Introducing 20 depth or level 3 data on Kite

Hindi: इस पोस्ट को हिंदी में पढ़ने के लिए यहाँ क्लिक करें।

Over the many years trading and interacting with traders, I have constantly heard complaints that institutions have a big edge over retail traders due to lower trading costs, better platforms, and access to level 3 data. With our technology, and with our partner startups through the Rainmatter initiative, we have not only bridged this gap but have given retail traders an edge over institutions with better products and pricing. In the same spirit of democratisation, I am super excited to let you all know that we are now ready to give you all access to level 3 or 20 depth market data for the first time in India, probably the world.

What is level 3 or 20 depth? 

Normally when you check the market depth for any scrip, you see the best 5 bids and offers, this is also called level 2 data.

Level 2 data

Level 3 or 20 depth is the market depth with 20 bids and offers. 


Level 3 data (20 depth)

How are we bringing this to you? 

The normal data feed that you see on the trading platforms is provided to the brokerage firm by the exchange which is then streamed to the clients. The default is 5 market depth which typically updates up to 3 times a second. We are fortunate that Indian exchanges give data feed for free for trading clients of their members unlike in developed markets where end clients have to pay for it.  

Many exchanges also have premium data feed called Tick by Tick (TBT). As the name suggests, this data stream gives you every single change in the price of bid/ask and all trades on a scrip. This data stream as you would imagine needs exponentially more bandwidth to stream out of the exchanges, which is not technologically feasible. So exchanges have created a space within their premises (called the “colo” for colocation) where they share this data feed with participants who lease servers. Being in the colo also means faster updates on the data feed. Until now, large institutions, brokerage firms who trade high-frequency arbitrage, market making and other such latency-sensitive strategies using algorithms were the ones consuming this data feed.

Our new system sits within the exchange colo and consumes large volumes of real-time TBT data, converts it into 20 depth for retail consumption, compresses the data, streams it to our data center over a dedicated leased line, from where it is streamed to Kite to our users.

How is this useful? 

This adds significant value to active traders or those who intend to trade large quantities by giving them insights that is not available on the standard, limited market depth view. Knowing where the most number of bids and asks are placed incrementally across 20 depths as compared to 5 can be a trading edge. Access to 20 depth can also help reduce impact costs on large orders. And of course, level 3 feeds tick faster and deliver more quotes. 

Check this example of Yes Bank 70 Calls when the stock moved 30% and trading activity spiked. With 20 depth you can see the demand and supply almost across the entire price range of the calls. You can not only figure where potentially there could be support and resistance on the price due to higher bids/asks, but also get an estimate of the price at which your larger orders could get executed. 

Yes Bank November 70 CE

Check out this chapter on Varsity where Karthik explains how to use the 20-depth to your benefit.

How do I access it? 

For the beta launch, we are opening this up only to our active trading clients; those who have generated over Rs 100 in brokerage in the last 4 weeks.  We will keep updating this list every 3 days and expand the beta program. 20 depth is now available for everyone by default. In addition, it is only available for NSE scrips (Stocks, and F&O). As you can imagine, this system is technologically complex and resource and bandwidth-intensive for us, and hence will be a part of our upcoming bundle of premium features. For now, it’s available as a free preview.

While we’ve been building tools and features to help our users with an edge when trading, we have also been working on building a system that actively aids traders do smarter risk management and build discipline. Stay tuned.

Happy Trading,

    Fantastic as usual n way ahead than others …congratulations Nithin sir & zerodha team ..👍

  2. Captain Jacksparrow says:

    This is awesome and Zerodha is the best.

    • Bandar Singh says:

      This is by no means to demoralise Zerodha. It may be useful for other people I don’t know. But from what I observed I tried using it today – this depth details only lead to confusion and made me avoid a trade because I saw a heavy sell order at a certain point. However the moment the share traded closer to that price, that sell order disappeared. Usually institutional investors don’t keep orders pending. In fact even retail traders put Buy SL orders and they are not immediately visible on the market depth. It probably was some retailer or stock manipulating cartel that keeps shifting orders as prices move closer to that level. I don’t know how it works for others but I found that this isn’t really so much of a help while trading in stocks unless you’re a really big trader who can scoop up all pending orders in no time. I thought it might have been an exception with that share only and tried a Sell SL on another share just below where there was a huge buy order pending. However the sell order executed and then bounced even though the buy orders below that were of very low quantities. My SL got hit.

