Quant – Sabermetric approach to trading

September 22, 2014


One of the best ways to improve your probability of winning while trading is by learning from your own trading history. Like they say, ”those who forget the history, are most likely going to repeat it”, a mistake often committed by traders. This could be either because of no access to tools/technology or not knowing the importance of learning from your past. We at Zerodha understand this, and that’s why we’re launching Quant, a financial behavioural analysis and visualisation tool. Q, our new backoffice, is a very intuitive reporting tool, but it’s mostly for contract notes, P&L statements, Trade/Order Books. Quant ups the ante and crunches your trading history and extracts useful insights for you to learn.

Quant, as the name suggests, will help you perform quantitative analysis of your trading past and also introduce you to a sabermetric approach to trading. Quant algos will go back in your trading history and intuitively depict things like, what was your trading size at which you made most profits, any pattern with time in terms of your profitability, did you make profit by trading with the trend or against, your most profitable scrips, and a lot more.

The first release of Quant will comprise of “Time based analytics” to help spot any trends in terms of your profitability based on when you trade, and “Portfolio Equity Curve” to help measure your stock holding performance against the benchmark (Nifty). Do note that all the figures are on gross basis (excluding brokerage and other costs).

You can start off either visiting http://quant.zerodha.com/ or by clicking on Quant when logged into Q.

Time based analytics

Weekday overview

Tells you the best weekday for you in terms of gross profits made. You can either use the periods available already or mention a custom date range. For instance, you can see that this particular account has taken the biggest hit on a Tuesday.


Weekday Overview

The segment and symbol box will help you further refine to view the same analytics for a particular segment or symbol that you have traded.


Adding Segments and symbols

Weekday breakdown

Shows your best weekday in terms of gross profitable weekdays to total number of weekdays traded. This will also help you figure out your chances of winning on expiry days while trading Equity derivatives and Currency.


Weekday breakdown

The green line indicates the week whereas the rest are days. Clicking on each of the days will add on to the scatter plot to help you better visualize the number of times you have traded on a particular weekday and how many of those have been winners. As you can see above that this client has been most profitable on Expiry days and Fridays, with an almost 75% probability of winning. You can use the smaller graph below to zoom in or out of a particular time period.

Weekly overview

Similar to weekday overview, this will help you figure out which part of the month you are most profitable, 4th and 5th week being the last weeks of the month. This particular client has been most profitable during the 3rd and 4th weeks of the month while the second week being the worst.


Weekly Overview


Visualize your gross profit and loss either daily, weekly, monthly or yearly




Shows you what has been your maximum consecutive profit or loss making days. You will be also able to see your current and average winning/losing streaks.



Important to know

  • The above reports may not match to your normal P&L because the profitability is calculated per day and not for a time period in your normal P&L statements.
  • All the reports above are on a gross basis, it doesn’t consider charges and taxes.***

***Update – 3rd Nov 2014. By popular demand, we have decided to include approximate trading costs before displaying the quant. Computing exact costs is not available right now, but is planned for the future. Also, since all quants are meant to show you relative performance, we believe that it is reasonable enough to help you make decisions based on approximate trading costs. If you want to see your normal P&L statements with exact costs, it is available in the report section under Q.

Approximate Trading Costs assumed (including Brokerage, STT/CTT, Transaction charges, Service tax, Stamp duty), :

1. Equity : 0.02% or Rs 2000/crore of turnover
2. Equity Futures: 0.0125% or Rs 1500/crore of turnover
3. Equity Options: 0.08% or Rs 8000/crore of premium turnover
4. Currency Futures: 0.0075% or Rs 750/crore of turnover
5. Currency Options: 0.06% or Rs 6000/crore of premium turnover
6. Commodity Futures: 0.0125% or Rs 1250/crore of turnover
You can also see all your quants without trading costs, Click on N to not consider trading costs.

Equity Curve

The equity curve helps you measure the performance of your stock portfolio versus the benchmark (Nifty Index). You will be able to plot how Rs 100 invested in your portfolio would have performed as compared to Nifty. See the below equity curve for one of our clients and how he has outperformed the Nifty.


