Comment on Pi - Final Beta Release

Yogesh, yes it is possible, check this.

Especially on an opening like today, there might be hundreds of ticks every second first few minutes in the morning. The marketwatch or the chart, can’t capture both. Typically most trading platforms in India use charts after the price is shown on the marketwatch and hence the charts usually lag by a fraction of a second. To ensure that this doesn’t happen on Pi, we are streaming data separately to marketwatch and chart, this means additional costs as we need to have multiple streaming servers.

Since our setup is like this, it is possible that all ticks on your marketwatch and charts may not match. Especially when markets are volatile.