  51. GURPREET SINGH says:


  52. krishnaDevathi says:

    Simple feature that is not available elsewhere. Awesome thought to provide free feed to all users. Thanks to Zerodha

  53. Hari Krishna says:

    Great Feature @Nithin & Team.

    Meanwhile, the basic feature of “instant withdrawal” & remittance to bank accounts will be a great value-add; as well in beating out the existing market players like ICICI direct, while this will dramatically help customers too.

  54. Deepak Singh says:

    Thats absolutely fantastic. Thanks for providing this. Great work!

  55. Chaitenya Yadav says:

    Congratulation Nitin and Zerodha team.

    Can I request you to introduce ‘Trade through Chart’ feature. Drag and drop price line should popup modification window to modify the order. It should also have the current profit and exit option.

    Thanks a lot.

    Best regards,

  56. RAJU KANUNGA says:

  57. Marimuthu says:

    Excellent ,Nithin Made wonder job for traders felling ,,,,,,, best hard work the team

  58. Rafique Rajput says:

    Awesome. Zerodha is alway best and first to introduce the latest technology.

  59. Kartikbhai says:

    Another First from Zerodha, Wow.

    I always had a doubt, that

    (a) Do large brokerages have access to this information of ‘placed orders’ at Level-3 ?

    (b) Do large brokerage platforms see more info of the order than retail trader ? eg when an order is placed for 3N quantity , but Display Qty is punched as N , then do some large broker platform see the total actual qty of 3N or only N can be seen ?

    Can someone from Zerodha help to answer these query,


    • 1. Like I have mentioned in the post, tick by tick data has been available as a premium feed from exchange for a long time. Anyone who could afford it can subscribe to it, not just brokerage firms.
      2. No, brokerage firms see exactly what you see in the market depth.

  60. Mohammed salim says:

    This is first initiative taken by zerodha for retail investor to put ahead and fight with institutional.

  61. pradip patra says:

    i want to clear and smooth chart….and watch list more than 50 stock in a row

  62. Giridhar Isukapalli says:

    Well, i am not well versed with Trading Jargon, but i can certainly see the potential benefits which we can reap in.
    Zerodha is the Best.

    Kudos Nithin & team !!

  63. Pawan Yadav says:

    Good work congratulations.. zerodha team

  64. Jashanjeet Singh says:

    Wow. Thanks a lot man. I love companies that provide value even when they’re ahead of the curve already. Thank you.

  65. Avinash Jawalkar says:

    Excellent addition for traders.Zerodha should also add PCR ,IV,& OI in graphical form & also change in OI tick by tick.Hopefully we can see this soon.

  66. soma korimi says:

    Great initiative by Zerodha Keep rocking.
    I believe Zerodha hava association with currently datafeed permonth is very high, See if Zerodha can directly give us the datafeed with reasonable pricing.

  67. Ramesh says:

    Yet another Global benchmark standard set by ZERODHA platform. Greater Transparency for active traders to take maximum benefit out of it with no additional cost due to level3 implementation. Great job Nithin.

  68. Tushar Pathare says:

    Thanks team Zerodha for you efforts to make trading easy and profitable.

  69. ankur gupta says:

    not showing in the mobile app…

  70. neeraj says:

    Good feature. But 20 depth with Rs. 0.05 for every entry in that bid/offer list means Rs.2 deep which is not very useful. IMHO it does not make much of a difference.

    If you are planning to offer it as a premium feature in future (with price to be paid by the user), then I would suggest (subject to technical feasibility) grouping all the bid counts in Rs.1 (i.e., like for e.g. 11870.05 to 11870.95 for nifty) and show the total bid and offer count for that range. This would be more useful for us as we will come to know a much greater depth of Rs.20. This would enable us to find the nearby support and resistances much better.


    • Rajamohan says:

      Neeraj, valid point, it will be nice if it cover the day full price range

      • neeraj says:

        Agree with u. That should be the ultimate goal. For that, the group size should be adjustable by the user , like Rs.5 or Rs.10 instead of Rs.1, which I mentioned earlier. Otherwise the list will be too long.