Equity Curve

Time based analytics should help you better manage positions, reduce your trading size on time periods where you have historically not performed well and increase when you have.

Equity Curve will help you measure the true performance of your holdings. Yes 30% in a year is good, but not if the benchmark was up 60%.

The quest from when we started Zerodha has been to give our traders an edge over others while trading the markets. Be it lower costs, a good trading platform (Pi), reporting (Q), trading tools, initiatives like 60 day challenge or now Quant. Quant is the first of its kind tool offered to retail trading community, not just in India but across the world. This is just a start, and we will add a lot more in the next few releases for you to be able to figure out where exactly you can improve to help increase your odds of winning while trading. And of course, needless to say, Quant is absolutely FREE to all Zerodha clients.

Do help spread the goodness. If you’re a client, you can use the associate program.

Happy Trading,

Founder & CEO @ Zerodha

  2. saurabh joshi says:

    @Nithin Kamath , HELP NEEDED PLEASE. Its petty that I need to come to social forum to ask help on my open ticket !
    All my P&L is messed up and showing wrong which is stopping me from buying or selling anything. I am an inch away from switching to another broker.

    I heard that many people are facing this problem. Why Zerodha is not sending some responsible communication out to everyone?

  3. Saurabh Joshi says:

    Many of my stocks’ average buy prices are messed up, also even when I have not received any bonus shares the system is showing me lot of discrepant quantities. When checked with Zerodha support they confirmed that there is some issue ongoing with their backoffice system & these issues will be resolved when the new backoffice system CRUX comes online.

    Does anyone here know when the CRUX will be available to customers?

    • saurabh joshi says:

      @NithinKamath, help please.

      • Matti says:

        Hey Saurabh, I seem to have missed your comment. Sorry about that! Our new backoffice, Console, is now live. You can access it here. Please check it out. You can submit your feedback here, if you spot any issues.

        • saurabh joshi says:

          Hi Matti,

          I can login to the portal but portal shows me data about only the scripts that I have added this month or in the last month.

          Prices for my holdings from past one year are all messed up on current portal and new portal has no data about those scripts. On the new portal it shows me bunch of discrepant quantities for lots of old stocks & for those stocks I have no discrepant holdings that I need to manually enter. My average prices are still wrong.

          So, the new portal is just showing the same information as the old one with different layout !

          Can you please help fix this for me? I have #20180810111119 open on your support portal for this.

          Saurabh Joshi

          • saurabh joshi says:

            Also, is this new app you mentioned a replacement for Q? I heard there is a new back office system called CRUX? Can you share link to CRUX? My mis calculated average problem is back office reconciliation problem.

  4. Rajnish Busa says:

    I am not seeing Tata steel avg price in my portfolio.they are saying it will take 15 days to launch crus. Then it will be okay and you will see the avg pice correctly. I don’t think crux will actually be launched for customers. Is it? Is it really going to be happen?

  5. Dheeraj Bhardwaj says:

    I send mail to support regarding CRUX and they replied that it will be operational by the end of March.

    Still no clue about CRUX, I am starting to believe that I made a mistake by switching to Zerodha.

    • Matti says:

      Hey Dheeraj, we have indeed switched to Crux for most of the backend calculations. Crux is the name of the engine that runs in the background. The application you see will remain more or less the same, but the values will come from Crux.

      • vikas says:


        i was thinking that new crux backoffice would have trading journal..and my day to day , week by week, year by year trade details in graphical form, would it be there when you launch new backoffice version ?

        • Bhuvanesh says:

          Hey Vikas, building a trading journal will take time and it’s on our list of things to offer. It won’t be part of our new backoffice at least in the initial versions.

  6. Rajnish Busa says:

    When are you going to launch crux?

  7. Janaki Lavu says:

    We request you to provide the NSE and BSE indices at Holdings in KITE mobile verson.

    When we are watching the Holds we have to know whether the market is going up or down.

    It is very useful to all pl arrange to activate the above.

