There seems to be a considerable delay in the prices shown on the website and the price (last_price) retrieved using the positions() function. I have noticed a delay of up to 12 to 14 seconds. What is the reason for this delay ? Is it something that I am doing in the code? Most of the times, the sell signal is lost / delayed and I am unable to sell at the highest price or purchase at the lowest price.
Please help. Would getting the quotes using KiteTicker have lesser delay ?
I am using Python. Did you mean quote() ? I did not find any function getQuote.
Secondly, if I only wanted to check the LTP, then would the function ltp() not be a better option ?
yes its quote