  71. Ravi Raghavan says:

    mr kamath congrats for your new achievement , kindly look into streak software for which you dont have any tele support for this which impact many trader not to participate, for which your software is not able to use by many trader, kindly look into it, i have already wrote a comment ,email but you people dont bother , what is the use of this software and a huge investment,

    Rest all kudos to you guys are doing excellent job.

  82. Aithal says:

    I have been wondering why market depth was limited to 5.
    Now, this one is really cool feature Zerodha added!
    Thanks much.

  83. Nagarajan says:

    This is excellent. Meanwhile, if include the Session wise volume profile indicator that would be best forever.

  84. Raghavendra says:

    Awesome feature.
    You are doing excellent job of empowering retail traders, unleashing competition and leaving far behind all the brokerages, same as what Mukesh Ambani did with Jio to other telecom operators.
    Also regarding the premium for this feature, I hope you will offer it a very reasonable price as you always keep in mind the retail traders benefit.

    Keep doing more good things.

  136. rayadu sunkara says:

    i am not able to get in my account , please what happened?

  137. Ameet says:

    Level 2 also shows quite a lot of market depth especially when you look at INTERACTIVE TRADERS ( BBT) platform, but it is a PAID platform..also on SPEED TRADER platform ( all these are for those who trade American markets) active traders we are getting it for free. That is a plus for sure..always useful to see if there are big bidders or offers for stocks in play..big bids means sell and big offers means buy for traders..sounds counterintuitive but that is how it plays out.

  138. Rakesh Pipara says:

    Great Sir Thanks
    Please Provide Tick Data On Chart

  139. Bipin goyani says:

    How to know 20 depths in application??

    This is great,
    But i requested to you that please provide this to all zerodha user ,even those who did not met your last 4 week brokerage condition.
    So that every retail trader get benefit from it and please provide this feature in zerodha kite android app also.

    • Matti says:

      This is only restricted in the beta period. Soon, we’ll open this up to all our users as part of our upcoming packaged subscription plans.

  156. Shailesh says:

    Great work. Hope with colo servers, we could also get higher number of ticks [around 40-50] per second. May be even a paid service.

    • Faisal says:

      We plan to display LTP from colo TBT data too, however, it is not possible to broadcast 40-50 ticks per second to a normal computer or mobile 🙂

  157. Sumit mittal says:

    1 request also please provide some screener also that should have some basic feature like top gainer ,looser, active stocks volume gainer also these helps a day trader. Thank you

  158. Badri says:

    Will this be available in pi

  159. Bhaskar says:

    Hi Kamath,
    One more suggestion…
    While adding scripts to Market watch, we could able to select only one script at a time, If you provide option for selecting multiple then it will be really great value addition.
    Ex.. Banknifty Option CE /PE for multiple strike prices

  160. Hariprasath Gopal says:

    Probably the best way to fake amateurs by seeing the market depth. Now more losers are going to be in the market.

  161. Subramanya Bharadwaj says:

    Hello Team..
    Extended market depth is a excellent and premium feature..
    Thanks you very much for the same…

    Will it also be available in Commodity in near future?

  179. ANIL BHUTADA says:

    Excellent. Contineous technical upgradation is must .
    congratulations to entire Zerodha team.
    One more feature that we need is , during intraday total value of all trades should be given.

  180. A SRINIVASA says:

    Technical Chart in not working fast using Zerodha kite on laptop os10

  181. A SRINIVASA says:

  183. Avinash Singare says:

    Thank u nitin sir

  184. Fayazuddin says:

    Congratulations! to you and your team for bringing this feature to us. This will definitely hell us to improve our strategies. Keep trading.

  185. Manish says:

    This is an excellent initiative and another first by Zerodha! So kudos to Nithin and team!!!
    Nithin, i just have one niggling problem when trying to use market depth for the uses you have mentioned in the article… which is that most large order quantities are hidden through the “Disclosed Qty” feature… So the market depth is not so reliable as it may seem… So even in the Level 3 data, the real order sizes will continue to be hidden through Disclosed Qty?