    Thanking you

    With regards Janaki Lavu

    hello team zerodha/ Last synced date: None
    Hello! We’ve currently deprecated Quant as we are working towards bringing the next version of Quant in our new backoffice. We will not be able to sync your data any further and apologize about the inconvenience caused. Thank you for your patience!.

    • Rajnish Busa says:

      I am listening same thing for so long that Crux is going to launch soon. Now 31st March is coming nearer and we are also worried about LTCG CALCULATION and still Zerodha is silent. I am not getting any correct data over q.zerodha.com. Nothing synced. No body is really bothering in Zerodha. It’s is like govt dept where every project is always delayed and they never know when it gets finished. Whenever you ask they say “soon”, a simple one letter word to get rid of customers. That’s it. Best of luck Zerodha with your company management and technical team.

  9. rajul says:

    1. I have referred 5 persons 4 have joined (within 60 days) but in Q its showing only 2 persons joined yet.??
    2. My referral doing intraday trading but referral commission deposited to my wallet is very much less then expected with respect to his trades.

    Pl resolve both concern, since tried in many ways for solution but hopeless from response.. hope this forum will help me out or else it’s a demotivation act to refer peoples & get not what expected/committed.

  18. Rajnish Busa says:

    I am waiting for Crux launch. I have added discrepant value for same stock two times. Now I am unable to delete it untill Crux is launched. So I am asking for exact date when it will get launched. Why it is delaying for more than 1 year?

    Hi Sir,

    I got the allotment message of 1 lot(60 shares) for Capacite Infraprojects Ltd.
    But the same is not reflecting in Zerodha account in Holdings tab.
    Please let me know what is the issue.

    I have booked this IPO through SBI using zerodha account number.


    • Matti says:

      Hey. I see that you haven’t submitted the Power of Attorney for your account. This being the case, you wouldn’t be able to see any stocks in your demat account on the platform. I suggest you courier the duly signed PoA to us at the earliest.

      • gurunadha reddy says:

        Please let me know what needs to be done now to reflect the holding tab.

        • gurunadha reddy says:

          Please let me know to which address I need to send you the courier. I heard there is a zerodha office in kadubisanhaali. Can I hand over the document in that office? Or I need to do courier to office mentioned in ECN form.

          • Zerodha Social says:

            Yes, you can submit it at one of our branches, you can find out the nearest one here.

            • Gurunadha Reddy says:


              I have sent the documents on Thursday (5th October).
              please let me know by when I will able to see the holding tab listing updated.


  22. Rajesh says:

    It would be better if we could get just the portfolio in the form of API, so that we can import the data in Excel or dashboard for further analysis. I know zerodha opened up a personal trader platform with 2000 PM price tag but not all are required for every day analysis.

  23. Velusamy says:

    Is Quant deprecated? I am not able to view any data in that page. I see a warning message that says Zerodha can not sync the data as they deprecated the Quant.

    If so, is there any idea to bring any other new analysis tools?

  26. Krishnan says:

    It would be great to reverse the order of display comments/responses – have the latest showing up on top and the oldest at the bottom of the stack.

  27. Nikhil Varghese says:

    I have been trading for the past week, i tried to use the quant feature in q but was unable to do so, It displays “No Data available” for any timeframe. I called up zerodha support and the gentlemam there advised me that quant has not been rolled out yet and will begin only by August end. Going through the comments above i think it is already functional in some way. Please Advise.

    When will be the new backend CRUX be released.
    Data has been inconsistent for the corporate action related shares, be it in PNL statement or Trading platform.
    Can you tell us a tentative date on which this will be released ?

    • Venu says:

      We’re working on it, most of the bit is done. It’s undergoing the final testing phase and will be released soon.

      • VB says:

        I was told in April , that it might take 2 more months for the release, May and June are done, can we get a tentative date at least, Also there are inconsistencies in backoffice where holding duration sometimes appear and some times dont. This should also be made consistent. Can we expect our data to be consistent in atleast one month from now?

        • New Q should be out in a month, quant will maybe take some more time.

          • VB says:

            Thank you for the update. Eagerly awaiting to welcome the new Q.

