Introducing Streak – Algo trade without coding


Streak is a startup that we have partnered as part of Rainmatter in our quest to broaden retail participation in the Indian capital markets.

Over the years, we have offered various tools to help our clients trade systematically – Kite Connect, Pi bridge, NEST-AMI bridge, etc.  Systematic trading brings in the discipline required to trade profitably. Even though Kite Connect has become extremely popular, since most retail traders have no programming knowledge, they have not been able to leverage it to their advantage.

I am excited about Streak and how it can hopefully be that change retail traders needed in their quest to stay profitable.

Find below a post by the team at Streak introducing to the first version of their platform. Do note that the platform will evolve and will incorporate a lot more technical indicators, and fundamental data over time. We have opened up a section on Tradingqna for you to discuss strategies and algos.

Streak simplifies algo trading

Technology has evolved drastically over the last decade and so have the stock markets. Algo trading in NSE has taken mainstage with over 40% of cash market orders being executed by algos as of Feb 2018.

On the other hand, we traders spend our market hours glued to trading screens, tracking multiple stocks and monitoring market movements, tediously trying to find trading signals. It’s practically impossible to make smart, timely trading decisions without human error, especially when emotions get in the way.

We need a platform which tracks the market for us based on backtested strategies and alerts us when the right signals are generated, giving us an algo trading edge.

Streak gives you a platform to algo trade, without coding.

With Streak, you can algo in 3 simple steps:

  1. Create
  2. Backtest
  3. Deploy

Create Algos in a minute

Using Streak’s intuitive interface, creating an algo is as simple as typing out technical indicators, keying in stop loss and target profit percentage and selecting the stocks you want to trade with.



Add up to 5 conditions

You can add up to 5 conditions in your entry strategy.

Exit based on strategies

You can create exit conditions (optional) for your algo using technical indicators

Technical indicators and chart patterns

Choose from a range of technical indicators to build your strategy

Streak has all the popular technical indicators such as Bollinger bands, Supertrend, Moving averages, RSI, Momentum Indicator and more. Chart patterns such as Spinning top and Engulfing pattern are also available on the platform.

Keep an eye out for more technical indicators in the next few weeks. You can see a detailed list of our technical indicators here.

Backtest to measure performance

Streak has a powerful backtesting engine that generates performance metrics for multiple stocks in a click. The backtest results include maximum gains, maximum loss, avg gain per winning trade, avg loss per losing trade, maximum drawdown and much more. These metrics give you a comprehensive idea of your algo’s performance.


Why is backtesting required?

Backtest essentially means testing a trading strategy on relevant historical data before you risk any actual capital. It is important to analyze the levels of profitability and risk before taking any trade in order to gain insight into the effectiveness of a trading idea.


Backtest results

Backtest results overview

Get a snapshot view of up to 20 scrips at a time and quickly skim through the results. Each result comprises of a P&L curve, key performance metrics and a downloadable transactions table.

Create baskets of stocks

Create and save custom baskets

Create custom baskets of stocks which you can later use to create algos and run backtests.

Add up to 20 scrips in a basket


Add up to 20 scrips per basket and give it a unique name of your choice for later use.

Access your baskets from the “Create Algo” page.

Test and deploy algos on baskets

Transactions table

Download table with all the hypothetical trades made in the backtests you have run.

Downloadable backtest results

Deploy live in market

Once you deploy an algo on Streak, you no longer have to track the stock manually. Streak bots track the stock movements for trade signals and send one click actionable alerts to take action when the strategy conditions are met.

Deploy your algo


Deploy algos across multiple scrips at once

Select multiple scrips and deploy algos at once

You can select up to 20 scrips at a time and deploy them all at once.

Notifications on mobile

Get notifications on mobile with the Streak notifications app

Receive alerts for deployed algos on the go, when signals are triggered. Install “Streak Notifications App” from Google Playstore to get actionable alerts on your mobile phone during market hours.

This app is only to take action on notifications and is not an end-to-end app. The complete app will be launched in July 2018.

Get started

You can log into Streak with your Kite credentials and get started. The platform is free until 30th June 2018 for up to 100 backtests and 5 live algos a day. 

Streak is an extension to Kite – Zerodha’s exchange approved trading platform (accessible at . Alerts by the algo are essentially triggered as buy and sell order forms which you need to confirm. All such orders are placed through Zerodha and will show up on the Kite order book and positions as well. Today, you need to have your browser open to receive alerts, but very soon you will start getting these on emails/push notification on Kite. 

Go ahead and try it out – Let us know what you think by writing to [email protected] or give your feedback here.

You can also check out our YouTube channel for Intro and demo videos on how to use the technical indicators.

Now, everyone can algo.

  1. Tushar says:

    Finally, Algo trading for masses is here in India!!
    I always wanted to create an app like this using kite connect API but never got time.
    This will be very helpful in creating a strategy on Indian stock market.

    Thank you Zerodha!

    • Streak says:

      Hi Tushar,

      Thank you for your feedback .

      • Naresh Devgan says:

        Double EMA & 3Triple EMA are not there also several other indicators missing. Commodity and Currency segments also not supported.

        Exit strategy from buy sell orders should also be made available by setting indicators rather than %age.

        • Sachin says:

          Hi streak team
          good work. But u need to reply to such queries. If we r reading and coming with questions means we r not be casual and dumb.

      • Ujjal Baruah says:

        Dear Zerodha,
        Streak is a wonderful platform for traders like us. However I would like to add a suggestion as to introduce pivot point indicator in algo trading platform. Since pivot is an important break point of the market also comparison should not be made mandatory as we can trade even with single indicator. Pls introduce Pivot Point in single mode without comparitor.


    • shyam says:

      how much charges algo streak platform

    • LNPai says:

      In case of NRML orders in future segment how SL & profit orders are handled . kite automatically expires orders at end of day..

    • shahbaj says:

      while analyzing past data , we need no go long way in charts for some past 2 months date. Please add feature for directly accessing the historical charts on date basis.

    • shreyas says:

      Please increase the 15 min candle backtesting to atleast a year. Testing for a month is not at all sufficient. We should be able to test for longer periods before actually deploying.

    • Manjunath says:

      Sir please add renko to algo

  2. Ranganathan Rajan says:

    What is the URL for streaks and does it support the mobile browsers?

  3. vikas says:

    Hi Z team,

    I am sure no other broker is near to yours in terms of product offered to its clients.
    Great addition to Zerodha’s product arsenal.
    It will beat like Bahubali to its peer.
    Thanks Z team.


    Thank for such Streak but please include feature like deployment of like opentrade codes and more condition for buying and selling and remove exit in profit and loss percentage instead add condition.

  5. Ranganathan Rajan says:

    Please add time and price based algos also like I want to sell stock or option etc at ‘x’ time if the stock is above or below ‘y’ price

  6. Ranganathan Rajan says:

    LTP of Options are not being updated on the Streaks platform at the same time strategies around options are also not available?

  7. Ashish says:

    Great way to Start 2018.

    Few Suggestions
    1) Placing order can be automated, rather than giving an alert?
    2) Add Hekin Ashi Candle criteria
    3) Trailing Stop Loss can be automated based on Technical Indicator or at least based on Candlesticks(Open/High/Low/Close)

    Thanks Nithin for this initiative and Best of Luck

    • Streak says:

      Hi Ashish

      Automation requires regulatory approvals. Once we have them we will update you . We are also planning to give exit based on indicators in the future.


      • raju says:

        hi streak,

        Its seems as if its a auto alert rather then auto trade. There again chances are there we will miss the trade as we have to monitor to check for alerts.
        Auto me auto, no human intervention should be needed once a code is deployed.


        • Karan says:

          True, I was actually hoping for a system wherein I could sell and buy without any intervention. I hope they add the functionality soon.

  8. Ranganathan Rajan says:

    Looking for Implied volatility based altos also like if IV of a strike is x% buy/sell an option and if it is y% then close the trade etc.

  9. Ranganathan Rajan says:

    Rs.500+ get per month is always higher price for the retail traders Rs.250/month should be ideally a reasonable price.

  10. Ranganathan Rajan says:

    Please check the chartlink website for more conditional algo’s and take the inputs from their website otherwise it is a worth zero.

  11. Arjun says:

    Like always, Zerodha thinks beyond conventional services and it shows in their growth.
    Few suggestions: (Based on my trading style)
    1. Exit should be based on indicator than percentage so that we don’t have to trail our Stop Loss often.
    2. Stop and Reverse option should be added
    3. Charts such as Hikenashi, Point and figure, Renko should be added

  12. Ranganathan Rajan says:

    Undermining the potential of retail investors we are capable of executing more complex algos.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Ranganathan,

      This is just launched the beta version with the basics. With time the platform will evolve and you will be able to create and test complex algos. We’d appreciate your feedback on what features you’d like to see on the platform and we’ll try to add them soon! 🙂


  13. ashek1 says:

    too costly for 500 a month. Possibly for retail investors price should be less. Or at least for first few months give it free so people can use test and see if it works for them. I would not like to pay for something which I have to learn first.