    • Faisal says:


      Yes, there is no solution to finding disclosed quantity orders as it is an exchanged offered feature. L3 data can still be useful to you in many ways in determining the number of orders, the median of buy and sell prices, etc.

  186. sahil says:

    Really appreciable 🙂

    one more thing please provide feature like metatrader where we can analyse thousands of stocks using right click.

  187. Nagarajan says:

    It is super, if fix buy & sell button (M, LM, SL, SLM, and normal / MIS) without pop that will be wonder to order in same web chart’s screen

  188. Kiran Gopinath says:

    Will this be available for MCX trading? I wish to get hands-on this. Exciting!!

  189. Rahul says:

  191. Mehul Chheda says:

    First improve required section after that add additional options sir.
    Price sequence also coming slow. Plz update .

    • R Dhanasekaran says:

      Loading of price quotes are slow when compared to charts many times. I request to make these basic things faster and robust before keep on adding features. Please make the basic platform stronger and robust. Features are welcome and can wait. Thanks Zerodha for the all efforts.

  199. Mark DMello says:

    Excellent news and we’ll done. A Huge Thanks to the entire Zerodha team for this. Keep up the great work. Best wishes…

  200. Laxman says:

    Fantastic……it s help full more accurate trade

  205. Pradeep says:

    Great work with this initiative !!!
    Can you also include Market Profile charts on kite. I’m an active trader at Zerodha and I would like to club this 20 depth with Market Profile charts. This would be a killer combination. Hoping for Market Profile charts on Kite for a very long time. When could this happen

    • Anil Palan says:

      I agree with Pradeep’s view and request Nithin and his Team to arrange for Market Profile Charts at the earliest.

  206. JIGAR says:

    Thank you Zerodha, no such trader is providing this facility in India yet, I have only been connected for 5 days but I will get a lot from this future.

  207. Anil Palan says:

    Thanks Nithin & Team for your great efforts. This would definitely give Investors like me an edge in trading confidently.
    In the past with just five quotes I had to wait for a long period of time to find no. of buyers/sellers and quantity asked/offered near the round figures of a Quote. This change will give me an idea of no. bids/offers near a round numbered price.

    Once again thanks to You and your Team for all the efforts.

  208. joyprakash das says:

    Thanks Zerodha You proved again that India’s number 1 brokerage company. Thank you.

  227. neha jadav says:


  228. Mayur Wadke says:

    Hello Sir,
    I would like to suggest you, Please increase our margin limit like 20X for intraday and 10X for delivery in equity cash. I think this suggestion is very useful for all traders. Thank you…

    • Faisal says:

      Intraday margins limits are set based on a range of factors including stock and index volatility, impact cost, etc. We believe we offer reasonable leverage using BO/CO/MIS.
      We have been working on offering margin funding on delivery trades too:)

  229. chandrasekhar says:

    Nithin sir, yo are truly inspirational, Thank you

  230. Ganesh Bhat says:

  234. Lalit says:

  235. Vinod Kedare says:


  236. sumit says:

    Thanks for the new update. I have just one request to improve the charting experience. It seems the candlestick pattern sometimes does not show the accurate values. You have to refresh multiple times to get the actual highs and lows.

  237. T NARASIMHULU says:

  238. Gajanan Landge says:

    Hi NITIN,

    This is most important think form trader Point of View…..
    Very Like,
    One More Request to you also Trying to Option Chain Live Feed in ZERODHA terminal…………..
    thats very IMP……………


  239. Subramaniam Rajan says:

    Of course this is wonderful information for retail investors – Subject to how to interpret this information for their trades . In real time, from this information, Institutions may lead retailers to enter into trade thru their dummy limit orders. Be aware and don’t blindly rely on those information. And also still market orders of institutions still invisible as quick update in market depth panel.

  240. LOKESH WANJARI says:

    Sir!! Just Awesome.

  241. Mona says:

    Hi, Nitin
    Now, you have stopped NEST trader. But, spread window is available in this software only and not in kite or pi. This NEST was useful to traders having large F&O position which needs to be rollover using spread window. Kindly introduce spread order window in kite or pi as it will be very difficult to rollover large quantities without spread order window.