          • VB says:

            I think one month has already passed, new Q is still not out? Again one more month?

            • Venu says:

              All our resources are dedicated towards taking Q live, will be up soon. Sorry for the delay. We’ll keep you posted.

                More than one year over…where is CRUX

                • Nutan says:

                  All Important reports like P and L report, 60 day challenge report are incorrectly generated for me..I had raised ticket for fixing the same but nobody bothered to fix those existing issues. I understand you guys are focusing on bringing up a new backoffice but that should not compromise the quality of existing backoffice Q.
                  This is getting really frustrating for me since I don’t know how much I made or lost in past 2-3 months.
                  Until the new backoffice is live you guys should fix the issues with existing backoffice asap.


  30. raja sekhar says:

    any expected date for releasing of new house backoffice, Crux?

  31. Mangesh Kadam says:

    I can’t see any data in Quant. Its been 8 months since I have opened my account. Not a single time I am able to see any data in Quant. Do I need to do something else for this?

  32. Sunil says:


    Quant App is not displaying any data for me (user id : ZX4902). Is there any restriction?


    • Sunil, until the new Q is out, we have stopped supporting quant. It will come out in a new avatar soon.

      • Jagbir says:

        I got following msg from support team… That there is no timeline for crux… This is furious


        Dear Jagbir Randhawa,

        Thank you for writing to Zerodha.

        There is no time line for Crux. Once we lunch the Crux then you will get confirmation on the same.”

  34. Kash says:

    Hey Nitin

    Almost everyone is having sync issues since the beginning of 2017. Its been so long since this issue is being reported by so many users. Considering that Zerodha boasts of the being a top notch technology broker its a little funny that you guys havent been able to fix such a simple issue for the last two months.

    I am small investor from a village from Hassan Dist.for people like us it’s very difficult to understand what and how much we have charged in a trade. Plz put it in a simple and results based instead of making complex. .we like to stay with zerodha thank you

  50. Joey says:

    Hi Nithin,

    While Time Analytics is a cool feature to view the profit and loss pattern, it does not take into account the profit and loss after brokerage and other tax related charges. This can be extremely misleading. For instance, Time Analytics show that I made continuous profits for two weeks, while in reality I lost Rs 650 due to trading charges two days in a row in the same week. I wish Time Analytics and all other analytics take this brokerage and tax charges into consideration for displaying analytics. Also, there is no way of knowing the total cost of my transactions (buy and sell) unless the next day (Kite does not update P&L even at 11:40 PM – 10 mins after close of commodity trading hours). While Zerodha provides a brokerage calculator, it is not very effective if you are dealing with a large number of trades.

    Suggestion: Provide a display of estimated charges based on the last trade executed. The key word here is “estimated”. I understand that it is not possible to display real-time actual charges until close of trading day, but an estimate would be a big help.

Hats off to you for these type of inventions in indian market, Please continue it irrespective of useless comments & demotion by some pepole. I am big fan of yours for these type inventions.

    Guys, I have opened a new account with Zerodha (though I am not new to market). I heard alot of zeroadha, also you got award recently at ET bootcamp. But looking at some silly thing, I force to write about it. why your quant service is down, even though it is down why don’t you put some message there. I don’t it is big deal to do that. I am sure it is not your engg can’t do that, it is your management who can’t think about impact due to this on your branding which started on right foot but could not maintain it .
    Rather giving focus on expanding business, fix running business. Or don’t give service which you can’t maintain.

  68. Pavan says:

    Equity curve in Quant is not showing result/graph until current date. It always takes 27th Dec 2015 as last date no matter which option I chose. Any fix for this?

    Hi Nithin,
    I am a losing trader since 10 years. But the happiest fact is that the applications which you guys are providing is simply amazing. I love PI, then the Kite and then the quant. You guys rock. These are very powerful tools.

    Couple of request though:
    1. In PI, I cannot have both RSI and EMA of RSI working on hourly chart specially on commodity charts of CRUDE and NATURAL GAS. Can you get this rectified?
    2. In Quant, when you show analytics of by buy/sell on chart, can you please sort the buy and sell signal based on time? As of today it does not differentiate between long and short.

