3. Stock price on Kite holdings shows exchange with higher close price

Holdings on Kite uses the last traded price (LTP) to show the value of your investment. Until now we showed the LTP on NSE. But we had cases where our customers lost out on money by selling without seeing where the price was higher. This has now changed. We no longer have a “default exchange“, but use the exchange with the higher previous close to show you the investment value.

    I have been with Zerodha now for more than three years and the experience has been great not counting the amount I have saved on brokerages : ) I have a suggestion and I call it “The Yogi Way of Investing”.
    This has been necessitated because as a long time investor I have gone through a lot of heartburn when I see my holdings during these turbulent times. When the holdings are green I am elated and when its in the red I am down in the dumps. Knowing that I have not brought stocks but businesses. And if you are in business then as they ” Teji Mandi to chalti rahatee hai” So I want to split your two mode authentication in two steps.
    1. When I log in Kite with password I go to my Watchlist page. I have created them to buy them in equal proportion regularly. I enter on top an amount I will invest and below in the watchlist the number of shares of the equated amount will be displayed. When I hit the buy button I will go to second level of authentication.
    2. Here I enter my TPin and if I have sufficient funds then my trade gets executed or an add funds window opens which will indicate the funds required to complete the trade. I enter an amount greater that to avoid missing any purchase price variation during the period.
    3. Once my trade is completed I have the option to either go to the full suite of Kite or log out.
    This will keep a long term investor on track of his goals, keep him rooted to the very reason he had brought the stock in the first place.
    This kind of approach is used by an advisory but should be open to all DIY Investors. This method will keep serious investors away from all the noise and help him achieve his goals.
    Hope your team seriously brain storms my proposal and come up with a solution.

  6. Aayush Sarda says:

    When can we trade directly from Trading View? Does Zerodha have any plans for a collaboration with them?

    • Matti says:

      This won’t be possible under the current regulations as orders can only be placed from a broker’s platform while TradingView is a third-party platform.

  7. Sanket Akre says:

    Yes, I am waiting Trade button on graph feature.
    When It will put again?

  8. B Mahendra says:

  9. MIRIYALA SRIRAM says:

    Sir,
    Here are just a feedback and which can be scripted easily in kite.
    1. when adding a script, it adds in the bottom, and we have to scroll down below to view. So when a script is added can you make it at the top
    2. absolute and percentage format should be added for the stocks added in kite as in pi. no need to options
    3. dark mode so important and many are posting for long time
    4. tab space between scripts added is too much . and option to add font.
