Kite – publisher

February 11, 2016


Many of you probably write stock market related blog posts or manage websites or mobile apps providing fundamental info, analysis, option strategies, advisory, etc. Until now, even though the decision making was happening on your interface, the actual placing of a trade would have been outside it. This meant lesser client traction on your site and loss of potential brokerage revenue share. Kite Publisher can now help you let your users execute orders via Zerodha with a few lines of HTML/Javascript code that you can copy paste.

How does it work?

We have added sample buy, sell, and trade demo buttons on the Kite publisher webpage to give you an indication on how it works. These buttons can be integrated to your blog, website, or mobile app to give a seamless trading experience.

Let me explain with an example. Assume I have this business that gives fundamental research and niche portfolio tracking on a website. These are decision making tools that might get a user to buy or sell, which is currently not possible within my website. The website also relies on a client manually updating his trade details for portfolio tracking to be in sync.

Using Kite publisher I can integrate buy and sell buttons as shown below.


Clicking on buy, sell will open a Kite overlay popup which can be integrated within the mobile app where any Zerodha client can login instantly. This means that you will be able to allow all the 1+ lakh clients of Zerodha to be able to place orders through your website. If the user is not an already existing client, we will capture the lead and our sales team will help open the account. All such leads generated will be mapped to you as part of our partner (authorized person) program.


One time login to Kite

Once logged in, an order placing window with stocks you coded into the buy/sell buttons will show up as seen in the pic below. Both the login and order placement in the popup are a part of our exchange approved Kite trading platform. This ensures regulatory compliance. The type of order, quantity, scrip can be determined by your website itself. The client will get an option to edit this order before placing.


Order placing

Also, while logging in if a client authorizes, your website will be able to pull all portfolio details of his account (this is a part of the advanced Kite Connect APIs). So now, your website can import data and build a very cool portfolio tracking report with just a single click. You can also initiate basket orders using Kite Publisher. All the documentation required for this integration is really simple and available here.

If you are looking at live market data feed to power your blog, website, mobile app, or any charting and programming platform, do connect with Let them know that you are a Zerodha client to get a special discounted offer.


Any new leads generated through your interface will be submitted on our sales CRM, which our sales team will coordinate, help open an account, and get the client mapped to you. Clients mapped to you would earn you a share of brokerage revenue generated irrespective of if the client trades on your interface or with us directly.

Getting Started

  1. Check out the Kite Publisher demo
  2. Signup for a developer account and generate an API key
  3. Read the documentation to integrate Publisher with a few line of HTML + Javascript.

Please note that all integration details are in the documentation. If you have any questions, post on the developer forum. We will not be able to provide any additional technical help.


Kite publisher is absolutely free of cost. Like I had said in an earlier post, it is not revenue but financial inclusion and helping grow the very shallow investor base in India that we are focusing on as Zerodha.


Happy Trading,

Founder & CEO @ Zerodha

    Add future list on Pi. ,
    Pl. let auto delet old date on future date window as back dates are coming and confusing it and has to adjust each time

  3. Sethu says:

    Is there a way to use free kite api script to place orders via other brokerage platforms, like u offer thru Smlcase

  4. r s nair says:

    Recently joined in zerodha. i have something to tell about kite ,the marketwatch. We can add 100 stocks in a total of 5 marketwatch pages. But they are inter related. you can sort the content in a single marketwatch. be not able to move one from one page to other. this causes discomfort when we want to see a stock while on trading hours, it takes lot of time to find out the stock of my preference. by the time i find the stock the opportunity might have missed.
    so what i want to suggest is make the market watch pages interconnected. when we sort , it should sort the order in all the five marketwatch pages together. so that we can get the stocks in alphabetical order. if it is not possible for any reason. i want to suggest that the first page should have the search area. subsequent pages will not. and there should be provision for moving one stock from one page to another.whenever we add a new stock it should appear in the first page only. then if there are already 20 stocks, when we add a new one the last one of the page should automatically move to the next page to give room for the new one to accommodate in the first page.