    I am a very tech savvy person and very happy that I chose Zerodha. I would not only use your service for long time but recommend to my friends.

    My Client ID is DH0569. You or your team can call me if you need further clarification.

    Dear Sir,

    Hi Nithin,

    First of all would like appreciate you for just a great tool to figure out profit and losses however there is some problem in profitability on daily wise Just i was checking and trying to get the daily profitability record what i found some of days profit and losses and not there or missing. so could take this forward and i have already raised two – three time support ticket but there is no response from them.

  80. Prabhat says:

    Hi, I am not sure if this is the right place to ask/comment, but I just installed PI (Absolutely excellent, and very intuitive trading platform), but I have a request. Is it possible for Q or PI to have an option where records for the same contract in different months are integrated. For position traders who roll their positions over, it is easier if we don’t have to manually add and subtract the same contract for Nov, Dec, Jan etc.

  81. anna says:

    Whats the difference between folllowing reports in Time based Quant:

    (a) Profitability > Weekly
    (b) Weekly Overview

    Also, following suggested:

    (a) Profitability should be first report in time basd quant. Every thing else flows out of that.
    (b) Profitability data (displayed below graph) can be better presented in tabulated manner. Same is true for all other data displayed below graphs.
    (c) Streaks can be neatly displayed in tabulated manner alongwith profitability data.
    (d) Week days Breakdown – Weeks (Green Rectangle) is not relevant to week dyas breakdonwn and is already covered in Profitability > Weekly.

    Will be posting my comments on Trends and Cotract based quant views subsequently.

    • a. Profitability-weekly, is visually showing your profitability(P&L statement) over the last 1 year + in terms of week. So Oct 1st week,2nd week, Nov 1st week, 2nd week etc.
      b. Weekly overview shows which week of the month (1st, 2nd, etc) overall have you been profitable. As in, your average P&L over the last 1 + year to see if there is any pattern in you making money say 1st week of the month or last.

      Thanks for the feedback.

      • anna says:

        Thanks for clarification …. you may consider providing ‘weekly breakdown’ months wise (just the way you have ‘weekday breakdown’ weekwise for ‘weekday overview’).

  82. Neerajakumari says:

    Hi Nitin,
    Wanted to check if you are relesing Pi tomorrow

  83. Prabhat says:

    Hi, unfortunately, this problem with the splits is still there on the Q P&L.

  84. Prabhat says:

    I just realized it has not adjusted prices or quantities post the stock-split of SBIN, can this defect be corrected, it started occurring only day before yesterday, but it’s highly confusing.

  85. Prabhat says:

    Quant has suddenly developed some strange glitch. My realised Profit is suddenly displayed as a wholly inaccurate figure because since day before yesterday it has started recording my buy price for SBI Nov futures as 368.30 (It has not traded anywhere near those levels and my actual average was obviously much lower).

  86. ASHOK KUMAR M.K says:

    Hi Team Zerodha:

    I have been a client of Zerodha for the past 2 years. Although, not a great player, feeling extremely happy with your technical service and innovations.Thank you and All the best for your future venture !

  87. Jeenay Kamdar says:

    Hello ,

    The quant is showing completely wrong data for my account as the pnl shown for month and yearly are completely wrong and the data is stuck at October .. Please advice. Thanks

    Best Regards

  88. I am not able to see any report in quant… Since last 3 days, I get message that “Wait until we fetch your data” !!!

  89. moumita ghosh says:


    I am a user of zerodha trading platform since august this year.My quant was last synced on 01 october 2014 and the latest data in the quant available till 22 october 2014. Since 22 Oct I have made 10 trades till 4 nov 2014, however the data is not updating in the quant. I wrote to admin on friday received no ans. Any issue with the software or is this a localised issue. Quant helps me take informed decision , so pls solve my issue quickly.

  90. npg says:

    Can we download this to excel or csv format?
    That will still help us further more to derive calculation offline.
    Kindly provide this info. Thanks.