  14. Ranganathan Rajan says:

    This is not an algo platform at all we need to submit orders manually once the condition trigers, thus is just a signal generator, we can as well use the chart link to get signals. Only feature available here is back testing.

  15. vijay butani says:

    i am zerodha client since two year , your new streal algo system will how work and how it useful for me?

    • Streak says:

      Hi Vijay,

      We request you watch our introductory video and subscribe to our channel. You can write to us on support[@]


      • Karthik K says:


        I am in market for so many years (i m an s/w engineer), but no knowledge on technicals. if i want to use algo need technical skills.

        Whether streak can provide some 5 best back tested strategies that has better profitable margin, so that retail investors like me can use it on day to day basis. I understand the risk is investors responsibility but strategy is good we can try with smaller amount. –> Similar to smallcase zerodha offering, but this is for day to day trades.

  16. Srikanth says:

    Great initiative.

    Don’t see commodities enabled yet, when can we expect it?

  17. vishal says:

    I have few questions.

    1) Suppose I have profitable trading strategies which I have coded and using in amibroker but those are private. Now I want to code them in Streak.
    If I make money with that and I coded them in algo what is the guarantee of my algo not being theft by Streak Owners and Runners. this is a 1st important question .

    2) I work on Streak and develop algo which is profitable. I want to sell those algo signals to other traders for a monthly fee like opentrade in which zerodha can be a 30% revenue partner. Does streak allows to do so ? Or is it planning to do so in near future?

    3) I am MCX trader and if Streak works for Kite then it should work for MCX scrips running in kite. Am I correct here

    4) how much fee monthly or yearly do user needs to pay to avail this facility of Streak ?

    This is very much welcome New Step by Zerodha and my Best Wishes for your new Venture in algo trading.


    • Streak says:

      Hi Vishal,

      Thank you for writing to us. The answers to your questions :
      1.Currently, Streak supports only NSE Stocks and futures. We do not support options and commodity.
      2.Streak is an algo trading platform without coding, you will be able to create your algos with the combination on indicator. Only you can share your algos on social media if you want to . We have no access to your algos.
      3. Monetizing profitable algos requires regulatory approvals, we will let everyone know if we plan to do that.
      4. Pricing :
      Team Streak

  18. chetan says:

    Please work on the pricing for starters. I think 500 Rs / Mo is fine , but only 100 backtest a day. I finished it in just couple of hours.

    May be increase this to 1000/ day.

    Price is currently not worth it.

    Please note , many people will spend a lot of time backtesting than on deployment. Consider this fact in pricing.

    Thank you building a valuable tool for the retail trading community.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Chetan,

      Every backtest run is a cost for, to be able to provide users with fast backtest results we process huge amounts of data at very high speeds. We only charge nominal fee which covers creating ,backtesting and deploying. We are giving 3000 backtests a month at a nominal fee of 500 Rs.


      • chetan says:

        I understand that backtesting(BT) is a cost for you. But please see if you can provide more value to traders in terms of price.

        The reason i say this is because 100 BT is too low for a day, so 3000 BT/ mo is even lower.

        May this is just me.

        You could provide more plans to cater to different kind of traders.


        We have only 20-22 trading days in a month. Hence total backtests available in a month should be 2000-2200.
        How 3000 backtests are possible in a month.
        Does STREAK take AMO orders too?

  19. Jiten Thakkar says:

    Can you please share the benefits of referral program? How a person will get benefit by referring someone to zerodha?

  20. Varun Joshi says:

    Hi! Kudos to team Zerodha !!! for such a client oriented organisation. I must say “Main fida ho gaya…”

    Sir, I have been using Ami broker for daily trading and we have created a Afl called channel breakout or down in which we get popups of stocks which system recognizes. Can we develop a system in Streak.

  21. Rohit Jain says:


    Congrats for the wonderful initiative.
    I have following queries:
    i) We could add maximum of 5 stocks to one algo which is very less. It should be increased.
    ii) If we run a backtest including 5 stocks then 5 token of backtest are consumed so even the paid version which provides 100/ day is very very less.
    iii) Is REF like command available in this.
    iv) It should have a feature like SCANNER where we could have more stocks added.

    • Streak says:


      1. He are working towards some new features, which will allow your to add much more stocks for a single backtest.
      2. We have noted this feedback, it will helpful if you can write to us with your detailed requirements on [email protected] so that our tech team can look into it.


  22. Englishtick says:

    I’m excited to be associated with Zerodha and learned the most about trading during last one year with your association, although I’m doing trading for more than 10 years. Thanks.
    Is there a detailed tutorial about Streak.

  23. Pushkar says:


    Great initiative. What happens when we deploy the algo ? Does it automatically take entry/exit positions according to defined criteria ?

    • Streak says:

      Hi Pushkar,
      After you have deployed, the system checks for entry signals in your algo. The moment an entry signal is generated you will receive a notification on which you will have to act on. Once you have placed your entry order we immediately prompt you to place the SL-M order(based on the stop loss specified in the algo) immediately when the entry order is executed to protect from adverse market moves. When your target profit trigger hits, we immediately send out a notification for you to take profit, your will have to click on the order notification to exit the positions.



    Dear Team,

    I am Zerodha client (YT2758) ,whenever I try to take action on Algo generated alert, it shows Connection error. Pls Help.

    • Streak says:

      Dear Ramesh,

      You might have faced some difficulty in order placement through notification today. We are pleased to inform you that the issue has been fixed. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience caused. We thank you for understanding.


  25. Bhumika says:


    Can I create a simple Algo’s that will buy a particular stock on a regular interval. Eg. I want to buy Reliance or NIFTYBEES every week or month etc?


  26. rowel coelho says:

  27. Vikram Singh says:

    Hi Team,

    Really Awesome initiative. Things like this make you stand apart from the crowd. 3 Cheers.
    I would really appreciate if you could introduce trading in Future Options, looking at signals from it’s Equity Stock.
    Looking forward specially to Nifty Options.

    Could you also Make a special feature on BankNifty Options with scalping trading. It will be a very good feature.
    taking profits on small price changes with a couple dozen lots trading.

  28. Deepak says:

    The arsenal is now complete with nuke capabilities!

    Team RainmatterTech, heartiest congratulations and thanks a zillion tons! Much appreciated.

  29. Deepak says:

    Quick question, are we having plans to expose the signals that are generated through the existing Kite API? Or a new API maybe? How would SEBI treat that?

  30. Revathi says:

    Dear Sir,

    Kindly request to help me to resolve the issue. I had raised the ticket on 28.12.2017. They didnot understand my query. I continuously call to customer care & explained them more than 3 times. They don’t resolve the matter uptill now. I raised a simple query regarding my Trade book. What is the issue to resolve my query. Please help.


  31. kiran says:

    You have limited the options like sma crossover etc, leave that option to be added by us, so that we have so many others apart from which you have added by default, will that be possible. where in we can add our own strategy conditions.

  32. chetan says:

    when can we expect full automation of algos?.
    do we have pass nse exam to get our algos fully automated?.

  33. Sandeep says:

    I want to back test screeners that are available in how can I do it. Choices in streak are basic and ir-relevant.


  34. AB says:

    Hello Sir,

    i havent used it but is it as simple as Chartink or do we need to have coding knowledge too?

  35. chetan says:

    1.Do i have to redeploy intraday algos everyday @ 9.15?
    2.Do i have to keep the browser page open and watch it the for entire duration of a trading day?. if i am on a different tab or working on a different application, will i get a sound alert if algo triggers a trade?.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Chetan,

      Once the algo is stopped , you have to redeploy for it to track signals. You will get alerts with sound if you have the browser window open . We recommend Chrome browser.

      • chetan says:

        Do the intraday algos stop at the eod?

        if so, i will have to redeploy everyday @ 9.15 ?

        please make these queries crystal clear.

        I could not find answers to these doubts in the Faq section also.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Chetan,

      1. Currently you do have to deploy intraday strategies every day (no fixed time like only at 9:15)
      2. Currently you will get notified with sound if the tab with Streak is open(you can be on any other tab, application,etc) and if the tab is closed, you will get a browser notification(it doesn’t make sound).