    Thank you so much team Zerodha to find us such great service at extreme low cost.

    I would like to give one suggestion
    Can your technical team will be able to add the tool for drawing demand and supply zones like Sharekhan’s trade Tiger.

    It is very useful tool for me. And I think most of the people appreciate the same

    Thanking you

CNC iam trying.I hav sufficient funds in my trading account
    Iam not happy with your technical supporting team.They take so much time like a complete day or even more to resolve the issue..Iam losing the opportunity to buy when markets are down.
    I didn’t expected this kind of services from zerodha.Though i dont lose hope,iam disappointed with you guys.
    I have sent twice mail today,spoken thrice wit customer care executives.Please understand how a customer feels when he/she has funds and a opportunity when markets are down but not able to buy Just because trading platform not working.

    HI Nithin,

    Are you working on sumthing like the below and wat is the time frame for its implementation?
    Introducing upto 4x exposure in delivery (from tradesmart)

  9. sanjay says:

    There is no option of square off all open positions in Kite. Please add this feature in Kite.

  10. Vishal says:

    “Kite publisher is absolutely free of cost. Like I had said in an earlier post, it is not revenue but financial inclusion and helping grow the very shallow investor base in India that we are focusing on as Zerodha.” – Nitin

    I believe you really want financial inclusion. Hence I request you again to provide Kite Connect API Access free to small retail investors. Make Algo inclusion for retail investors . By charging 2000 Rs p.m, we are essentially cutting off all small retail investors. Please consider my request and make the API Access free. You may charge for market data feed more to compensate loss of revenue from API Access fee.

    • Vishal, exchanges/regulators dont’ want everyone to give a shot at algo trading. Most people don’t understand the risks, there has to be a filtration layer.

  11. kushal says:


    In a scary and shocking incident, Kite failed to display my stock holding correctly no matter how many times I logged in. I tried using both the mobile app and the desktop app. When I logged into Q to find out if the back office has it correctly, again my holdings do not show the stock I purchased 4 days ago, totalling over 1 Lakh.

    Even if your team fix this by the end of the day, the loss I’ve had as to not being able to sell the stock on time is on who? This is unacceptable. This is supposed to be a discount brokerage, does it mean unreliable “ram bharose” brokerage too?

    • Venu says:

      Hey Kushal, The holdings were not visible for a few clients on the trading platform due to a Depository issue. This got resolved almost instantly. The holdings are updated on the trading platform and will get updated on Q, by the end of the day.

  12. Prem says:

    When can we have Limit Orders in Cover Orders on Kite.
    And Price Alerts would be a Great Feature.

  13. Chintan says:

    Can we Place BO Order Via Kite Publisher Account?

  14. Kumar says:

    Can we get to see spot price in when we add future of or option of the script. This will be useful because future/op tion trading decisions are made based on spot price.

  15. M Srinu says:


    I need price alert on kite. Please include in the next version


  16. Raviraj says:


    Kite is possibly the best app i have ever used for trading. But Please provide a option for security Price alert for phone number and Bracket order for Commodities.

  17. Lakshman Raj says:

    I added 500+4500rs to my equity account today. After few mins that amount where reflected in my equity account. But now i cant find the amount. It shows 0. Am much shocked. Please clarify me immediately. Please

  18. Mahendra Panchal says:

    Dear Nitin, The entire KITE platform is very light and it needs to darken a bit. It is straining the eyes. I requested over phone to treat it as a feed back. Nothing has happened. It is only a matter of tweaking with the software? Please if it is possible, do it. Thanks.

  19. Pravat says:

    Can you please brief on what Next in Kite 3.0 ?