    Hi Nitin

    Glad to hear that going to launch PI trading soon. Is there a Indicator itchimoku tool availa

    Awesome Work guyz..
    Now i can check my Entire history of Trading(money minting Pattern)

  93. stock hunter says:

    Hi Nitin,

    Zerodha Pi software Is there scanning facility (equity) like amibroker? Let say Intra day highest %movers or decliners ? or last 180 days highest volume spikers etc??? Is it possible through PI ?? second
    Now Zerodha terminal is have some problem especially if u r login in different time zone countries…we cant get chart update after certain time…Is that problem solved in PI ???

    I appreciate your response


    • Yes there are scanners available, but don’t know if it will work like what is on Ami.

      Once you test Pi out, let us know if you face any issues, we can have that fixed.

  94. ajay says:

    Hi Nitin,
    we are too excited about pi, and eagerly waiting for this tool, when will this be released ?

  95. prashant.warrier says:

    Hello Zerodha, I am a prospective convert to Zerodha, I am currently using other trading platforms. The key thing i am looking for is a superior trading platform and i have been very impressed by what i am reading/hearing about “PI” and other supporting tools such as Quant. Analytics is a key component of a traders success and am glad Zerodha is doing what it can in that space…..My specific question today is does any of Zerodha’s platforms currently allow for a “cash linked Future order”….I.e. will I be able to put in a pre-market order that says if Nifty or any stock touches a particular price, immediately buy a future of Nifty or the stock. Simply put, instead of buying in equity segment at a particular price, i want to trigger a futures order at a cash price trigger.
    If not currently available, does the new platform have this feature?
    This is an important feature for a futures trader and i know only of IB that provides this feature. It would be a key differentiator.

    • Prashant, one trigger other is something that we will have on Pi in the future. This will take some time though.

      • prashant.warrier says:

        Thanks Nitin for your quick response…..This responsiveness is what will prompt me along with some others from my trading community to sign up with Zerodha….Afterall, when this is driven from the top, I can expect the team to be as responsive to our needs…..Well done….we appreciate it. and do keep this focus even as you grow with many many more customers….Thank you

  96. ravi78 says:

    Hi Zerodha
    While this is a commendable initiative that you are attempting to provide analytics capability and am sure with passage of time you will provide more insights and improve, but when i look at my reports currently, it all seem erraneous and the profit or loss amount shown on certain days, is clearly very wrong. There are huge spikes on certain days with profits and loss running very high (and i know for sure i have not done that much on a day 🙂 and on days when i know for sure i have made profit, the report shows loss and vice versa….even if you take the last 7 days data for me, it is producing erroneous reports…

    Currently while these reports seem attractive initially, beyond that, they dont add any value as i cannot infer anything meaningful from this….

    Should you need any data points, i can mail to your team.


    • Ravi,

      Time based analytics is based on when you enter the trade. So for example, if you bought Nifty futures on monday and sold it on thursday for profit. The profit is added for monday, because this analytic is used to tell the best time to enter the trade.

      But I have already emailed you, we are double checking and will get back to you soon.

  97. arkind13 says:

    Zerodha! once again have exceeded our expectations. Such products from a discounted brokerage was an unthinkable past. Just a suggestion, apart from time analytics, if you could also include stock specific analsis it would be great. For example, which script has given me consistent profit and vice versa and also the sector where I’ve gained and lost. Looking for more such features.

  98. Manish Gupta says:


    Good initiative from Zerodha… My question is with regards to the granularity of data for time based analytics, Is it possible to drill the data down to the time (hh:mm) of day when one makes profit or loss?

    • It will be very tough to go to mm, but yeah hh is planned. So you can see your performance in the last 1 hour or first 1 hour of the day. Should be available in the next couple of months.

  99. jayanth says:

    hello in pi charts time frames will be 15 also na

  100. Ashutosh Garg says:

    Only the Quant logo is available. Quant tool is not working

  101. santanu says:

    although i have not yet tested the Q. but the idea is no doubt wonderful. thanks zerodha.

