October 7, 2019

We have been working tirelessly over the past year to bring to you the best trading and investment experience.

    Hi Zerodha Team
    How to get alerts for critical F&O info such as ATM IV or IV Percentile?
    I do not find any such option on the Zerodha or Sensibull platform. This feature would be very helpful for traders. Please help.

  2. Avdhesh says:

    Hi i am avdhesh from Delhi Zerodha business partner when i opened zerodha account by zerodha partner account it was not mapping and how to open account with zerodha updated version


  3. Bharat Pawar says:


    I m trying to export live data from PI to excel but it shows “N.A.” every where, please guide me.

  4. Ambadas Mhanta says:

    In kite I am not able to buy and carry my position pls someone help me.

  5. RAMESH P says:

    Pl clarify:

    1.Is “streak” suitable for intraday trading?

    2.Is “streak” suitable for commodity trading?

    3.Is it correct that I wont get any margin from zerodha, if I use “streak” ?

  6. Senthilkumar Murugesan says:

    Hi.Is nri trading live without PIS route?
    I have been hearing from zerodha’s nri helpline that it is in testing phase for long time.

  7. vijay sinha says:

    How the hell can you regress? My Holdings in Kite which showed a perfectly OK “Avg Cost” have now become “0.0”. Even trades executed in past month are randomly showing the same issue. WTF?

    • vijay sinha says:

      I do not know what has happened to the data regarding my Holdings. About half of them are showing “Avg Cost” as 0.0 There was valid data shown earlier and now it has become 0.0 I see that this only happens when I had completely sold off a holding. Now when a fresh purchase has been made in the holding, Kite/Console is behaving in this crazy manner. Just show the value of the fresh/new buy please. I have not made a trade in these shares for more than a year, after having completely sold them off. Yet, now in the past 2 months, any fresh purchase of these shares does not show the cost of the fresh buy.

      Please allow to fix the value by uploading excel with list of trades. Best would be to allow a direct fix by choosing to fill in automatically from Tradebook the previous 365 days trades only, please.

      • vijay sinha says:

        This is ALSO the case whenever any new trade has been made in a share which has been held for more than a year . The average cost goes to ZERO. If NO TRADE is made for more than a year then it is OK very likely. WTF?

  11. Ganesh says:

    better concentrate on charting platform…..even kite tradingview charts also not good…lot of bugs….i have a doubt….U guys designed just like an tradingview website…just integrate data into that….because still kite tradingview using offline caching…every time we need to select the saved charts…if i close chart and again open in after one minute we need to select the saved charts……

  12. L C Tirthani says:

    Sir recently I applied 40 nos of shares of IRCTC IPO through UPI but to my surprise, the system has blocked Rs 62000/- instead of Rs 12400/-. I approached Zerodha CC but till date no solution.

    • Matti says:

      We see that you have indeed applied for only 40 shares. You’ll need to get in touch with your bank to check why they have blocked 5x the amount and have the excess released.

  13. Bharat vala says:

    Please build some logic so that an individual can See actual realised profit and loss while trading.. in position only…

    I mean after deducting brokerage,STT, stamp duty an all charges….
    Now a days we have to wait till contract not comes then will come to know what’s the actual profit and loss… It will be easier if will get that the actual p&L live….

  14. neeraj says:

    Please introduce one-click trading from the market watch window. I have been asking this for a long time.

    • Matti says:

      Hey Neeraj, there are regulations that govern how order placement happens. It is required for us to show you the order window and for you to confirm the order from there. Kite does remember the last order type and product you used to streamline this.

  15. Thulasi says:

    Hi, kindly introduce 75 min chart on kite trading view charts.
    The 75 minute time-frame chart divides our market hours which start from 9.15 am to 3.30 pm (375 minutes=75*5) into exactly 5 equal-sized candles. This helps us to get a better picture.

    Thank you

  16. Rajendra Pathak says:

    Online option required to update nomination. Online option required to add second member for trading account. Both these options are not available at the time of opening new account. Thanks

    • Matti says:

      The nomination form has to be witnessed by 2 other people. This cannot be done online, hence no option. Same goes for opening a joint account. Allowing two people to e-sign the form isn’t technically feasible.

