and use of all the charts available on kite portal should be explained one by one.
    God bless the initiative taken by Zerodha. Thanks.

  50. suresh says:


    The platform is the best i have seen so far.. The Kite software works seamlessly in both the web and the mobile version. i am a very happy and have nothing to complain about.. This is brilliant execution. I saw smallcases today and it is a very good idea. All good. Kudos guys for designing and bringing a cool product into the market at a very affordable cost and superior quality. Any plans of including the IPO section ? Only for IPO i need to keep a seperate trading account with others.

    My rating is 5/5 for Zeroda…. I will 100% recommend it for all my friends, family and well wishers…

  51. Vasanth says:

    If possible pls conduct a session about your trading strategies(as a successful trader)..

  52. Vasanth says:

    Especially about the scalping..

  53. Mohit says:

    Hi Nithin, When can I apply for IPOs through Kite/Zerodha?

  54. ASHOK says:

    Sir is it possible get stop loss and market orders for stock options
    Thanks Zerodha for great initiative…

  55. Harmeet says:

    1. How do you plan to make pi more stable.

  56. swapan saha { PS5381 } says:

    Dear Nitinji
    Pl make a video how to use ” covered order ” & “braket order ” at the time of trading

  57. Ray DSouza says:

    PI trading platform does not seem to be very stable. For the slightest reason it stops responding. Then one has to go through the log in process all over again. This happens particularly during the following occasions
    a) During the morning period from around 0915 to about 0945.
    b) Evening period from about 1500 onwards. This is particularly irksome as it is impossible to close out positions or buy new positions during the last few minutes of trade.
    c) At various times when one wishes to see the stock holding position.
    I suspect the servers are unable to cope with the increasing loads. In contrast the iIFL trading platfrom TTE is completely stable and almost never crashes. In fact in frustration i often trade on TTE because PI stops responding and I am unable to place buy and sell orders.
    Please look into these issues and respond. I think Zerodha PI is otherwise an excellent platform for equity based trading.

    • Ray, are you running multiple trading platforms on the same system? Also what internet bandwidth do you get? Pi is resource hungry, if markets are volatile, it hogs even more. Make sure to use a powerful machine with good bandwidth.

  58. akhil says:

    Hi Nithin
    It would be highly useful if in Regular order also trailing stoploss order is present like in bracket order.
    It is like in regular order if we choose stoploss limit order along with trigger price , trailing price also should be included.
    It will help a lot for traders to get lot more profits.
    Trailing stoploss can beincluded as optional in SL order or a New type order along with remaining 4 in regular order.
    Good profits can be made if it is present.

  59. lawrence says:

    Am a newbie. Thanks for the initiative. Will be very much helpful. Let me go thru this and later will post more comments. Thanks for now.

  60. Avinash says:

    Will you send us the link in our mail. Or is it thru our account or via Kite.
    I would like to join the live webinar at 2pm today.

    Rajani Shetty

  62. Arpan says:

    Sir, Can we conduct webinar on Position Sizing and Money Management? Actually traders loose mostly because of improper position sizing and money management in stock market. So it would be nice if Zerodha conduct any webinar on it.

    Can we have any platform for paper trading like Nse Pathshala? But with live prices.

    Is it possible to add Marketwatch like details in Kite (Upper circuit – Lower circuit limit of a script or option)

    Thank you