    Please let me know why Avg.cost and P&L are showing as NA against SGBAUG24GB of my holdings in RN3263.This is resulting in wrong display of my investment and showing profit instead of loss.Please rectify the defect and reply

  21. vismadev says:

    Can u add buy, sell and market depth button in the popped out chart window. Then it will be much more easier to trade on the selected script.
    Thank you
    keep up the good work

  22. Mehul Mishra says:

    Hi Nithin
    In Kite in the “Positions” tab is it possible to put “Value” in the main display ? It would
    be useful to see the proportion and value of each of my positions. Right now the only way to see “Value” is to
    click on the “more info” button.
    Even within the “more info” section is it possible to put comma’s to separate the numbers so the numbers are easier to read .

  23. Sanjay Vadgbalka says:

    can i login to pi with multiple logins as i want to trade in my wife’s and daughter’s accounts simultaneously.

  24. srinivasonteru says:

    Hi Nitin,

    Awesome work you and your team have done till now. Extraodinary and mind blowing services are provided by your entire team. I can straight away say to my friends to opt for Zerodha without any doubt.

    I have no idea where to provide the suggestions, so just updating here only. I have few following suggestions to add up in kite so that every trader can get benefited.
    1. It would be good if we can see a 52 week high/low price below the market depth.
    2. And I would really appreciate if there is an option chain for both call and put options and their price details so that we can directly select the strike price instead of manually typing and checking the stock option.

    Looking forward for your reply

  25. Jatin says:

    Dear nithin sir,

    The kite platform have many horrible bugs.
    1. refreshing bug also in back office.
    2. kite and back office not show same account amount !!!!!!!!
    and also many but this two is biggest.
    What happening in zerodha !!!!!!
    sir, we are not expect from you because we know zerodha is best. so, why this types of drawback happen ?

  26. vijay says:

    Kite is really horrible and pathetic. date august 8th time 9:15 AM. ITS NOT EVEN OPENING . Server busy is being displayed. I have mailed the problem. First rectify basic issues of kite. PROBLEMS LIKE THESE SHOULD NOT REPEAT.

  27. Hiten Yadav says:

    Sir kite is a very good software….But sir Kite me Moving Average ki price jo right side me disply hoti he uski badle pi chart ki tarah uper ki side me displyho to its very good…

  28. Sharda says:

    Can you tell me how to provide a limit as well as trigger price for stop loss in a single order execution through KITE?

    Example of Single order execution – Buy INFY share at market price(say, Rs. 1100) with a stop loss limit price as 1050 and stop loss trigger price as 1060.

    So, as per your previous comments a trigger will be send at 1060. Considering CMP as 1055, the buy order should get squared off at 1055 since CMP(1055) > Sell Limit Price(1050).

    • Sharda, you can’t do it in a single order, you will have to place two different orders. Buy Infy at 1100 and once it is bought, place the SL order.

      And yes u r right about the SL.

  29. Sharda says:

    I don’t understand where you can provide a stop loss limit price and trigger price on KITE.

  30. Ritu says:

    I trade heavily using Kite. However the daily issues we are facing using Kite is embarrassing. Today for some reasons charts are not loading either on desktop or on mobile application. Every week there is a new issue and I have made many losses due to the same. Is this what Zerodha wants to be known for? Online brokerage with worst online trading platform?

    • Ritu, there are many new things we are trying out, there is a risk we take doing this. We introduced over 2.5 years of intraday data on kite charts over the weekend, which caused the issue. If we hadn’t tried, there would have been no issue. And yes, we had done all kinds of load testing, but live markets are always a different issue altogether. But yeah, I get your concern, and we are trying to do whatever possible to ensure no issues with charting or anything else when trading.

      • Sharda says:

        Kite is really horrible and pathetic. Stop loss never get triggered. The case is below –

        Brought HUL 920 CE @ 7.5 with stop loss trigger price as 5.
        The premium went to 5, still the positions were not squared off automatically.

        • Sharda says:

          Sent 3 emails to Zerodha Support and they have not yet responded.

        • If you have placed a SL limit with trigger at 5, there is no guarantee that orders are executed unless the LTP goes below the limit price you have mentioned.

          • Sharda says:

            Well the price went to 4.5 still it was not squared off. I squared it off manually. You can check the HUL 920 CE closing price. I think 4.5 is very well below the limit price of 5.

