Comment on Z5 - Intro to our HTML5 Trading Platform

Hanan commented on 06 Aug 2015, 03:23 PM

All modern browsers will stop supporting Java very soon if they haven’t already. This means that you have to use a html5 trading platform which is safer and faster than Java. I’ve enabled Kite on your ID so you can just go to http://kite.zerodha.com and login to trade.

Kite has some really cool features and is very easy to use.

A few pointers for you:
1. Any browser, any operating system. 🙂
2. Only NSE/NFO/CDS live for now – more exchanges coming soon!
3. Dashboard View: https://kite.zerodha.com/dashboard/
4. Omnisearch box – just start typing the symbol name to add scrips to your market watch. Examples:
nse eq icic
nifty jul fut
nifty opt ce 8500
opt bank nif aug

Shortcut Key Function
` (key above tab) puts your cursor in the omnisearch box
b buy
s sell
d view/hide market depth window
c or enter view chart for that scrip
delete remove scrip
up arrow move up in your market watch
down arrow move down in your market watch

Ideally, you should be able to do everything without touching the mouse. If you want indicators and all, click on advanced charting. You can open multiple browser windows with the same login. And guess what, the same browser adapts to mobile screens. You can trade on your mobiles also.
