    If I take Kite Connect subscription, will I be able to automate my trading algo and execute trades automatically or do I need a Dealer Terminal for it?

    Checked FAQ list above, but not clear. Please reply.

    You will have to log in manually at least once a day on the Kite Connect login page. Kite Connect is for personal use only, why would you use dealer terminal for that.

    Ok @sujith. I referred to personal use only. I read somewhere that to automate trades you need a Dealer Terminal. So what I understand is following -

    -"Using Kite Connect subscription, I will be able to automate my trading algo and execute trades automatically, provided I login to Kite Connect manually once a day." Please confirm.

    -Also what is the earliest I have to login for a calendar day? Will 00:00 hours work?

    -And any plans to remove this daily manual login barrier?

    The automation part depends on your logic/coding skill. You can use different API endpoints to fetch the required data/order placement from our side.
    Also what is the earliest I have to login for a calendar day? Will 00:00 hours work?
    You need to login post 07:35 AM for that day. You can go through this thread for more detail.
    And any plans to remove this daily manual login barrier?
    No. It is made mandatory by an exchange.