            • Check this post on stoploss orders. How it works is when the order is triggered a limit order is sent to the exchange. So if you have a trigger at 5 and limit at 5, when trigger is hit a limit selling is sent to exchange at 5. When price is dropping fast, this limit 5 can become a pending selling limit order. For guaranteed execution, it is best to place this limit at a much lesser price, say 4 in your case. So trigger hits at 5, a selling order at 4 is fired, this gets sold at the best available price in the market.

  31. Pravat says:

    Dear Team Zerodha,

    One suggestion for FNO: Please change quantity to No of LOT instead of LOT Value. Like Qty: 1 LOT for SBIN instead of 3000.


    • Pravat, most of our clients requested it to be the current way. So it is easier to know the position they are taking.

      • Sharda says:

        Better to show lot as well as quantity, with quantity field changing automatically based on number of lots provided and keep the quantity field as non editable.

    Hello Zerodha,

    After the update last week, there is an issue in the Graph where it is always default to 1 minute chart. But usually it will default to the setting that was done previously.

    If I want to get 5 minute chart, it doesn’t come and only 1 min chart appears every time when I select different scripts. Please fix this issue.


  37. Akil says:

    Hii nithin,

    Currently on kite and pi ,while using BO n CO. Entry order is by default limit order. Since i like trigger orders (SL orders) to enter , it would be really helpful if you can include SL orders as both entry and stoploss in BO n CO. Are u planing on doing that and if yes when can i expect it.

  38. Aditya says:

    Hi, there was a session by Nithin about Kite on Saturday (04-Jun-2016). I got SMS but could not watch it as was out for some work. Will there be a video available?

    Hi Nitin is that possible to provide multiple time frame (short,intermediate,long) KST indicator on pi or kite simultaneously for comparison.

    Thanking you in advance .

  42. benjamin says:

    How to sell CNC products.
    After selling 10 shares from my holdings , it goes to my positions and there it shows -10 shares and the P&L goes to negative .. Can anyone explain it to me plain and simple ..
    How to completely sell my shares from holdings (CNC) . Do I need to convert the position before selling or …
    I am not able to understand..

    I am new to this and I am unnecessarily losing my money because of this ..
    Can anyone help me out ?

    • When you sell shares from holdings, for that day it will continue to show in holdings as shares sold (with no corresponding buy), and hence there might be some marked to market profit/loss that you would see. The reason it shows in positions is because, you can buy back this share before the end of the day if you change your mind and it will be considered as an intraday trade.
      So yeah, just use CNC and place sell order or exit from your holdings, the shares will get debited from your demat account by end of day. Don’t worry about seeing them on the positions menu during the day unless you want to buy them back.

  45. Sushree says:

    Dear Sir,

    “If you want entry order in a bracket to work like a market, place a limit order much above the current price in case of buying entry limit or place a limit order much below the current price in case of selling entry limit order.”

    Please define what does it mean like “Much Above / Below”.

    Today I placed a Sell Order 10 points below current price but got executed at current price. Please explain.

    • Sushree, if you placed 10 points below the current price and it becomes a market sell, isn’t it what u wanted it to do? Much above/below means a few points above or below.

      • Sushree says:

        Dear Sir,

        I want to make it trigger or execute at the price I wanted i.e. 10 Points below the current price. Kindly enable the “Trigger Price” option. I mean a SL kind of order. Please help.

        • If you are placing a bracket, currently there is no option to set triggers using bracket order. You can use a normal stoploss order with trigger to sell set 10 points below the current price, but not brackets.

I have had accounts with various other brokers and i have downloaded various other softwares but i havent experienced a simpler software than Kite at Zerodha. Being a lawyer i am used to black on white and thats exactly what you have given me. A big shout for your team.

