Comment on Opentrade - learn following star traders

Souvik commented on 28 Mar 2016, 10:13 AM

First Live experience with Opentrade – I subscribed to 2 stars last week. Today was the first time I was to receive notifications of trades. Unfortunately, the experience till now is not very convincing.

One star subscribed is a day trader and frequently enters and exit trades. First, there is absolutely no info on the usual timeframe of trades of the stars in the star profile page, so I ended up selecting a star whose trading style is very difficult to follow given the frequency of his trades and short timeframes. Something needs to be done about this. More info on trading style and a short anonymous bio of the stars focusing on trading style will help a lot.

Second, to top this the sms and email updates functionality is broken. Its not sending notifications on time. I got the entry sms for the first trade on time but got the exit sms 25 mins after the trade was exited. The next entry message was 10 mins late. The exit message of this 2nd trade is yet to come while the trader is now on his 3rd trade :).

I am sure these are early hiccups and the Zerodha team will improve the tool but a lot of caution is needed before the tool can be trusted.
