Comment on Zerodha Trader - Brief

Rohit Saraf commented on 26 Apr 2014, 09:05 AM

Hi Nithin

I want to try out the linux/max version of zerodha trader (regardless of instability), if possible. Can you please point me to that.

Is AlgoZ available in the linux/mac version? If not, is there any way or any api that I can use for the same.
Is there any API that would help me trade from the mac/linux platform.

Regarding the Z5 interface, i would like to give a few inputs/complaints.
– It logs out silently and you only get to know that when you place an order.
– The reordering of columns in TradeBook and OrderBook etc is not preserved across logins.
– It does not allow setting a default order type. Like for example, the order type is Normal for equities and you always need to change it. I think there should be an option to set default types per segment.

Some other features I would like to see in Z5:
– Charting; Along with intraday charts, an option to see charts of longer intervals.
– PnL tracking. The back office software is super-bad. (and Opens only in IE! )
– An optional feature to show some technical indicators in the chart as well. (not sure how expensive that would be though).

That said, it is a very nice interface, much better than others. Please let me know if there are any api’s to get data or trade that you can provide.