      We are working towards integration notifications through kite app as-well and it will be available really soon.
      For any further clarifications feel free to write to us at [email protected]


  36. Kiran Sundar says:

    Hats off guys. This completes a very strong portfolio in your arsenal

  37. Vikas says:

    1) can we add LTP in criteria
    2) Egerly waiting for fully automated.
    3) Need few more features

    • Streak says:

      Hi Vikas,

      We are releasing features in stages, and this is the just the start, we will be rolling out new features very soon.
      For your specific requirements kindly drop a mail to [email protected], so that we can understand them and add it to our to-do list for further considerations and development .


  38. Neeru says:

    In algo trading what about the leverage? Is it same as normal day trading or what

    • Streak says:

      Hi Neeru,
      Streak is an extension to Kite. When you are placing the order through the notification from Streak , you are in deed place the order in Kite, you can see the same positions in Kite. The same leverage applies as kite

  39. chetan says:

    Do the intraday algos stop at the eod?

    if so, i will have to redeploy everyday @ 9.15 ?

    please make these queries crystal clear.

    I could not find answers to these doubts in the Faq section also.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Chetan,

      Intraday algos get stopped at 3.15 PM.

      You can redeploy these algos at 3.45 PM to capture the market signals on the next trading day. Hope this clears your doubt.

  40. chetan says:

    do we have pass nse exam to get our algos fully automated?.

  41. Ankit Purohit says:

    I will leave tool praises aside, the tool without doubt best of any other broker offering in India.

    Now coming to feedback/feature request:

    Since announcement, I have back tested a lot of strategies which normally works well in real life however fails miserably on streak mostly due to incomplete exit strategy.

    I would be more happy if exit and stop losses are based on logic/conditions rather than % as calculation of percentage in each stock is difficult. Since the program is under testing, I would be happy to see if you put logical exit (both target and stop loss). This will definitely benefit traders like me who follow rules and exit when certain conditions are met or breached.

    Also, if possible, add conditions such as volume breakout etc. which normally supercede technical conditions and are far more successful.

    Also, if possible, provide few more tested strategies which people can use and tweak with requirements, that will encourage people to participate.

    Last, if possible, provide a platform where such strategies can be shared with others to help the community (I know tradingQ&A already exist but too many threads).

    • Streak says:

      Hi Ankit,
      The following features will be available on streak from 1 March 2018 onwards.
      a. EXIT based on Technical indicators or Trend Reversal, along with Stop loss and Target profit.
      b. We will include additional indicators to the existing list, if you have a wishlist write to us at [email protected]
      c. A detailed description on how to use indicators to create buy and sell strategies will be listed.
      d. Deploying 5 algos on a single click

      Currently, you will be able to share your backtest results on Social Media.

  42. Sanjay Kumar Garg says:

    it is getting error server connection out during back testing 95% of time . Even now i have subscribe also for a month thinking it will work better . could you please help resolve the issue

  43. Sandeep Aggarwal says:

    Great offerings, keep it team Zerodha..


    Dear Nitin,

    I am a client of Zerodha. And I am getting pesky calls from fake Research firms in Indore, Bhopal etc and on further enquiry -those people told me that they got my number from Zerodha. If this is true, it speaks very poorly of data security at your end. I have had my account with icicidirect since 2006, and I never had such calls on my mobile. Please look into this issue. Expecting serious look in to this matter.


  45. xv1621 says:

      We thank you for your support.

  46. Muthusamy says:

    1. This is a good initiative, but need to provide all possible trading or calculation based signal to be generated for intraday and positional. I need details of calculation based on previous day’s high, low, close, Lognormal, current market price.
    2. Indicator based exit signals needed rather than % based
    3. Kindly include options also in algo based on ATM, 1,2,3,4 upto 10 up OTMs and down ITMs (You may refer sharekhan trade tiger for this)
    4. Possibility to include multitime frames examples buy in weeks or months and smaller time frames for intraday.
    5. please include stop and reverse the position.
    6. Need to include BO / cover orders also for intraday and positional

    • Streak says:

      We wanted to let you know the following features will be available on streak from 1 Mar 2018 onwards.
      1. EXIT based on Technical indicators or Trend Reversal, along with Stop loss and Target profit.
      2. We will include additional indicators to the existing list, if you have a wish list write to us at [email protected]
      3. We won’t be able to provide BO and Options at this point but in the future we may include.
      4. Various time intervals will be available.

  47. Prabhakar Kumar says:

    When everyone will get the access of streak or features like it is going to have will be able to correctly predict the market than i think no one will loss in the market simulataneously no one will gain without reason which happens sometimes due to rumour.

  48. Gowthamreddy says:

    If i deployed algo on 09:00AM will it execute or I need to deploy it only after 09:15Am

    • Streak says:

      You can deploy the Algo at any time and during market Hours it will send you notification if signal is generated before 3.15PM.

      All intraday Algos get terminated at 3.15 PM , then you need to deploy again at 3.35 Pm for next day alerts.

      In short you can deploy at 9 am or even 8am.

  51. badgee says:

    Dear Nitin and team, there is a ZIG ZAG indicator in kite. Will you be able to bring it here or in PI .. but the indicator itself need some fine tuning .. presently it repaints a lot. .. and thus is a not a reliable indicator for trading .. but I have seen NON-REPAINTING ZIG ZAG indicator in other platforms … eg. GCI MT4 .. what it does is once the ZIG ZAG arm makes a top or bottom position, it doesn’t change … if the price happens to go the other way, the indicator takes a fresh position .. in this way we can place the trades in the direction of the trend without any ambiguity. Also, for ALGOS it will be one of the best and easy way to make and trade. Is it possible .. if it is, then it will certainly be the sure success for our members.

  53. kumar says:

    hi i have tried streak. it looks promising. i have is it possible to to activate the algo in 5 stocks in one go instead of deploying it one by one it very cumbersome and each day i have to repeat everything again its very time consuming. anyway at the time of order placement we have click to ok again, also it would be nice to have a screener for nifty stocks etc

  54. Saravanan1986 says:

    Hello, Can you help me with the script / coding for Average true range trailing stop loss??? And I see this is available only on Kites and not on Pi..

    • Saravanan1986 says:

      Also is ATR trailing SL available in Streeak?? How to do it? Plz help

      • Streak says:

        Hi saravanan1986,

        Trailing SL is not available on Streak however we will be releasing Strategy based exit on 15 Feb 2018 along be SL% and TP%. Heiken Aishi Candle type will be added in few months.


  55. Digambar J says:

    No option for candle type. I want to use Heiken Aishi candle type.
    Can you add that feature?
    Will it be available to commodities also?

    1.Could you vwap indicator?
    2.Will it be possible to add more than 3 conditions in future?

  57. Rajiv kumar says:

    Dear sir please add nfo like nifty and bank nifty options for trading

  58. Varad says:

    This is a great tool to use for trading. However, there is one thing that I am frequently encountering when I backtest, the tool returns an error saying Action decoding error <bound method Action.get_entry etc etc.

    Not sure if there is a bug in the system or if I am doing something wrong in enlisting the criteria.

  59. Aman says:

    I have constantly been getting an error “UNABLE TO FETCH DATA FOR THE GIVEN BACTEST PERIOD, KINDLY TRY AGAIN WITH SMALLER PERIOD OR AFTER SOME TIME” especially when using supertrend with entry and exit condition. Not only it gives errors but it reduces one count from the aviailable.

    I had raised this with a screenshot to the Streak support but there is just no response. This does not give confidence if this is ready yet for deployment.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Aman, we have check from our end and have not received your email. Could you fwd the mail again to support[@] along with your contact details. We will assist you.

  60. Rushabh Doshi says:

    i can back test my algo successfully , but it isn’t generating alerts.

    1 min candle
    sell = 1 share

    my code:
    close lower than previous open


    .5 sl 2 tp

    why isn’t it working?

  61. Neelima says:

    Looks great. However, I wanted to create an algo for “Volume greater than 10 day SMA Volume”. But this could not be done as it does not take “SMA of 10 day volume”. Please clarify whether this could be done.

  62. binu says:

    backtesting is giving results which are not accurate.

  63. sameer says:

    what is difference between streak alogo and pi alert generate tool ?

    pi alert generate tool
    unlimited scanner
    unlimited Backtest

  64. Vijay says:

    Kindly arrange to Placing order can be automated, rather than giving an alert.
    This requires your immediate attention, please.
    Thanks a lot for this superb initiative.

  65. vidyadhar says:

    how to place positional trades without stoploss and target

  66. shrikant says:

    hi streak team,
    here are some doubts.please clarify them.
    1. can i deploy script specific technical indicators for trading in streak.
    2. can i use streak even while running pi for trading in options.
    3. please provide GANN hilo indicator in the streak platform.

    and, thanks zerodha for creating such awesome platform

  67. Pulkit says:

    Appreciations ….
    But I would like to draw attention upon:-
    (1) the alerts need to be confirmed, which spoils the main moto of timely entry and sticking ourselves to the screens…
    (2) SL and targets are technical levels hence there’s no meaning to be expressed as percentage.