  242. Amit Tiwari says:

    Excellent feature. I was longing for this kind of data from a very long time. I have many more ideas which if implemented will give useful information to traders.

  243. malek says:

    thanks zerodh for use full research

  244. Ameya Vaidya says:

    Hi team Zerodha!

    Yet another addition to the features offered. Great going!


  245. CHANDRA MOHAN says:

    Nice addition, but we are working person. So not possible to access. if available on mobile app, would be good for us.

  246. Jai says:

    Where can I see prints (time and sale) for each transaction?
    Is it available in any Indian platform?
    If anyone knows kindly answer.

  247. Vikram says:

    Congrats !!! This is an excellent feature to be made available for retail clients. But Nitin sir kindly confirm if this is available for API data feed access too or its just for web at the moment.

  248. aditya says:

    Dear Nithin Sir,
    This is great initiative to give retail trader similar platform as institutional trader which was like a drem come true!.
    I have a small suggestion that is it possible to do total of this 20 bid/ask quantities by the total number of orders??
    This will give simple average of number of quantity by each order signalling where is the smart money ?

  249. aditya says:

  251. raghuveer says:

  256. Som says:

    This feature only enabled for users generating Rs100 revenue in last 4 weeks.

    What about traders who only do swing trades and no brokerage on those?

    How are they going to avail this feature even if they are very active?

  257. Gitesh Raja says:

    Hello, great news. Will this be available on Pi (laptop)? Thanks.

  258. Alok Urs says:

    Congrats Nitin Sir. It would now definitely help me now to trade actively….. i am going to restart my trading step by step… You and your team are always first in many things you have introduced to retail and small investors or day traders. It is a happy moment for me and others who are aligned to your institution.

  259. N S V IYENGAR says:

    Sir, HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS! It is very good and we all will enjoy. Can you please add this in Zerodha varsity explains step by step how to use deep 20 for profitable trade.
    Best regards

  260. Suresh M Dhamsania says:

    Congratulations and Thank you Nithin, this is great data info for retails

  261. Harikrishna Munagapati says:

    Great feature that retail traders have been waiting for a long time. This is very useful for day traders for scalping.

    As a follow up, it would be helpful if Zerodha can also provide Time and Sales window/indicator that is based on depth of market or level 3. The Time and Sales window prints a day’s executed orders along with timestamp. This is very useful for intraday scalping.

    Many prop trading firms as well as several day traders in the US use level 3 along with Time and Sales window for trading. This technique is known as Tape Reading. Almost all trading platforms in the U.S. including Interactive Brokers, TD Ameritrade, E-Signal, etc provide this useful feature.

    Look forward to this indicator from Zerodha.

  262. Lunaram Raika says:


  263. Deepak Singh says:

    Owsm sir,
    Kindly show rate change with %change and 52 week high/low.

  264. Bhagya says:

    This is a good feature to trader…But why zerodha is late to introduce BO for MCX segment? Here i feel other brokers have edge over zerodha and many traders are opting other brokers for MCX market trades..

  265. TRG says:

    Great.. zerodha also look to give freebies in terms of Free Sensibull pro, streak full features etc to clients who give brokerage above some threshold per month or per quarter. Look into this also.

  266. U 👉👤 says:

    Good zerodha platform good service

  267. Vinay says:

    This is amazing. I am eager to see this in zerodha kite app soon.

  268. Amar khade says:


  269. Jamanadas Patadia says:

    Great to take leadership. Many congratulations, Nithin. Keep it up. Regards, J. R. Patadia.

  270. Ratnesh Chandra Dixit says:

    Welcome for the Amazing will be beneficial for all zerodha members..thanks to Nitin sir.

  271. Vipin says:

    Fyers is providing this facility from long time, also free of cost without any conditions and you are showing you are just first broker in India, just improve service first and then become good broker. Your services are just pathetic nothing else.

  272. Gangadhar Humraskar says:

    I can’t see market depth order in my zerodha kite Web platform. As it promise from you. I am a active trader and investor. For trading there are other platforms and vendors too who provide level 3 data. As it is free preview I wanted to see in my account but can’t see. Do sumthing about it. In USA it’s totally free. I have written to your support but there is no reply from you. When you launch it in premium I will be the first who will subscribe.
    Thanking you.

