I am new to this but very much interested to use this. I know C language and Excel Macros, with this can I use API to do trading as per my plans. One of my requirement is to use trailing stoploss in BO like below:
- I bought script at 100 and target is 110 and stop loss is 90 - Now I want to use stop loss such that if it moves 5 points in my direction (i.e. Script goes to 105), then my stop loss should move to 102 (I know with existing set up it can go to 95).
If above can be achieved can some one help me where from I should I start.
You can get started by reading the documentation (https://kite.trade/docs/connect/v1/). Our official Python client will be the easiest to use.
Do we need to install Phython client (By downloading from https://www.python.org/downloads/ ) or directly we can create apps from developer logon. I tried creating one app from developer login using publisher but not sure how to test it.
I am interested to subscribe for API also but before that I want to have hands on. Can somebody help here with initial start up, may be some document which shows screen shot etc.
In the developer console, you should create a "Connect" app and obtain API keys to start using the API.
However, if you are not familiar with the concept of HTTP APIs, I'm afraid a broad discussion would be out of the scope.
Since you mentioned we can make http requests from any platform or programming language, can I use "C" programming language, if so than from next step will be how to make http request from "C" program. Is my understanding correct?
Thanks Kailash for your quick reply and help.
The easiest place to learn is the documentation itself https://kite.trade/docs/connect/v1/
There are simple HTTP curl requests, that can be run from a terminal, given as example for every API end point.
I already started reading.
What is the difference between working through Kite Connect API and Pi bridge.
Pi Bridge is an addon that sits on top of Pi, the windows application. You need Pi running on a Windows machine to use Pi bridge.