  17. keshar singh says:

    I have informed to correct the order position in Pi platform.The moment you select a row it becomes so dark black color it becomes so difficult to read the details of any script. It was very good but after update it has become so. One year completed but this issue not resolved. I considered this Pi as best platform but it has lost its shine. will some one in zerodha wake up. Made several complaints verbal and email .They agreed but nothing happened

    • Matti says:

      Hi Keshar. Since Pi is a third-party platform (built and maintained by TradeLab) the updates are not in our control. I would recommend switching to Kite, our flagship trading platform.

  18. Oodiya amin says:

    What a slow app ever when i withdraw money its take 2 days

    • Matti says:

      If you place a withdrawal request before 7:30 PM, is it is processed on the same day and hits your bank account the next morning.

  19. Vishnu Manthalkar says:

    * कृपया पतंग व्यासपीठावर खंड आणि बाजार प्रोफाईल निर्देशक जोड़ा.*

  20. Manoj K Roy says:

    Hi Team,

    Can you please introduce functions(MATHS) in Streak Indicators section too? It’s currently available in Scanner options only.

  21. Omkar Pol says:

    Thanks for the updates… Satisfied with your service!
    In addition to this i would like to draw your attention towards unavailabilty of platform for investing in NCD, IPO. Yes, we want zerodha’s own platform to avoid going with other brokers.

    • Matti says:

      Hi Omkar, we have started offering IPO investments on Console using UPI. Check out this post. As for NCDs, you can buy them on the secondary markets using Kite. 🙂

  22. Rajesh kr chaudhary says:

    I am interested to invest in IRCTC IPO via Zerodha but that was not succeeded because I am not able to add payment mode. Tried several times.

  23. Vikrant says:

    It’s good to know about updates from zerodha.
    I want to know about when GTT is going to become paid service? How much money we need to subscribe to it?
    We all customers will be glad if you keep it as low as possible.


    • Matti says:

      The subscription will probably start next month. We’ll update you about the pricing closer to the date once we have arrived at a price.

  24. LAXMAN says:

    By sellecting All we can cancel all from order list in Zerodha,it is fine.On the other hand how can I upload my strategic Excell sheet to send multiple orders to exchange?May please work over it,it will give much help to me.
    Some sub-brokers ask to open Zerodha ac under their claint code to provide this Excell upload falility free.
    If it works perfect,then why not Zerodha do some research over it to provide this facility directly to their customers!
    As putting orders one by one takes time and Targets get missed due to late.
    Hope you will mind to provide this.


  25. Subhendu Ghosh says:

    Please add market profile and volume profile in trading view platform.

  26. Balappa says:

    Extend GTT Feature duration up to 1 yr free.It will helpfull to many who are not continually watching market due to their job.If positive output comes you may increase duration in future.

  27. Dilip Nilekar says:

    I requested you last 3 week’s back to activate my EQ’ts account . But it didn’t activated . my id is DD0028. HOPE atleast your support team executive will call me me tomorrow and get my problem solved.

  28. Pradeep says:

    Users should be able to update Nomination details online. Scanned copy of signed and updated should work that way.

    • Matti says:

      The nomination form needs to be sent as a physical document because we need to pass it on to the depositories as well.

  29. Hiren says:

    Please add Market and Volume profile indicator to the kite platform

  30. Hansa says:

    On pi even the scannet for candkestick dosent work, if it’s not working then you it is there?

    • Matti says:

      Hi Hansa, since Pi is a third-party platform (built and maintained by TradeLab) features are determined by the vendor. I would recommend using Kite, our flagship trading platform.

  31. Hansa says:

    In Pi charting software, while drawing trendline, there is no option to extend the trendline to left, right , this is a very basic thing which one charting software should have .

  32. Ganesh says:

    Great….Keep updates on Charts….

  33. Lokesh says:


    not using any of the updated “platforms”. would be very much interested if you could direct some of your attention to the mutual fund platform – coin. the route taken to deposit and withdraw via trading account adds to the entire timeline.

    paytm money seems to be stealing the show on this front.
