    Can you elaborate what you field you are checking?

    thank you for your response, you were mentioned one formula to calculate pnl
    pnl = (sellValue - buyValue) + (netQuantity * lastPrice * multiplier);

    I was checking the last_price, sell value buy value, pnl.
    we can calculate pnl from the above formula but as the position book is not getting updated we cant figure out which stocks make a position at that time.

    We didn't understand, can you elaborate this?

    The last price must be fetched from the Quote API or websockets API, you are doing the same right?

    Actually. position book is not updating on the function call - kite.positions()
    so even if I have any positions in my trading account so that is not reflecting in my position book when I call positions through API.
    so the issue here is even if I call websocket API or quote API that won't be of any use because I'm not getting the information of updated positions made.

    It will update after a trade happens. You can add a 500ms delay and then pull positions.
  • maheshsolanke
    okay, but i'm calling kite. position() after every 30sec.

    That is weird. Are you saying the new position is not showing up or quantity is not updated after a trade?
  • maheshsolanke
    yes, the new position is not showing.

    @maheshsolanke
    We just tried reproducing the same scenario at our end. Place SBIN MIS and CNC MARKET order with different quantities added a few seconds delay and fetched positions. It's correctly showing the recently generated position of SBIN. You need to re-check your code/flow. If still facing the issue, you can paste your complete code here.