    Though I also realize that it’s a first step which is itself far ahead among others…

    • Streak says:

      Hi Pulkit,
      Automated trading requires regulatory approvals, we will keep you posted once you can automate.
      You can add exit based on strategy or trend reversal. This feature is live.

  68. Sourav says:

    Does any of your algo trading support RENKO charts?
    If yes, then which one. If no, then do you have any specific plan on that?

  69. ANIL says:

    site not opening in laptop, any supporting file?

  70. Sanjay Kumar Singh says:

    Can we take entry (buy) at first green heikinshi candle and reverse/exit the position at first red heikinshi candle on 1hour time frame.

  71. tej pal says:

    how much time will you take to provide alerts based on algo – along with BO/ CO where entry price , target point & SL points can be filled/ modified

    • Streak says:

      BO /CO is not available on platform, you can however exit based on a a strategy eg: trend reversal. You cannot edit the SL – M or Target profit as you have entered it during backtest and tested this strategy before taking the position. The point of testing a strategy is to stick to the rules . However, you can terminate the algo whenever you want.

  72. tej pal says:

    i dont want to backtest , i just want to filter alerts based on indicator , alert would include order sheet under BO/CO in streak

    in pi – plz provide supertrend alert system- popups based or generate alerts

  73. Streak says:

    Streak is a Algo trading platform that helps users understand their strategy by backtesting it.

  74. Anand says:

    I want following things to be clarified,

    1)Whether margin is available for intraday trades when it is done through streak?
    2)Why cant we have two position (both buy and sell) for different shares? i.e two separate algo for different shares.

    Thank you

  76. Samioddin Shaikh says:


    I have a Zerodha account. Could you please just let me know if Streak only gives notification OR does it execute the order on behalf of client if some conditions are met ?

    The reason why i am asking this question is if Streak gives only notification when some conditions met, then in order to execute the order, client needs to be active all the time when market is open.

    In fact, i would like to prefer execution of order automatically without any notification if some conditions are met.

    Please reply me as soon as possible. I am interested to subscribe this service after some backtests.

    • Streak says:

      Streak gives you a one-click actionable notification on which you need to act by clicking on the order window.
      You can look fwd to our notification app which will be released next month.
      Automated trading for retail investors requires regulatory approvals.

    Say i want to keep provision of taking maximum open position in 10 stocks in cash and i have 1L cap, now i want to allot 10k each stock, and order has to be placed in proportionate qtty according to the CMP of the stock, How this can be possible in Streak ?

  79. Varadarajan R says:

    This is very good. But I have some problems in understanding this.

    01. Firstly the menu choices under the login name are not accessible.
    02. The Backtested PL – is the amount for the backtest period total?
    03. What is the meaning of initial capital mentioned as a backtest parameter?
    04. Please do your help video in slower speed since it is too fast to follow.
    05. Many times I get the message Trade Not Happened. What is the meaning of this? In fact I have traded on those securities in Zerodha during the backtest period.
    06. There is no chat provision like smallcase. Please do see if you can provide the same.

    Thanks in advance

    • Streak says:

      Hi Varadarajan,

      Thank you for the appreciation . We have answered your questions below

      01. Firstly the menu choices under the login name are not accessible.
      Pls login to website, we have not released the app.

02. The Backtested PL – is the amount for the backtest period total?
      Yes, its gives you a comprehensive P&L depending on your strategy for the specific stock

03. What is the meaning of initial capital mentioned as a backtest parameter?
      This is hypothetical capital provided for you to backtest on various stocks.

04. Please do your help video in slower speed since it is too fast to follow.

05. Many times I get the message Trade Not Happened. What is the meaning of this? In fact I have traded on those securities in Zerodha during the backtest period.

    congrats to all team for all ur effort n dedication.
    i just open account n started learning.Today i created algo on supertrend it generates alert too but when i saw on chart nothing happens there regarding trend change or something how much accuracy is provided by streak on backtesting and signal generation….Thanks

    • Streak says:

      Hi Shailendra ,Streak is 100% accurate. You have to read the methodology section on the streak platform to get a better understanding on how the platform works. Also you can write to support[@] if you need any clarification. Thank you for the feedback

  81. Ishaq Jeaudeen says:

    Another great efforts by Zerodha in helping the retails traders, Now by creating Algo without code. Its really a great help for part time trader like me. I have following few queries:

    1) Should I keep open the streak, after deployment, for order confirmation?
    2) When I cancel a “buy or sell alert”, from not taking action, it stops the whole Algo. Again I have to deploy the same algo. This should be corrected.
    3) The algo which are created and deployed today are not seen next day. Should I deploy the algo daily? Cant’ it be saved permanently until removed.
    4) A series error in streak. An order was executed on the basis of alert from algo. And SL order was also executed in streak. After a while, SL order was exited in kite to book profit. But I find the position is till open in streak. Why no correlation between streak and kite in this respect? What should one do in this case.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Ishaq ,

      Thank you for the feedback.
      1 . If you have allowed browser notification, if the website is closed and the browser is kept open you will get notified.
      We have released a notification app on playstore.
      2.The platform is built to terminate the algo if you cancel a notification because algo deployment is limited to 50
      3.The MIS algos have a life span of one day, i.e., it gets terminated at 3:15After which you can see it in the stopped section.
      However CNC/Overnight algos have a longer life span and are carried forward to the next day till the cycle is completed.
      4.Streak is an algo trading platform. All order placed through streak are tracked by Streak bots. However if you add or modify positions manually through Kite, these bots do not track them.

  82. Mahesh Saini says:

    Dear Sir

    Nice and welcome that algo is introduced in the zerodha system but it is no available for Option trade so pls do needful for it too.
    Needed valuable advice for it

    Mahesh Saini

    • Streak says:

      Hi Mahesh,
      Backtesting options might not give a clear picture as options expire every week or month . Hence, we have listed Stocks and Futures. Options have a life span of 3 months out of which they are actively traded only for a month.

  94. Umesh Joshi says:

    Hello! Currently for timeframe less than 1 hour, backtesting is allowed only for one month, which is very insufficient. Kindly allow backtesing for at least one year even for smaller time frames. Because for intraday many people are using smaller timeframes, for which we are unable to do backtesting for more than one month

  95. Raja Ambrish says:

    Many features are not available for eg. %age change, High – Previous close. Please add this or allow us to code a little bit.

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,
      Thank you for the feedback . We will be releasing commodity soon, as we are planning to release more than 100 indicators before April end options will take few months.

  99. Chandrasekaran says:

    All the best for your efforts. As positional trader, I want to have one clarification. Suppose I buy one script when SMA 10 crossed above SMA 50 and want to retain till the indicator SMA 10 crossed below SMA 50. Not interested in SL or TARGET PROFIT. Is it possible ? Please clarify.

    • Streak says:

      Hello Sir,
      You can take a CNC/ NRML trade. The system does not allow you create an algo without SL and TP so we suggest you to have deeper targets. The SL-M order is valid only for the day, so on a carry fwd trade you wont be able to place the SL-M. Having said that, if the strategy moves in your favour , you will get the notification provided you have not stopped the algo

  100. Mehamood Pathan says:

    One more thing that will help the swing traders especially is the GTC (good till cancellation orders). Would love to have it too. Any possibility of introducing it?

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,

      Thank you for your feedback.
      GTC in kite will take time. How ever you can create algos and deploy it in CNC. When the signal is generated , a notif will be generated for you to take action.

  104. Ajay Sati says:

    Hello Nitin
    Thanks for bringing this. Looks great.
    are there any possibilities to bring intraday Open Interest for the future contracts?

  120. Raj S says:

    Hello Streak,

    The web based interface is amazing, and back-testing is fast. There are two things which are needed for better trading results:

    (1) Trailing Stop Loss: Any trading system lacking TSL will not give optimum results. Cut the losses short, but let your profitable trades win. So please do add option for TSL.

    (2) Stop Loss based on ATR and other parameters, not just %: Stop Loss is where the bottomline or business expenses are realized. Please work on Stop Loss flexibility, that is more important to any profitable trader.

    (3) Ability to place trades with timing of market: I avoid trading during first and last 30 minutes, this helps me avoid getting stop hunted. I bet you’d understand that intraday is all about timing, and so do add timing filter for trades.


    • Streak says:

      Hello Sir,
      Thank you for the feedback.