  102. sureshsarvan2 says:

    Hands down. Great effort. What a way to amaze the kids.
    Seriously, asserting this so called “Quantitative Analysis tool” (Which is nothing but a bunch of graphs reflecting what a bank statement would do) as a way to improve your trading pattern or strategy, is laughable.
    And that too from a broker who calls himself “modern” gives me hints about the desperate-to-market strategies of yours.
    1. Your weekday strategy: Useless. Give me one reason that figuring out which day of the week has been most profitable to in last couple of months would increase my profit. Is it like that the God has assigned each one of us a “lucky weekday” trading on which we can earn bundles of cash? There is absolutely no relation between the day of week and the movement of any stock or commodity or currency prices.
    2. Week of month strategy: Again Useless in the similar way. Copy my comments from above.
    3. Profitability: Essentially same as the trading history with profits and losses. At least not completely useless.
    4. Equity curve: Not an out-of-the-box offering but at least this reflects something. One get to know how he traded, can set a benchmark to rate future trading performances. But nothing that can improve his trading skills or help him earn more money. Its like Batting average of a Batsman, people can judge him(or have a good time killing discussion over it) with that number but knowing it won’t help him to refine his performances. Its just a bundle of figures, that’s it.
    5. Streaks: Although it also doesn’t offer anything which could make traders earn more, but it may help them know about their trading style(which can make them wonder about figures which are essentially of no use but merely a topic of discussions).

    You baffle me when you assert things as you’ve done in your first paragraph. Anyways, impressive initiative. Good Luck with your sales!

    • Hey Suresh, 🙂 thanks and appreciate your feedback. This is just Quant starting off, ideally we should have launched once all the reports were ready. But we were spotting trends that we thought could help our clients.
      About our weekdays/week of the month report, what if it shows that in the last 40 mondays you are are down on 75% of them, but you are up 75% of the times when traded on friday. What if the report showed a client that he loses money everytime he trades on an expiry day? But yeah, debatable topic it is. 🙂
      But in the next couple of months you will see reports like how you performed based on your trading size, how you performed while going with the trend and against the trend, how you performed based on the stop/target you used, and a lot more.
      Do let us know, if there is anything that you would like to see. Quant is just starting off, and excuse me if you thought I was being too loud.


      • sureshsarvan2 says:

        See, you haven’t actually contributed to counter my arguments, apart from using “what ifs”. But if you’re so confident with the percentages you’ve quoted after the “what ifs”, I would advise you to document it properly as a research work, you might make a Nobel Prize out of it. 😀 But on a different note, I hope your forthcoming reports would be lot more meaningful and interesting. Good luck.

          • Prime01 says:

            Whatever little insights i got about my trading behavior using this new tool was definitely useful and again thank you zerodha for this. So please keep it coming.

        • Varun Agarwal says:

          @Santosh – At the very least someone on this Earth is trying to something to help his clients. What have you done ? If you are so called extra “smart” why not design and launch a better product ? May be then Nithin will listen to you. Until then use it or leave it! May be Nitin has not yet won Nobel Prize but have you even won Bharat Ratna for your smartness ? BTW is your IQ even been nominated ? Or why not you start another brokerage and impress us ?

          @Nitin Today when companies are trying to highlight with data crunching (read EMC), i think this tool is doing what they are going. I am sure this tool in future will start showing things which even you may not have imagined. But i am sure you will be more than happy when this happens. Keep up the good work. Looking forward for more…

  103. Awesome.. Let us know when you plan to be listed 😉

  104. Phani.kumar says:

    Hi. This is Phani. I am going through Quant. But it is showing “data not available”. Could u please check that?

  105. SANTHOSH says:

    @Nitin… Congratulations on Zerodha and all the new initiatives you have been providing for making traders life more easier.

    I had prepared an excel file and Have been using it from long time now, where i manually put in the data and do similar kind of statistical analysis.

    I am also happy that we have something in common that we are both from BIT.

    Wishing you all the success …!!!

