1) Although Kite Connect APIs are not really meant for automated trading, if you secure the necessary exchange approvals, this is possible.
2) The live WebSocket API streams one tick per second.
3) We have not set a hard limit as of now and will review usage on a case-by-case basis.
4) Latency is unpredictable as it’s an HTTP API offered over the internet (numerous factors in play resulting in several hundred milliseconds). The API is definitely not meant for any sort of latency-sensitive execution.
5) For low latency data, you’ll have to get co-located at an exchange and get quotes directly off exchange leased lines.