  53. Aarti says:

    Hi Team,

    Was there any technical snag post 3:15pm for users of Kite or Pi ? I had kept order to buy 1 lot SKSMICRO @ 615.70 and that got freezed in orderbook. LTP of SKSMICRO was 615 seller. Still my order to buy @615.70 didnt got executed and i tried to update it from Kite as well, but no luck. As of now Positions shows -1000 and I am worried that i didn’t wanted to carry SKS short and unfortunately due to this technical mess i am forced to carry. Waiting for contract notes to check what was finally happened..

    How to deal with such issues, specially when it happens at 3:15-3:25pm when your dial and trade numbers are too busy ?


  54. R.RAMAKRISHNAN says:

    Your kite soft webbased software lack the following:
    1. No cover order is available
    2. No alert for price movement, indicators is available
    3. Option to place order from chart not available

    pl therefore provide the above. it is not going to cost you as only software upgradation is required but it adds value to your member in terms of doing trading with ease and simplicity.
    Hope zerodha attaches value to customer experience.
    Please show it to them

  56. Chandramohan says:

    Hi Nitin Sir,
    I am a new customer of Zerodha. I liked Pi and your web trading platform. But I am facing one critical issue with Fund transfer.

    I am having account with citibank and I am not able to transfer fund directly. I need to do IMPS, then upload the screen shot on backoffice website. But the website is not taking any of the file formats like jpg, png etc.. So the money transfer is very problematic. I have a trading account with sharekhan and I never faced such issue there. Please get this issue resolved to make the end to end process smooth.

    Dear Nithin Ji,
    Thank you for your prompt reply & assurance.
    I have made an error in explaining.
    Kite range chart is not showing opening & closing rates.
    It is showing high & low rates as opening & closing for all the bars.
    Practically it is not possible for all the bars.

    Sorry for the error. Regret for the inconvenience caused.

  63. George Solomon says:

    Hi Team Zerodha,
    Kite is a wonderful platform where we can trade with the use of charts.
    This is the only platform where we can use the range bars.
    I find a basic difference between the range bars in kite with other range bars.
    Other range bars I have seen opening, high,low & closing of price irrespective to the time with same range for all bars.
    But in kite, the range bar is showing only opening and closing and not showing high & low of the bar.
    This can mislead the decisions and it is not exactly showing the price range.
    I am posting above comment as per my understanding of kite range bar chart.
    If the range bar can be fixed with range, please let me know.

    In Kite, Is it possible to generate an event based alert?
    for example in Intra day
    1) in Stochastic Momentum Index, I want to set an alert when K is cutting down D and both values are above 60.
    2) Further, is it possible to run this logic across Nifty 50 scrips and system generates an alert for a scrip which qualifies this in given timeframe?

    Can you provide multiple LIMIT order option in kite? When an order is placed, the margin get used up. Instead of that, for example lets say stock A is trading at 100. I want to buy above 102 and sell below 98. If I place any of the order as a limit order, margin get used up and I cannot place the other order. So by MULTIPLE LIMIT order I can place both the orders and when any one of them is executed, the other automatically gets cancelled. I hope this will be extremely useful for people who cannot monitor the market continuously.

    Dear Nitin Sir,

    KITE is an excellent trading platform for desktop, where you has provided various type of chart settings and a Super Trend magic to fly along with different types of Indicators which help to trader when they can BUY/SELL.

    I am posted an amibroker formula bellow, it is an excellent divergence and convergence indicator written with the help of MACD and Stochastic indicator (it is not written by me, it’s searched from google) but, it work amazing with change of color of candle stick. It is helpful to trader, when they will enter to trade (BUY/SELL).

    You are requested, may please test it. If it gives satisfactory divergence and convergence signals.

    I am humbly request you add it in the list of “STUDIES” of KITE TRADING PLATFORM it will much helpful for BUY and SELL.


    Show_color = ParamToggle(“Display CandleColor”, “No|Yes”, 1);
    r1 = Param( “ColorFast avg”, 5, 2, 200, 1 );

    • Sunita, for now adding custom indicators will be tough. But we have plans of having a facility where we can do this, but will take time.