  273. Dev says:

    Superb….also get trade from chart ….like fyres …it really gets easy and convenient for traders to trail stops …

    A lot of thanks for your hard work and really very good news for retail traders.
    Please keep up and God bless.

  279. Mihir says:

    There is no free preview – you are opening your 20 depth bid/ask data only to people who pay min 100 in last 4 weeks. People who do large volume of transactions are penalized. Either you stop showing that it is free preview or offer to every user. very simple.

  280. PARESH Joshi says:

    It’s very useful level 3 data for retail investors.Great done by ZERODHA !!!

  281. ganta.s says:

    Yesbank’s 20 depth data struck since one hour showing same since 1030am.

  282. AMIT SHUKLA says:

  287. Borra Ravindra Babu says:

    very useful option given. its too good its also available in commodities.

  288. Borra Ravindra Babu says:

    very useful option given. its too good its also available in commodities. it helps more if it give for small inverters who are not active traders to generate Rs.100 brokerage.

  289. Meiazahan says:

  291. Murali says:

    I do not see we can do any inference with this option, tested today with couple of stocks, as volumes constantly changes on each price, neither it gives any idea of support or resistance as per my observation, but i still appreciate Zerodha for creating new tools

  292. Archana Ramesh says:

    Very useful facility to ease the user.
    Also, kindly in option market watch the scripts like PE or CE will not come serially as we saved eg. 27000, 27500, 28000…., the next day opening this will jumble with PE 27000, CE29000, PE 28000 … these are very confusing while while watching market. I already informed to technical team. kindly rectify the same.
    Also the restricted 5 marketwatch limit may be increase to 10 in option Index in PI platform/Kite etc.
    Thank you

  293. Roy says:

    Great work Nithin and Team Zerodha. You guys continue to amaze.
    Now that Pi is out in the world how about a desktop version of Kite ?

  294. chandrahas chauhan says:

    Given all trades happen in the same account, like intra day trading, swing trading and delivery trades (for investment).
    It would be good if you can provide the option of having different dashboards for trading and delivery trades.

    • Matti says:

      Hi. Check out the “Fundamentals” widget on Kite. It already has the 52 week high and low along with some more information.

  342. Sakrayya raichur says:

    Please update to 20 depth or 3 level

  343. US. Aditya Barman Ray says:

  344. Vasudev Kamath says:

    We have submitted account opening form online, it is rejected as mobile number was associated with another account, now we changed it. But your team tells we need to manually open account now and online signup not possible. Can you please check. None of your team members contacted for application rejections nor we received any email. I only came to know when I called your office after 3 days. This is not good customer service.

  345. Sneha says:

    Is team zerodha is working on the Executed orders for improvements? Can it add feture like LTP on executed orders??

  346. Dhaval says:

  348. Vinod Salian says:

    Good Work

  349. Ravi Kolathur says:

    As always, much ahead of competition! Way to go, and way to be!!


    Dear Sir,

    This is a good one.

    Also, implement this in MCX also.

  351. New User says:

    This is no good without the tape of LTPs and without tape this is not level III. Also I’m not able to see this option on my Kite. Kite charts hang after sometime and won’t update. Placing order on kite takes so much time, atleast 3-4 seconds. You should have allowed traders to use NSE platform. Also Pi says chart sql error and some .net mismatch and is totally unusable. Even Pi has some delays and not very snappy. So I’m stuck with bunch of broken trading tools. Hope you will fix them someday.

    • New User says:

      And few more suggestions if you don’t mind (all on kite browser pc). When I pin LTP of an instrument to top-left list, there is no way to unpin that. There should be a way to configure the indices list on that. Also there is no way on the browser to see the current index prices of banknifty and others.

      For keyboard shortcuts, there is no way to configure them, it should be +/F1 and -/F2 for buy and sell not B and S which is in opposite directions. And even B and S doesn’t work, I had 3 instruments and the last one is got highlighted for keyboard shortcuts, no way to change that.

      Also switching from chart and order list is very difficult. Chart to order list is fast, but order-list to chart sometimes takes 10s to load. This is on trading view which I prefer to chart IQ. Other than this, kite browser platform is good. Today is my first day on your platform. Fingers crossed.