      Trailing Stop Loss: We currently place SL-M orders which protects traders from downside. Trailing SL will be released in future.

      You can also have entry and exit based on strategies along with mandatory SL and TP%. You can add upto 5 entry and Exit based conditions.

      Price and Time based indicators will be released by April end.

    For trying out streak, I am trying to run a sample MACD based strategy NIFTY 18 MAR FUT. And when I back test, it is showing Rs 10908 profit from 9 trades (18 including buy and sell). However, when I turn on the “Brokerage” switch, it is showing Rs 4000 Loss. How is this possible?

    Is it an issue with quantity that I entered? I am trying for 75 (1 lot)

    Please advise what I should adjust.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Rave,
      Can you kindly write the details of your strategy along with your contact details to support [@] and we will help you out.
      Also, for 1 lot , you have to enter 75 in quantity.

    A clarification on working of Futures in Streak.
    It is mentioned that we can run back test and deploy algo for multiple instruments.
    If so, for Futures when lot size is different, how can we do it? For instance NIFTY and BANKNIFTY both together.
    Or we have to do one by one?

    • Streak says:

      Hello Sir,
      You have to enter quantity instead of lot size eg: if you are backtesting nifty then you have to enter 75 in quantity and in multiples, depending on how many lots you want to trade.

    It is so disappointing that this feature can not give sound alert or an alert in mobile. As a web developer I know that everything is in place in terms of code and it would require very small amount of effort to send a sound alert or even a message in phone. This is a low hanging fruit with such high pay off. I hope you implement it soon. It would be a great value addition.
    Most of the people who are attracted towards this automated algo trading are the ones who do not want to or can not stick to their screens all day. This feature is a solution to that but its not usable until sound alert or message alert comes into picture. I am anxiously waiting for your reply. Thanks for the great feature though.

    • Streak says:

      Sound alert is enabled in the app, can you send out a mail with your mobile model details along with the android app version to support[@] to help you better.

    • Vijay says:

      Also if you can download a Streak notification app for your android mobile and that will give you a notification. To me, that helps.

  137. Revanth K says:

    I would like to appreciate the efforts of zerodha/Streak team to make algo trading available to retail traders. I was trying to do back testing using one of my strategies based on day candles. I had observed the following while writing the algo/backtesting.

    1. I want to put a condition that today volume at 3:15 pm shall be more than last 10 days EMA of volume which is not available at present. Is there any chance to add this feature in future.
    2. While back testing based on 1 day candle, the alerts are generated at 9:15 am in the next morning after the day signal is generated. Is there any chance to generate a signal at around 3:15 pm if the conditions of the algo are met so that we can enter the position on the same day instead of next morning.
    3. The number of candle stick patterns are very limited. Is there any chance to add other patterns like marubozu, hammer, hanging man etc in future.
    4. If i want to make a buy trade based on the engulfing pattern, is there any option to put a condition that last 7/10 days trend should be downward.

    Will be grateful if u can reply on the above.

    Hi ,

    Very nice read and good product .

    My question

    I got a buy alert for hdfc bank , while back testing i had put 1% profit target and .5% risk . So if the stock falls below .5% of my risk Does SL get triggered ? Or Should we place SL order seperatly ?

    • Vth says:

      So the Order is placed only at MIS . Any thought if you will include the BO and it autocalulate the % of SL and % of Target exactlty as i tried in backtest ?

  139. Vijay says:

    This is an excellent initiative from Zerodha. Need a clarification on the process. We set up an algo and deploy it. Streak will give a notification once the entry criteria is met and from the alert you can action that. Now you can see the stop loss displayed in the deployed algo screen. How can we enter this stop loss order into the system? Should I do it directly in Kite screen? If i do that, will streak keep track of that trade?

    Thanks for the great initiative.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Vijay,
      Thank you for the feedback. You just click on the SL-M order from Streak and it will go sit in kite order book. Its basically kite order book. Check out our demo videos on youtube, its explained

    • Streak says:

      Hi Vijay,

  140. Hemant says:

    Well done! Hats off to your Team.

    1) Please could you enable Condition for (both Entry/Exit) whereby test of any previous bar(s) is allowed?
    Example(AB): Ref(AroonUp(25), -1) == 0

    2) Please could you provide an interface to write code (any scripting language of Zerodha’s choice)? Thereby users who can code can code, those who cannot (or do not want to) can use the human-friendly interface.

    3) Please could you allow users to code custom-indicators in Kite-Charts?

    Thank you.

    • Streak says:

      Streak is a coding free platform. We are in the process of adding more than 100 technical indicators and chart patterns by end of April along with candle patterns.

      • Hemant says:

        Therefore, how can a condition(s) be tested for a given previous bar(s)?
        Let current Bar be N.
        Close(N) < Low(N-1) AND Close(N-1) < Low(N-2)

        Possible in Streak? If yes, how? Please advise.

        Thank you.

  141. Revanth Kl says:

    I would like to appreciate the efforts of zerodha/Streak team to make algo trading available to retail traders. I was trying to do back testing using one of my strategies based on day candles. I had observed the following while writing the algo/backtesting.

    1. I want to put a condition that today volume at 3:15 pm shall be more than last 10 days EMA of volume which is not available at present. Is there any chance to add this feature in future.
    2. While back testing based on 1 day candle, the alerts are generated at 9:15 am in the next morning after the day signal is generated. Is there any chance to generate a signal at around 3:15 pm if the conditions of the algo are met so that we can enter the position on the same day instead of next morning.
    3. The number of candle stick patterns are very limited. Is there any chance to add other patterns like marubozu, hammer, hanging man etc in future.
    4. If i want to make a buy trade based on the engulfing pattern, is there any option to put a condition that last 7/10 days trend should be downward.

    Will be grateful if u can reply on the above. Please reply

    • Streak says:

      Thank you for the feedback . We have answered your questions.
      1. We are in the process of adding more than 100 technical indicators and 30 chart patterns by end of April along with candle patterns, we will cover most of the popular indicators.
      2. Only after a candle stick is closed a signal is generated with the open of next candle.
      3. 30 chart patterns by end of April.
      4. This is still under discussion. We will keep you posted.

  142. K A Raj says:

    I want all Bill Williams Indicators (Alligator, Awesome Oscillator and Gastor Oscillator and etc) Please I am depend on them purely.

  143. rajendra singh says:

    Thanks for this great initiative.But in the paid version only 50 live algos at a time.If i want to get signals of all the F&O stocks then it is not possible.Is there any possibilities to see at least 100 live algos in paid version in coming months?

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,
      Backtesting is enhanced from 100 to 200 per day for paid subscribers and live deployment means checking for signals every second depending on the strategy.
      Every time you click on deploy or backtest there is cost associated with it. We might extend the limits in the coming months.
      Thank you for understanding.

  144. Lokesh kumar says:


    Pleas add stochastic indicators also.

    And if we want to trade on high/low,
    Then there should be an option of plus and minus values in high and low buying and selling.

    Lokesh kumar

  145. Vijay says:

    Thanks to Zerodha for giving such a great tool to retail investors. I was using this for last 3 – 4 days and would like to highlight these feedback.

    1. 200 backtest is too less. At least for paid version you should increase to 500. Is there a possibility make it 1400 per week? Right now it resets every day. In case I did not use 200 in a day, it is gone. Can we accumulate it and reset on a weekly basis instead of daily basis?
    2. Is it possible to refer a higher time frame candles in conditions? I want to trigger a bullish condition in 30 minutes only if 1 hour is in bullish. Is it possible?
    3. Why should we have to deploy MIS algos daily? Once I deploy, it should be in deployed status till I manually stop it.
    4. There should be a provision to ignore an alert. If a buy alert generated and then we look at the chart and decided not to take it, it should be possible to ignore. Now, if I cancel it, the algo stops and I have to deploy it again.
    5. While backtesting, is there a possibility to show the percentage profit in each transactions. This will help us to identify issues easily and tweak them.
    6. Currently it allows only the number of shares. Many time we will go with a fixed amount. For ex. If I have 1 Lakh, i may want to invest 20,000 in 5 different shares. Can we specify the amount instead of number of shares.
    7. Will it be possible to enable/disable Exit criteria and entry criteria? This will help us to quickly backtest and tweak the algo.
    8. Order type is always defaulting to MIS. This is not correct. It should have the last selected value. If I tweaked algo and press backtest button, it always uses MIS and if I am testing for 10 stocks basket, I lost 10 counts from todays quota of 200. Keep the order type in both create algo page and result page.
    8. Same with period also.
    9. There is some bug when you enter number values in criteria. Sometimes it gets stuck and we have to delete the algo and recreate it.
    10. Can we deploy alogs in basket level? Even if you create a basket of 20 stocks, currently the deployment happens in stock level. I have to manage 20 deployments which is cumbersome.
    11. A deployed algo should never stop automatically. Many times i see it with a comment algo completed and it stops. Again we have to redeploy it. It should stop only when I manually stop it.
    12. Algo page should to redesigned. Currently it displays just one algo with details in the left side. There is lots of real estate wasted in the right side. We have to keep scrolling one by one which is a pain.
    13. We should have search functionality in algo page.
    14. Is it possible to link the zerodha chart from here? That will be very helpful.

