1. Can I get historical data over weekends?
2. Is there any data rate limit apply to accessing historical data?
3. Can I get whole historical data available for any symbol?

    You can access historical data anytime.
    You can make up to 3 requests per second.
    You can get complete historical data but in multiple requests.

    So there is a limit in getting data for number of days per request?
  • sujith
    Yes, the limit is as follows

    All intervals are in days,
    "minute": 30,
    "hour": 365,
    "day": 2000,

    "3minute": 90,
    "5minute": 90,
    "10minute": 90,
    "15minute": 180,
    "30minute": 180,
    "60minute": 365

    No, I didn't mean this. Since you have mentioned 3 requests per second. I want to know how much data I can fetch in 1 request? Say for example I can fetch 100 days data or 100 rows of data
  • sujith
    For a minute interval data, there will be 360 rows in a day for NSE instruments.
    All the above constraints are in the number of days.

    Hi @sujith ,

    As you mentioned "You can get complete historical data but in multiple requests."
    I just want to confirm one doubt before purchasing historical API.

    Can i get historical data from 2005 to 2020(60min candle data)? There is no issue at all if i have to send multiple requests.

    As you mentioned i can get 60min candle data of 365 days in single request, I think i have to request 60min data of 2005 and then 2006 and then 2007 and so on..
    Correct me if i'm wrong.