  106. Gaurang says:

    Hi guys;
    Great work on quant – I’m finding out all sorts of strange things about my trading record. (I literally suffer from statistically significant Monday morning blues, for example). However, the reflection of my record seems wildly inaccurate on days when I carry an overnight (options?) position. I can’t quite figure out how it’s treating it – whether it’s failing to mark-to-market or what, but for instance when I try to pull up the daily profitability record, there are several days where the daily profit figure doesn’t correspond with the figure in the trading P&L section. These appear to be days where I was carrying an overnight options position. It would be great if you could rectify this – so that I can figure out whether my Monday morning blues are real, or not!!


  107. Prime01 says:

    Really nice feature to have. Congrats Zerodha 🙂 BTW, I had requested for a feature showing my total turnover for the period. But, there seems to have been no response for the ticket that was opened. @ Nithin – You had mentioned in simple taxation discussion forum that Tax P&L would be enabled for 2015 as way to look up for the turnover. But, as of now it has not been enabled. So, is there any other way to know my turnover.

  108. Manish Kayal says:

    I have been trading with Zerodha since 2011, How do I see the same analytics for all previous financial years?

  110. Vishal says:

    excellent …eagerly waiting for the new platform.

  111. vinay says:

    Hi Nithin,

    I thank you and your team for this initiative. This is going to be a great tool for all.
    I would also request you to consider having trading app for IOS devices as you have one for android. This is one thing missing since long time. Trading in nest web application in small screen is really difficult. Please suggest if there is other way available for time being.
    Is there any mobile version of NEST web application available?


    • vinay says:

      Hi Nithin,

      I checked with your front office and came to know that there is an app !!! Exploring it. Thanks a lot..

    • Dk0046 says:

      I am using an app on ios.. search for zerodha.. you will find zerodha mobile there.. it is not fancy but lets you do basic trading

  112. Nitin Agarwal says:

    Hi Nithin,
    Thanks for developing this tool and some interesting analysis. Can you provide similar analysis wrt leverage? I want to see historically how have I fared when I’m leveraged heavily vs a lightly leveraged scenario. I know that I tend to leverage heavily and then give away a big portion of my gains.


  113. naveentalkin says:

    Hi Nithin,

    Its a awesome tool but only thing is equity curve is not ploting properly.


  114. jayanth says:

    we need pi soooooooon

  115. Ram says:

    Great work! Kudos for offering it for free
    I do have a few doubts about how the metrics are calculated
    My figures don’t stack up right with the quant.
    My user ID is RP0910 and I suffered losses in MAR 2014 while the Quant shows profit for this month. I believe time periods start at the first day of the month for all the months. Also, the equity curve doesn’t seem to take leverage into account for calculating the return. Also, the case with streaks. They don’t match my longest winning streak which is 12 days. The losing streak of 8 matches but the dates differ. If required, I could send my data in the required format to the tech team.
    I just want this platform to be better. (Not just finding faults :))

  116. W_BHUSHAN says:

    hi Nitin , I have already client of Zerodha, I cant able to see above mentioned reports..I am mainly doing EQ….client id RJ0464…….Any restriction ?

  118. ElegantTrader says:

    Given that most of them are beginning out trading via Zerodha (courtesy, the new platform, brokerage, pretty good customer service), Is there a way to import several years of trading history from other brokers, say by means of csv or excel or any other means to get a jump start on this Quant Tool. I believe that would really make sense.

    Imagine, someone who really started out with zerodha will have little or no history and would take a while to build enough history to make any sense out of this tool. Pls throw some light on this thought!

    • Yep, we have already thought about it and working out on a way to import trades from other brokers as well. The equity curve already works, even if you had bought stock with another broker. When you transfer the stocks to Zerodha demat, Q will show up a discrepant quantity page where you can mention the price and date of acquisition which will be used to plot the equity curve.

      • ElegantTrader says:

        Thats cool to hear. Even a mechanism to manually feed in the transaction history by a data entry page would really help. This is all a right foot in the right direction.!

  119. DM0969 says:

    Nithin .. QQ on PI … are going to have Fibonacci extensions too or just retracements?

  120. DM0969 says:

    Congrations Nithin once again on this new tool… BI is the name of the game and quants will provide us with huge deal of information which was tacit till today.