    Thanks a lot to Zerodha for this initiative.

    • Streak says:

      Thank you for the feedback.

      1. We have enhanced the limit form 100 to 200 recently. In future we may increase the limit.

      2. We are in the process of adding technical indicators and chart patterns. You will be able to do it in future.
3. You can use CNC if you want the algorithms to be live till the condition is met.

      4. Because deployments is limited, once you cancel an alert the algo is stopped so you can utilise it for another algo
5. We may add it in future.

      6. No.

      7. Exit condition is optional, only SL and TP are mandatory.
8. Saving time frame and order type will be enabled soon
9. We need additional info on this , do write to support[@] with the algo details and we will look into the same

      10. You can select and click on top Deploy button which selects all.

      11. The algo cycle runs twice post which gets stopped. 

      12. We are in the process of redesigning UI of the platform.
13. Search is work in progress, by April end It should be live 

      14. No.


  146. D.Omprakash says:

    Hi Nithin,
    can anyone say how to code for 1 day ago, 2 day ago candles. Because mentioned only as previous day candle
    Say for eg. I want yesterday candle high greater than 1 day ago candle high. In the Streak drop down only previous candle option is there. Please reply.

  147. RAVI DAHIYA says:

    I tested algo for MPHASIS for 16th March 2018 with RSI below 15. It showed only 1 trade and where on chart I can see 3 times easily it could have made profits. Not worth it software. I am depressed with its results. Also profit we could have made more. In kite web, Zerodha should think about bringing indicator based alerts too. That would prove more beneficial. Why charge 500 Rs. per month when you can not make 100% fool proof system.

    • Streak says:

      We request you to check out the methodology on the help section and understand how backtest is calculated and run on the platform. If you need additional help do write to support[@] and we will help you with the same

      The platform is free to use till 30 Jun 2018. No charge is applied till then from Streak.

  148. Narendra says:

    When we create algo that time not getting NIFTY spot contract. how to get the same for testing.

  149. Muruka says:

    Few queries
    I have been testing streak for last couple of days few issues/observations

    – Tough i could see my algo conditions are matching as per kite interface. Sometimes the alerts does not come
    – Alerts are late by 2-3 minutes many times even after matching conditions as per kite interface
    – Is there any limit on the maximum alerts per day or something ?. I have all the reason to suspect that as after 12.35PM no signals got generated (manually i checked. It should have generated many!).

  150. Muruka says:

    ok. I got an answer for 3rd point. If i don’t act (expire/cancel) then that script will be terminted!. That looks really bad. Please give control to user when to disable a script.

  151. Streak says:

    Hi Muruka
    Alerts are sent immediately after the signal is generated at the close of the candle. It depends on your internet connection and the device type ( laptop /mobile ) for you to receive the alert.

    We request you to write to support[@] with the algo details.

  152. Tom godwin says:

    On 19 the March I deployed a stock and I got the value end of the day and when I back tested today the same algorithm on the same date it is giving a different value , is this a bug.

  153. Chandra Mohan Baloni says:

    Not able to back test on index like nifty and bank nifty. pls provide

  154. Streak says:

    Dear Muruka,

    The alerts are sent when the candle’s are completely formed. So if signal is generated for a 5min candle at 12:15pm you will receive alerts once the candle is formed i.e at 12:20pm, as the 12:15pm candle get completely formed at 12:20pm.
    If you don’t receive alerts at all or you think some alerts have been missed, do write to us at support[@] so that we can clarify any issues.
    There is also no limit on the notifications which get sent, but once you get a notification and you don’t act on it(ignore it), you will not get any further notification for that algo.


  155. Streak says:

    Dear Sir,

    During a day multiple signals get generated but when you run backtest, the algo might have already taken positions during the backtest so it might not trigger for the same signals. We request your to write to support[@], so that we can clarify your doubts and assist your better.


  156. Streak says:

    Dear Chandra,

    We had enabled all nifty indices, but people started deploying them to the market.
    Because of this confusion, we have currently blocked them, you will be able to use it from April.


    • Vijay says:

      Still not able to back test. Also I tried to deploy it 1 lot. But, the deploy button is disabled. I need to test on BN. Please enable ASAP.

  157. neeraj says:

    Nitin sir, i have a partner account with your company and in place to calcification of company’s policy your team closed my account without any information to me this is what zerodha does with their marketing partners?..

  159. ROY JOSEPH says:


    Would it be possible to add the following, please?

    1) Add Stochastics indicator.
    2) Option for Time range for Algos for MIS/intraday trading (ie. start time and end time, for eg start at 11.00 AM after market starts in the morning and ends at 2.30 PM before close of trading hours) so as to avoid many false signals.
    3) Option for Trailing Stop percentage or amount
    4) Option for stopping Algos after certain percentage/amount of loss or gain on Capital employed for the Algo.

    Many thanks.

    • Streak says:

      Hello Sir,
      We are in the process of adding Technical Indicators and Chart Patterns including the Time based algos. However we would not be able to add trailing SL at the current stage. You can expect the changes by April end.


    Sir please add maximum profit and maximum loss

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,
      The P&L curve and the downloadable transaction table has all the trades. The Max drawdown represents the maximum loss from a peak to a trough.

  161. Karthik says:


    I am in market for so many years (i m an s/w engineer), but no knowledge on technicals. if i want to use algo need technical skills.

    Whether streak can provide some 5 best back tested strategies that has better profitable margin, so that retail investors like me can use it on day to day basis. I understand the risk is investors responsibility but strategy is good we can try with smaller amount. –> Similar to smallcase zerodha offering, but this is for day to day trades.

    Karthik K

    • Streak says:

      Hi Karthik,
      Streak exactly solves the issue which you are facing. We request you to check out our youtube channel for more info on how to create trading algos. These are just 2 min videos that helps you create algos.
      Also, we have also put some sample algos on the dashboard page to help all our users.
      To create and backtest a strategy it takes less than 1 min. You can write to support[@] for additional help.

  162. Neelima says:

    Do we have a trailing stop loss as well?

  163. Neelima says:

  166. Santosh says:


    Appreciate the Initiative by streak team.:

    Following are some point can be considered to add value :

    1.Adding time based Entry Exit criteria.

    2.Automatic order placement instead of alerts it would be great otherwise it will become another initiative like pi automation which is not much accepted by traders.

    This is kind of must have feature and success/failure of this steak is completely depending on this.

    3.Apple app is not available for alert so far,hope it will be available before trial ends

    • Streak says:

      Hi Santosh,
      Time based entry and exit will be available shortly and full fledged IOS app will be available by 30 Jun 18.
      Automated trading for retail investors requires regulatory approval. Once we get the approval we will let you know.

  167. Amar says:

    The candle interval automatically resets to 1 hour though only 5 minutes interval was specified.

  168. jayaraj says:

    Hello sir, I am working in Zerodha Kite using indicators, but still i have not get any profit. I now only heard about Streak, which is happy news for me, but I have not enough knowledge to how to use algos like cross over or higher than etc, pls tell me that where I get the experts best algos or I want to pay any money to get the algos?.

    • Streak says:

      Hi jayaraj ,

      We have created a youtube channel just for beginners. Streak is very easy to use. Kindly write to support[@] for more information. You can also check out the demo and live trading videos on youtube.

  169. Lijoo says:

    Since Pivot Point is available in streak, please make a video for buy/sell.


  170. Vijay says:

    P & L column is not getting populated in deployment screen. Did the trading done through the alert and i have seen streak tracks the trade. Looks like now it is not happening. It gave an alert to do the stop loss order and executed that also from streak. It is not giving the P & L or the target price. Please look into this.

  171. Vijay says:

    Is there a place we can see all historical alerts? Is it possible to send the alert to an email id?

    • Streak says:

      Currently, the email feature is not available. However, you can go to deployed page and select stopped( instead of live ) on the left corner of the screen and check the details.

  172. Vijay says:

    I see some of my Algos are getting expired. What conditions they are getting expired? Is there a way we can prevent this?

    • Streak says:

      You must have selected MIS during deployment. These algos expire at 3.15 PM everyday. Using CNC will keep the algo live till the condition is met.