      • Sunita says:

        Nitin sir,

        As so many indicators are available in kite, it is also could be added, if you are looking forward for the same.


  72. Bandhan Sharma says:

    Nifty Index has been added by Sensex Index still not adding after so many trial and keywords.

  73. Sanjay says:

  76. Yusuf says:

    Dear Nitin,

    how can we see the nifty and bank index on kite while trading like on pi has one window for index

  77. Felipe Feaganes says:

    Zerodha support asked me to ignore the Amibroker related error message. It worked, and I can now successfully fire orders from my python script! @ pybull – Do you necessarily need feed from Neoanalytics to fire trade orders using Pi bridge and using Pyrhon to write the codes?

  78. ARUMUGAM.N says:

    In a kite platforms, in holdings option , when move the mouse on that shows “exit ” what it is , if I am click its go to sell order, or what will be happen.

  79. beevarghese says:

    This is regarding kite Android beta .CO could be placed successfully but there’s no way I could square off/ exit the positions. I had to go back to pi and do it..please look in to it

  80. z-connect says:

    please update other harmonic patterns on KITE (Bat,Alt Bat,Black Swan…….). Gatley was very good. its almost like automatic.

  81. “Kite Publisher” is Gr8 stuff. I have ready a product in my site for placing orders, Free of course. My request is can it take more than 10Stocks@a time in the future. Currently only max10stocks is allowed in one go.

    At least 25stocks in one go will be ideal.

  82. Raj says:

    BO is available on Kite mobile app but not working. When is it likely to start working. I have been waiting for BO for quiet some time but it does not work on any platform other than pi which I can’t use.

    Pl let me know the likely date when BO can be placed on Kite desktop and Kit mobile app.

  94. maravinthkumar says:

    1. Can I use the kite api to built automated trading system for my personal use?
    2. How often Can i pull the quote information using the api?
    3. Is there any limit on number of api calls?
    4. What is the latency of your api ?
    5. What is the best way to get quote to my application with low latency?


    • Zerodha says:

      1) Although Kite Connect APIs are not really meant for automated trading, if you secure the necessary exchange approvals, this is possible.
      2) The live WebSocket API streams one tick per second.
      3) We have not set a hard limit as of now and will review usage on a case-by-case basis.
      4) Latency is unpredictable as it’s an HTTP API offered over the internet (numerous factors in play resulting in several hundred milliseconds). The API is definitely not meant for any sort of latency-sensitive execution.
      5) For low latency data, you’ll have to get co-located at an exchange and get quotes directly off exchange leased lines.

      • Sanjay says:

        As I understand we can place orders using kite API. So what did you mean when you said that we need necessary exchange approvals for automated tradings ?

        For example …. would I be able to create a button in my desktop application which places an order at say market value. ? Would this require me to key in my logon for each transaction or would it be only on the initial login ?

  95. Shishir says:

    Hi. Nice Information.

  96. ratan says:

    on 18 feb i purchased stocks in BTST but on 19 feb they are not reflected on home screen.
    i contacted support team then some excuse was given .
    but today we are not able to do intraday trading.
    why early warning was not given.
    its really very irritatingggggggg????

  97. Sarath Raj says:

    Hi Nithin

    I bought 25 shares of quick heal to my account yesterday and i dont see it getting reflected in my account today.Kindly help me resolve this.

  98. Navaneeth says:

    Nitin, Pls bring Opentrade Idea + Mobile platform ASAP. It is been a long pending project. When Net goes down it will help us to trade in mobile at least. Pls don’t delay. A Kind request.

  99. vinesh kumar says:

    dear sir
    despite these all new things happening around zerodha , we need OPTION CALCULATOR in zerodha Pi very despiratly . since this is very basic tool for trading software .
    please consider

  100. fazlur rehman says:

    Any problem with pivots plotting on kite charts ? Add indices watch window. Though Pi is amazing, Super trend is badly missing. Awaiting it since long time .

    hough pi is amazing Super trend in pi is badly missing.

