Automated Trading

I am trying to automate a strategy. I employed bunch of while loops with time<3.30 pm. I feel thats not the most efficient way to automate a code. Ideas are welcome.

    what is the purpose of code, backtesting? in that case it is fine. develop a code such that you 'add' data points like open, high, low, close, volume every 1 min (or whatever ur timeframe is) and ur code should work on algo and return you buy/sell signals. mostly keep everything loosely coupled. e.g. keep zerodha api in separate class/component such that if you switch to any verndor, you dont need to change ur core component but just ur verndor specific class. shud use interfaces

    Not backtesting executing the orders without manual intervention. Suppose buy the stock at some price say open is at 100 and I will buy at 98. stock may come anytime in the day to 98. I employed a while loop for this.

    RMS square off is done at 3:20, make sure you close in the money positions before that on expiry day otherwise you will end up paying huge STT. Check out this for more information.

    import datetime
    import time
    #my code goes here

    Why Bunch?
    Only One!!!

    @AnkitDoshi You should have a look at event driven programming

    With a while loop you are probably requesting the security information multiple times. It is inefficient for you and adds unnecessary load to Kite. And since Kite already provides websockets, you should use that and subscribe to your specific security. That way you can execute your conditions/orders when data is received over a websocket
