LTP Call limit

Hi @sujith
I am requesting LTP call twice within same second and facing error as 'NetworkException: Too many requests', whereas if I request for any other call within same second, I am getting response successfully. Hence, what are the limit for requesting LTP calls.

    The quote endpoint is limited to one request per second.

    Hi, limit is per second or per instrument per second ? How do I fetch 3 different instrument price in a single second?
    Also, can I place order within same second after 3 calls?

    It is one request per second. You can use bulk fetch APIs to fetch quote for multiple instruments in one request.
    You can check python documentation of Kite Connect 3 here.
    You need to pass like this, instruments = ["NSE:INFY"]

    Basically for my requirement, I need to wait for 1 second at least as I am calculating ATM strike prices based on futures price. Hence first I need to fetch futures LTP, calculate ATM strike price and fetch options LTP. So I cannot use bulk API option. And as there 1 request/second limit, I need to wait making algo slow.

    You can use Kite Ticker(websockets) API. Check out documentation here.