  101. saxe says:

    Pi was good initially .. but now its gets stuck and keep getting reconnected .. and order modification take lots of time… so not practically usable in quick trades

    kite seems good now… looks promising… can i use it on desktop or is it intended for mobile only. On mobile its working fine. But on desktop its not. On desktop on ie11 i could login into kite but the market watch was not showing live rates.. I use maxthon browser… its a chrome based browser but when i am not able to login as the login buttons seems disabled.

  102. Suraj Kolsawala says:

    Dear Team,

    I had little request when I started using your mobile trading app is has one of Column its showing equitys RATE On home screen when I place order,But after upgradation of app this column was not showing….I request same thing if possible pls replug this column……

    • Suraj, the kite android app is available for beta testing. Why don’t you try that out, send an email to [email protected] to get access. Also checking on your request.

      • Vj says:

        Yahoooo…..Its Very sleek and simple. Just loved it where you have given a Buy access from the holding which i always used to average or add more to existing holdings .I always missed it after i moved from ICICI.Should be trading tomorrow with Kite APP.

      • I have sent a request for the Kite Mobile! Lets see how this goes. Any criteria to be provided access and any updates on the BSE, Bracket, Cover orders?

        • BSE, brackets, and cover are on kite mobile.

          • suresh says:

            Dear Nithin,
            On Kite mobile have an indicator to show whether it’s BSE script or NSE script similar to Kite Web app version. Also i mailed few observations to support team. Please get it checked.

            • Yep, a bunch of things will change next weekend. The current version is more like an alpha release, we are trying to see if all the functionality bits are working fine.

              • Ashwin Shetty says:

                Hi Nithin,

                I did use the Kite mobile app yesterday. The charts need a lot of work on. They seem to freeze and it is difficult to implement studies e.g. SMI on the chart. We should if possible implement a pinch and zoom feature only for the charts.

                Also, today morning from Marketwatch on the mobile app i was not able to buy or sell.

                Otherwise all good so far. Hope changes next weekend.

          • Arvind says:

            Dear Nitin,

            I do not see BO available in Kite mobile application. When I talk to support team today, she said this BO option just enabled in Pi application & hasn’t enabled in Kite application. When can we expect that, it will be available in Kite mobile application? Thanks!

      • suraj says:

        Thx lot……

        From my side I check at Google play store and update if any question……

  103. Dr Suresh says:

    Dear Nithin,
    Is it possible to include StepMA NMC V3.01 indicator in KITE web application. This indicator is coded for MT4.
    Its a very similar indicator like super trend but can be tweaked more than supertrend.

  104. chandru mehta says:

    I have till date not come across such a pleasing , interactive and user friendly software as Pi. Glitches apart its a winner . I have traded on other platforms no one can provide such friendly charts and friendly trading both in the same software as PI & Kite.

  105. ratan says:

    dear sir
    is there any additional feature that zerodha is providing in comparison to indian trading league

  106. Anant says:

    Good Going!!

    I would suggest you should upload a short detailed video demo for every new updated technology/feature, that would be good for everybody to understand it easily.

    Looking fwd for new gr8 updates.

  107. Aswin says:

    Cover order,bracket order and TSL features very much required in kite web application. For IT professionals who can use only kite web app during market hours and having no permission to install 3rd party sw in company system will be largely helped with it.I am really happy with Zerodha.Nice service .

  108. Rajeshkumar says:

    kite is fantastic but we need more data for nse in charts some scripts have only limited one year data

  109. NImesh says:

    Very Interesting, does any revenue sharing with publishers, if yes how much, it looks like Google Adsense program, I think!

  110. Sadiq says:

    Hi Nithin, you people are some what tricky, millions of trading transactions has done though your platform. But no transaction mistakes happening. But I have referred some of clients ,this month onwards referral wallet not get updated. How come happening this kind of mistakes. It’s really ridiculous.