      • Matti says:

        Hi! Can you give me some more clarity on what you’re saying about the pinned indices? We haven’t added an un-pin option because they’re just two items and pinning something else just replaces whatever was previously pinned.
        We’ve assigned B & S as keyboard shortcuts because that’s simply more intuitive. Easier to remember ‘B’ for Buy than F1 for buy.
        You can change the highlighted scrip in the marketwatch using arrow keys. 🙂

  352. rohit bopche says:

    can we expect this level 3 service available for MCX scripts also in the near future?

  353. Samar says:

    Kanath you are a visionary in trying to understand this stock market science.

    This seems to be a v useful feature and you are right it will take some time for non institutional traders to understand the usefulness.

  354. arjun says:

    add bajaj finance

  355. santosh says:

    Thank you Nithin sir for updating this information and which will really helpful to retail investors.
    can you add one more feature that is order from chart like other website fyer. this is helpful to catch the price that we want

  356. Prabhu says:

    i dont see the option, is it deactivated?

  357. hi says:

    You can change the highlighted scrip in the marketwatch using arrow keys. 🙂

  358. Vikash says:

    Good feature for whoever uses this. However I feel a trading ladder should be offered with the ability to view traded quantity at a price and standing bids/offers in RT, this not only shows market depth but other important information as well.

    Some of the charting tools I would like on kite are
    1. Trading from the chart
    2. Volume based indicators like volume delta and Volume profile (with buy x sell information)
    3. Market profile
    4. Time independent range bars with volume (range bars should never be time dependent) – emphasis on range
    5. Time independent renko bars with volume (renko bars should never be time dependent) – emphasis on brick size
    6. Time independent fixed volume candles (just like range bars but instead of price range as input these have fixed volume as input) – emphasis on volume
    7. Order flow charts

    These are some of the tools I used as a prop trader on various platforms, if these tools are available to the retail investor then they will better equipped to make a decision.

    Personally I would pay a premium for the above mentioned features and a lot of my trading colleagues would also be willing to do the same but I don’t think I will be comfortable doing the same for the level 3 depth feature. Interesting thing is exchange provides the data that is required to calculate and show these on the chart RT.

    RT= Real Time

    • Vikash says:

      All the bars should have the ability for custom intervals, we do not have custom intervals for time also, this has to be a priority feature that needs to be included in the future releases. Why restrict the traders? Give them full independence and freedom to explore and choose their own set of parameters.

  359. Sandeep Mehta says:

    Thanks for keep spreading and sharing ur excellence with us.

  360. Abhishek says:

    Sir, I have not show this 20 Depth.

  361. Khushal says:

    Why I can not see the level 3 depth, Even I have generated the required brokerage!
    Can anyone clarify that?

  362. njustus says:

    could not see 20 level data, i have generated more than 100 in brokerage, is there other way to enable it


  363. Pranay says:

    I have generated more than 100 Rs. brokerage in last 4 weeks, still unable to view level 3 data on kite web/app. How can I be able to view this?

  364. Adwait says:

    Very good feature and quite helpful at times, thanks to Zerodha team.

  365. Yeshwant Rao says:

    Sorry I’m posting a message unrelated to the 20 mkt depth.
    This is very simple request, which I have put forward several times over mail/phone with no positive solution.
    I use ADX/DMI family of indicators a lot. My simple request is that in Pi charts the colour of DI Minus should be Red. The Di Plus is Green already, which is correct. Only DI Minus in your system is in Blue instead of Red. There is no provision to change the colour too. In the mobile Kite you have given the correct colours (Red for DI – and Green DI+).
    This change of DI minus into Red would save me lot of time. I trade only in commodities and currencies.
    Thanks for your time.

  366. Vinod says:

    i dont see view 20 market depth

    • Matti says:

      Hey Vinod, this feature is currently only available to clients who have generated more than Rs. 100 in brokerage in the last 4 weeks, as the above post says. If you have recently crosse this threshold, you will start seeing the 20-depth soon.

  367. Deepak Kohli says:

    Not able to view 20 market depth, I have generated more than 100 Rs. brokerage in last 4 weeks

  368. Mahesh Todankar says:

    Gr8.. When this feature will be available for MCX commodities??