  173. Adwait says:


    I created my Algo and also deployed it, but I see following challenges

    1. The platform is not able to identify Exit criteria mentioned and its not giving an Exist notification.
    2. Once a notification is given and if I dont take any action on it, it doesnt give me next notification at all. Example : It gave me ‘Buy’ notification on Banknifty and I missed the opportunity, now it still shows that notification and did not gave me next signal today in spite of Algo criteria been satisfied.

    I understand its in Beta, but just wanted to put in my feedback as I intend to use it in future.

    The way it should work is,
    If the criteria is met, execute the order. When exit criteria is met, exit from the order placed by that algo.

    Thats it, arent my expectation simple and reasonable ????

  174. Streak says:

    Hi Adwait,

    1. We request you to kindly check the methodology section on the streak platform. Once the notification is generated, if you missed acting on the notif you can stop the algo and redeploy again to get the notification when the condition is met again. The notification are live for 5 mins once its generated.
    2. Entry and exit criteria defined will generate signal and send you notification provided the condition is met. It is also important to note if you have deployed with MIS / CNC .
    Kindly send a mail to support[@] with your algo details and we can send you the details on the notif.
    3. Streak is algo trading platform and not auto trading. Automated trading requires regulatory approvals which we are working on.

  175. Manish says:


    This is really very good application.

    Can we auto trigger BUY and SELL trades ?

    I mean once expected signal is ready, why do i need to click buy or sell.

    It should automatically generate trades according to my criteria of Stop Loss and Target Profit

  176. YE2959 says:


    Please add Range bars also. All my strategies are based on 0.2Rs range bars. Will it be possible?

    Thank you in advance.

    • Streak says:


      Pls write to support[@] with your specifications . We will let you know if its currently possible to or if we are planning to add in the future.


  177. Vijay says:

    Can we use streak as an alert system for tracking entry and exit? Here I have to use streak for entry, then only it will trigger the exit. I want to use BO for entry. Then I cannot use streak for entry. I will go directly to Zerodha and enter a BO. Now, I want streak to still alert me when the exit condition reaches. How can I do that? If it is not possible now, can we enhance it?

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,
      As you have correctly stated, Streak starts tracking the exit only when its entry of a position is through Streak. The feature that you have requested may be provided at a later stage.

  178. Manjunath says:

    Eagerly waiting for the Renko feature please add soon.

  179. Streak says:

    Dear Manjunath,
    We will be releasing hekinashi on 25th of April. However Renko will be added later.

  180. Jose says:

    Streak server/site is down at least 10-20% of the time. Now the server is down and I am unable to get the login page. I have faced this issue at least 4-5 times in the past 5 days.

    Thanks to Zerodha & Streak

  184. Sujata says:

    Exit condition(optional) working automated or manually ?

  185. Sandeep says:

    Algo trading means it should be lightening fast. But Streak allows me to enter a trade (or give notification) for a given candle at its open/high/low/close. I need to trade whenever a condition is met regarding the price of scrip even if it is in the middle of candle. So many times a trade gets completed (Using other platforms) in between a candle’s open and close using an algo. It’s a necessity for High Frequency Trading. Kindly add this feature to Streak.
    Is it possible to place a Bracket order for a scrip using Streak’s algo? If yes, how and if no then Kindly add this feature too to Streak.

    • Streak says:

      Streak is an algo trading platform and not auto trading ( we are working on getting automation approval ) .
      If you select 5 min candle, the algo would require the complete 5 min candle to be formed to calculate the signals. As per methodology it generates signal at the open of the next candle ( in this case the open of the next 5 min candle ) because the candle interval selected is 5 min .

      BO is not available on streak, we may add it in the future.

  186. Kaleem says:

    is there tutorial video on how to create algo for Spertrend and Heikin Ashi candle

  187. Kaleem says:

    eg. buy when heikin ashi candle turns green and sell when it turns red. is there any tutorial video

    • Streak says:

      Heikin-Ashi Candlesticks are an offshoot from Japanese candlesticks. The resulting candlestick filters out some noise in an effort to better capture the trend. You still have to use indicators on it . Its different from Renko

  188. Thambidurai says:

    Is it applicable on derivatives also like Nifty Options?
    Is it possible to give command to place order depending upon today’s OHLC price levels with or without even historical data? i.e. Sell command IF Open and High are equal / Buy IF Open and Low are equal in the option chain

    Appreciate the Initiative by streak team.:

    Following are some point can be considered to add value :

    hi, thanks zerodha & streak for this cause, i tried back testing with position as CNC, but it seems that it is not working, when i see in back test excel file it asks for position to be close by 3.15pm, & next time when conditions is matching than again it asks for open the position & same way on that day 3.15pm position is getting close. can you please look into this.

    At the outset I personally thanks Zerodha for creating algo trading system-STREAK for its users. I would like to know when we can auto trade in Commodity also through this .I hope Zerodha is working over it. Great job!

    • Streak says:

      Hello Charushree,
      Thank you for the feedback. Commodity will be added soon to the platform, however auto trading requires regulatory approvals for retail trader. We are working on it and will keep you posted. We have made currency futures live on the platform.

    Can i build simple multi-time frame algorithm that can say compare daily high to last 10 weeks high and execute on daily and sell similarly in live market before the close assuming wvap near close as closing.

    • Streak says:

      Currently we don’t provide week time frame. We allow comparison between intra day time frames with day candles. Week time frame we will add soon.

    Hi ,

    I am using Streak since a month . Its is Sooper add on to retail traders . And i hope it gets automated in near future .

    I have below point to bring to your notic

    1) At the moment orders are executed at market price . Can we have the option to change it to limit price ?
    2)Why cant we send the the Target price orders as soon as the SL order is generated ? A time gap of 1 min makes hug difference .
    3) Any target date for the release of automated Trading without manual intervention ?

    Regards ,

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,
      Algos are triggered at market price because the position has to be entered. Limit price may result in incomplete orders or even order not getting fulfilled. For most of the F&O stocks liquidity is high and the slippage is usually less.
      We are working on triggering the TP order after the SL-M order. This feature will be out in the next release.
      Automation may take time. We will let you know as soon as we get the approval

    I have been running backtest. Results not matching with manual run. Not understanding how prices used for entry and exit. There should be live webinar to address issues.

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,

      We request you to check our help section, it contains the methodology used to enter and exit.
      Live webinar is scheduled in July

  204. Vaibhav Chawla says:

    Hello Streak.. You guys have come up with a great package..

    i did not find any option where if I want to select a condition that if price crosses high of “last 3 candles” then it should buy that stock.. There is an option called “prev (n candle)” but it only reads 1 specific candle and does not read “a range of previous n candles”. Can you please help !!

    I got revert from one of your team members that
    “We currently only support “opening range”, we will soon adding “range prev N” which will solve your use case, we appreciate your patience”

    My query : Is there a tentative timeline for getting that “range prev n” added as I’m in dire need of this.

    Also what is opening range ?..can you please explain so that I can try. i did not find such option.

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,
      Opening range
      Example: To enter when the high of a 5min candle crosses above first 30 mins of markets high, you can do it as:
      Select candle interval as 5min and then
      Entry: “Close crosses above opening range(high,0,15min)”
      Hope this helps.

      We are in the process of adding features. We are launching the full fledged app on 1 Jun 2018 and a revamped website too.

      We should have more technical indicators added By 1 July 18.

      • Vaibhav says:

        Thanks Streak..

        A couple of more questions :-)..Hope you would not mind :

        As you are coming up with full fledged app can I expect following additions :

        1. Range prev N
        2. “And” conditions does not take more than 5 or 6 conditions at a time…Can it be extended to “15” conditions atleast a time
        3. backtest should happen for last “24 months” – currently , I believe is only for “3 months”

        The idea is that new features should be based around price action and not just technical indicators.

    How much margin leverage will have in algo streak.

  206. Vijay says:

    Is there any issue with data to back test. Sometimes I get 3 months data for back testing 5 minutes strategy. But suddenly it becomes 1 month. Why is this happening?

  207. Vijay says:

    What are the different plans you have? I saw 500 plan with 50 deployments. Do you have any other plans, with less deployments?

  208. Jayachandran says:

    I could not place any order from streak app.
    Only able to view the alerts , could not take any action in streak app.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Jayachandran,

      We have just launched the app on playstore. Search for Streak Algo and install the new app.
      Please note the App is in Private Beta Testing and requires android 5 or above.
      We value any feedback that will help us improve the product.

  209. Arpit says:

    while deploying i get option of frequency from 1 to 5, what is this?

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,

      Frequency defines the number of algo cycles ( entry and exit ) eg: Frequency 1 means one entry and one exit and algo goes to completed state.