  111. Hari says:

    Need link to apply in IPOs both debt and equity online. It’s becoming very difficult to look out for forms and apply, rather applying in a click of the button.
    This has been a very long pending feature to be included in Zerodha. (Hope am right!)

    • A little tricky because of this ASBA issue. But we are trying.

      • Neeraj Chandak says:

        Yes Nithin
        There has to be some way by which Zerodha helps it’s clients to subscribe for IPO. PARAG FOODS, MGL, QUESS CORP, L&T INFOTECH I missed all of them.

        • Venu says:

          If you have internet banking available on any of your bank accounts, you can apply for the IPO. You can mention your Zerodha demat account number while applying online. SEBI has made it mandatory for all IPO applications to be supported by ASBA, so there’s very little we can do unless the regulators make some changes to the existing rules.

  112. ShreyaDR says:

    God initiative. Btw, with the mention of selling of mutual funds, i want to ask that ‘has buying & selling of mutuals funds facility started in zerodha?

  113. JAY says:

    Hi Nithin,

    I don’t know why you give financial incentives in your programmes. Zerodha brokerage is lowest and as an client perspective I am having a feeling that bcoz of all of this financial incentive, which you are doing to increase your client base, you might as well increase the brokerage to bear that expense. that is not good at all. This defies the purpose of getting Zerodha account. All that matters to traders is your low brokerage plan. can’t see that getting threatened in the name of services and incentives you may want to give others to increase ur client base.

    As somebody mentioned above earlier, introduce ideas, articles, guidance on “something like money management ,emotional control , risk control, capital protection, disciplined approach …on such topics Z team should come out with innovative ideas”.

    Lastly, encourage a open discussion forum for traders to share knowledge, news, ideas, calls, trades etc. this forum must have volunteers or moderators who can keep eye that people are not exchanging personal contact details, any external website links and also save people from getting trapped with tip providers or premium call providers etc

    As of now many traders are alone, dependent on someone or other. May be already paying to some tip provider or fund manager or a financial consultant. In one way or other they are dependent. It also may be moneycontrol message board or some other forum.

    There would be many helpful people having lots of knowledge & making money and who can also help others earn money while they are also earning.


  114. Ram Prabhu says:

    Rashmi Ranjan Rajguru Did you send it to [email protected] ? Try calling the support number. You will always get a proper response from Zerodha team.

  115. Rashmi Ranjan Rajguru says:

    ALready months back, i had given a lead to zerodha Team, and the new member already have send the form to zerodha (i am confirm about this). Till now his account has not been opened. I have given 3 emails seeking answer, I want to know “where is the problem”. But still my tickets are open.

    How can i rely on zerodha, that he will take care of the leads given by us? I am disheartened. Thats all.

    Hope Mr. Nitin, you are reading this post.

  116. Prashant says:

    Do I need to pay for the API if I am building a application/website for academic purpose. Also do you have API which provides details on economic indicator and data releases like PMI data, annual report of a company. Also can the data be read through web services like REST ? I am working on a academic project of intelligent notification app which suggests buy/sell based on market news and technical indicators.

  117. Dharam says:

    Superb Nithin, this sounds really interesting. Will check and do it.

  118. Amit Mishra says:

    Very Good…This is quite innovative and unique in its nature. First of a kind i have seen. Good luck for future.

  119. Vikas says:

    Hi Z team,

    Good initiative and win win condition for everyone involved.

    But as of today(11 feb2016) the carnage in market really keep everyone guessing and tortured emotionally.

    so if your intention is as mentioned below.

    it is not revenue but financial inclusion and helping grow the very shallow investor base in India that we are focusing on as Zerodha.

    then along with technological weapons something like money management ,emotional control , risk control, capital protection, disciplined approach …on such topics Z team should come out with innovative ideas to make this idea more strong.

    hope such more initiatives in pipeline …

    Thanks Zerodha for all your tools…i am really enjoying trading but really feeling pity for all those who lost money in today’s carnage..

    Mkt is always there – play safe, aggression + money management is must must must.

    Thanks Zerodha…