  369. Ashish says:

    Hi, when this feature can be made available on zerodha pi.

  370. malQ says:

    I hope this is the correct place to post this? wrt the OPTIONS dropdown on Kite-3, can the ADD and EXIT buttons be separated with some other functions? Second time now that an ADD became EXIT (small orders . . .) because of the fact that the buttons are right next to each other. Thanks.

  371. Rahul says:

    Great now we are seeing at level 3 data, my question is can we see how many contract are traded at a particular price , just how jigsaw displays it.


  372. saurabh says:

    Great. Much needed.
    Could you also provide upper circuit and lower circuit values on pop-out graph page like you alwasys show when someone see market depth.
    for eg on
    if you click that lighting sign icon and market depth page doesnt have lower and upper circuit information. please correct.

  373. Anisha says:

    Thanks A Lot to Zerodha Team for such Wonderful feature. Moreover, Zerodha is only platform where such feature is available.

    Nice Job !!

  374. BHAWANA DUTT says:

    Thanks Nithin,

    I noted the same today morning in Auropharma. Thanks for the service…

  375. Petric says:

    How about Commodity? Do we have this feature?

  376. Rajesh says:

    no use from this we can’t see real supply and demand in level 2 level 3 … why dont you guys provide level 1 data

    • Raandy says:

      You can get it by setting up colo servers at the exchange for which it will cost 18 lakhs+/annum.
      I hope that will be useful for you.

  377. Dinesh says:

    Thank you

  378. Narsimhareddy says:

    It’s extra guide lines for quick decision making

  379. Nishant says:

    Please add this feature for the currency derivatives segment as well.

  380. Veeru says:

    Pls add the CPR pivots like Trading view..

  381. naeem says:

    Nitin Sir, pls remove or reduce API cost for robo trades, as many brokers are nowadays giving free of cost.

  382. Raghunath avgan says:

    This 20 depth data not be shown to my kite app why this happens

    • Matti says:

      Hey Raghunath, we’ve enabled 20 depth for all our users on the mobile app as well as the web. Please ensure you have the latest version of the app to see it.

  383. Ravi says:

    What’s the plan for providing tick by tick data? As well as, can you provide export chart functionality from Kite?

    • Matti says:

      Hey Ravi, streaming tick-by-tick data over the internet isn’t really technically feasible, so this isn’t going to happen any time soon.

      • sampath says:

        why its not feasible? just store them in your server, send slowly as receiver receives it. you dont need to send to the client instantly.. few second delay is fine but he should be receiving the all trades(all ticks) in that second.

        • Matti says:

          There are MILLIONS of ticks per second. Even if we store them on our servers, streaming them could take a lot longer than you think! Especially in India, where the internet infrastructure isn’t great. We would rather provide fewer, but more realtime data to our customers than all ticks that are significantly delayed.

  384. Niraj says:

    It is good, is it available for MCX or not.
    As I trade in MCX. After my working hrs.

    Is there any chance to Increase working time of NSE like MCX till 11.55 in future.

    • Matti says:

      Hey Niraj, this is on our list of things to do, but will take time. As for market timings being extended, this is solely based on the exchange’s decision.

  385. Rohit Soni says:

  400. arun says:

    This feature is not working anymore.

  401. krishna sagar says:

    Hi Sir,
    I was thinking if prints could be added to 20 would give better insight to the trader.Kinly let me know if prints could be added to the level 3 data.

    • Krishna Sagar says:

      Prints show the buy orders and sell orders executed in a separate window.If bid orders are repeatedly printing with lower prices the stock price is coming down and vice versa.I think foreign brokerages show the trades executed in a separate window.Also called time and sales if i am not mistaken.

  402. Saish says:

    Dear Sir, but top 20 ask bid qty still not available in kite connect API, please look into it. thanks.

  403. Dheeraj G K says:

    Mr. Nithin,

    Market depth 20 is a great feature and is really helpful. Can you also add features like time and sale like just price, qty & time . It would be very helpful to track the volatility

    Hope you must be aware of by this time

    • Shubham says:

      Hi Subhash, there seems to be an issue with 20 depth for some scrips. We’re working on fixing this. Please check the 5 depth for now. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
