How to Place an order on the first tick itself?

I want to place an order for a certain stock as soon as the market opens, On the first tick itself, is it possible?

    You can place order after the first tick. You will have to open the websocket connection and wait for the tick of that instrument and then place order from there.
    In few less liquid instruments the first tick can be at 9:17 or 9:19 AM

    PS: Websocket API gives you a cached tick once you subscribe for the tick, you will have to ignore that or use tick timestamp to make the decision.