  210. Vijay says:

    Lots of enhancements. Big Thank You.

    Initial feedback.

    1. Algo Screen is redesigned which is good. Now we can search. But we can search only one algo at a time. We should be able to key in a string and it should display all algo’s matching that string. In the search box, a drop down comes up and it displays even the deleted Algos. Not sure it is a bug or functionality.
    2. Previously we were able to stop an Algo from algo screen. Now we can only deploy. Stop button is gone. We have to go to the deployment screen and then stop and then go to algo page, which not a good user experience.
    3. While deploying I could see a new parameter frequency. What is this for?
    4. We should be able to select multiple algos and stop. Now we can stop only one by one.
    5. In the back test details screen we got new field trigger type which help us to identify how each trade got executed. This is good. But getting into that screen was more intuitive before.
    6. Search in deployment screen, just highlights the rows it matches. Is it possible to bring all of them to the beginning of the list? Also only small letter search works there.

  211. Sheetal says:

    I am existing Zerodha account holder. How can I subscribe and use Algo Trading method. Do I need to purchase some software or subscription?

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,

      If you are an existing client of Zerodha then just use the kite credentials to login to website and you are ready to go. Check out our youtube channel and you can create your first algo within a min. Do write to support[@] for more info.

  212. Vijay says:


    When will you be giving the functionality to compare the indicators from two time periods?

  213. Anand says:

    When we can expect renko charts?

  214. mahesh says:

    How can I can use Algo Trading in MCX

  215. Vijay says:

    Is there a way to do limit order from Streak? It looks like there is huge difference in the price streak recommends and we actually get. Today banknifty algo triggered a sell at 9:45:45 to sell at 26397. Took the trade at 9:46:08. But the price sold was 26331. Now you do a back test, it will nicely show the sell price as 26397 and algo will be in profit. But in reality, the stop triggered and algo was in loss. How can we prevent happening this?

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,
      Limit order is not available on Streak for the reasons mentioned below.
      1. Limit orders sometimes result in Incomplete orders 2. Limit orders may not get executed at all.
      Streak does not recommend price, the indicators determines the entry and exit of an algo along with SL and TP.
      Looking at todays banknifty candle stick charts. Banknifty lost 150 in 15 mins at the open and 225 points from yesterdays close. When we have huge and sudden movement in the market the slippage might increase.

  216. Nitin M says:

    Its too good to be part of Zerodha. I have very recently become a Zerodha member. I have gone through all the conversations on this blog. Request you to help out with simple Streak strategies for F&O beginners. You can publish them as likely profitable strategies and which can be deployed instead of going through the videos.

  217. pt says:

    While Deploying Algo it ask for order type (cnc /mis) and Algo cycle
    What is Algo cycle?

  218. Vijay says:

    Is there a way we can stop multiple algos in one go? I created an algo with 20 stocks. All were live. After 2 – 3 days, looking at the behavior, i want to do some tweak to that algo. It will not allow me to change the algo since I have already deployed it. Now, I have to go to 20 algos and then stop each one of them. Is there an easier way?

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,
      As of now you have to manually click on every algo to stop it, if you have used MIS during deployment then all algos get terminated at 3.20PM

  219. Suman says:

    When will mcx will be added to streak in specific crude oil…any definite dates….
    Thank you..

  220. JACOB says:

    Hi… I have put algo cycle as 5… what does it indicate?

    • Streak says:

      Dear Sir,
      It means after the first the entry condition is met , the algo waits for exit condition to be satisfied and then waits for second entry for the same condition and the respective exit . Like this the algo will be live for 5 cycles and then goes to completed state after satisfying 5 entries and 5 exits . If it’s MIS order the ago gets terminated at 3.20 PM irrespective of the algo cycle.

  221. PARAG says:

    I am logged in to streak which shows only 50 backtests instead of 100 as promised.

    I want to deploy the algo in live makt…

    but the lacuna in streak is that it need s to be back tested then only one can deploy ..

    I have created also back tested in the night (0nly 50 back tests) after 12 am..

    i am done for the day.. since no back tests left cannot directly deploy already back tested also..

    pls rectifyt he issue …. and increase backtests in my account immediately…

    since morning nearly 7 scrips have given signals as per algo …. i hade to watch each chart personlly hence could not take trade..

    Please do the needful urgently..

    Saw your new Pricing. Looks like Free trial is only for 7 days with 50 backtests and 5 Algos. After 7 days the minimum we have to pay is 500. Is there a way to continue with 50 backtests and 5 algos?

      These plans have been finalised as of now. Once free trial is completed you will have to subscribe to basic plan to avail 200 backtest a day along with 25 live deployments. The basic plan is free till 31 July 2018.

  223. K Padma says:

    Dear Streak team,
    I have backtested ‘n’ number of times and tested in real time too.
    Indeed its so easy and more user friendly.
    Your innovative ideas on algo trading that too without based codes are really marvellous and I really enjoyed it.
    But humbly I wish to point one thing and consider it in serious way.
    Since its not automated, though its possible that is on entry / exit it needs a human touch (of course I understood its not legal to do that) I am afraid whether the aim of streak can be fulfilled currently.
    Please don’t take this as negative comment. Like me many will be happy if it is automated though it is not possible currently.

    • Streak says:

      Hi Padma,
      Thank you for the feedback. We are working on getting the approval, however we cannot promise the timeline.
      Alternatively, you can download the full fledged mobile app of Streak from playstore. Create, Backtest, Deploy and take positions on the go. The final version of the app will be released on 20 Jun 2018.

  224. K Padma says:

    Please include MCX at the earliest.

  225. Vijay says:

    I am confused about your maximum number of deployments/Algos in your plan. In the pricing page it says 25 algos are allowed in your 500 plan. One algo can have multiple scrips. In your previous answer you mentioned it is 25 deployments. Which one is correct?

    • Streak says:

      Hi Sir,

    The new streak platform looks awesome.

    Could you please add Ultimate Oscillator and Chande Momentum Oscillator to the list of technical indicators.


    • Srikanth says:

      I logged into streak this morning and created a new algorithm to backtest. But, when I click on the backtest button, it navigates me to backtests page and I don’t see any anything thereafter and the page stays blank forever. Can you please let me know what am I doing wrong here.

    Why am not getting alert sound for new notification in new app?

    Streak is good but it has no weekly and monthly chart type and commodity.

  235. Rajesh says:


    I have subscribed to streak basic pack. But my limits always show 200/200 and 25/25 and backtest does not work.

    I don’t know what do. I have created three algo and whenever i click backtest it show empty tables.

    Please help

  236. Rahul says:

    I gave stoploss 0.5 % and target profit 1.5%. After backtesting the algo some script go to loss up to -12% where as some go to profit up to 14%. Why?How is it possible after setting stoploss 0.5 % and target profit 1.5%

  237. Jayakumar says:

    Congrats to continued innovation in zerodha products. I would like to give my views on Zerodha streak with pros and cons.
    1) Data accuracy
    2) Simple & Elegant user interface
    3) Backtesting
    4) Continuous Monitoring as Deployment


    1) Multiple time frame analysis not there ( need within single algo)
    Eg: With Daily trend in visual uptrend, we can play long with minor frame say 30 mins or 15 mins in the same direction of daily trend or vice versa (Long in 30 mins close above Super trend when daily close above super trend)

    2) Arithmetic operations, max, min and many more functions not available
    Eg: a) How to find full gap up/down stocks with % change?
    Today’s close 2% up than Yesterday close with today’s open greater than yesterday high
    b) Stocks trading in narrow range for say 10 days with high & low within 5% of median

    3) Higher than with equal and Lower than with equal logic not available

    4) 5 algo conditions is very less for a good algo
    Eg: a) minimum condions meeting volume, higher high and higher low for consecutive three days, moving average or super trend crossover needs more than 5 conditions
    b) Stocks closing above 50 day high, 100 day high or new 52 weeks high

    5) Most of Basic candlestick reversal pattern not available

    6) Poor Editability in already created algo
    Eg: Indicators or close /open or other parameters can’t be edited in previously created Algo conditions. You have to delete the conditions and redoing again is frustrating.

    In my view, Algos works in three ways Screening, Execution and Monitoring. Screening is most important of all three comparatively. Zerodha Streak algo screening is still primitive i believe. Finding entry with meeting conditions is tedious one and is very important. ZERODHA STREAK LACKS THIS.

    Above said needed functions are available in other screeners in market. They may be passive in nature, but they have good functions/operations to get the conditions met to give alerts and they are affordable.

    And more over Sentinel can be incorporated into Zerodha streak.

    Zerodha streak can be unique but it has to blend the best in their systems to keep thriving.

    All the Best
