    Hello Sir,

    I am new to kite Connect. I would like to build my own fully automated trading platform in Excel (using VBA) by using Kite Connect.
    For that i would be requiring live OHLC and volumes data (minute & hour). So is it possible to get these live values with respect to time frame (minute & hour) in excel using Kite Connect?.

    hi,
    I have been a kitexl user for few months. First let me congratulate you and your team for the awesome job. Eagerly waiting for kite connect 3.0 excel :)

    I am facing this issue for the past few trading sessions. I like to place regular market order in pre-session between 9:00 - 9:07
    But the order gets executed as a limit order. Also I only trade in nifty 100 stocks hence no chance of reaching upper or lower circuit.

    Thanks....

    Any update on the progress of the new KiteXL? I understand that while an exact date on the release might be a bit tricky to give out, I'd really appreciate if you can give a tentative date on its release. Thanks!

    Hi botany02,

    Is there an issue with KiteXL in downloading price data today? It was working fine in the morning but stopped working after that. I've detailed the issue in this discussion on the forum.

    https://kite.trade/forum/discussion/3005/quotes-not-streaming-in#latest

    Could you please let me know how to fix it? Thanks.

    Hi, I'm trying to login with KiteXL. I've installed it as per instructions and have entered in my API key and secret.

    The problem is that I get this error message: "User access denied. User is not enabled for kite connect".

    On the forum I had noticed that you had requested the user to PM you their client ID for resolution. My client ID is DA7338. I'm not using multiple instances. Could you please help me out? Thanks.

      Thanks for replying back.

      No, it's the paid subscription (Kite connect + publisher). I've PM'd a screenshot of the relevant kite connect developer app page.

      Could you please let me know if someone is trying to address my complaint? It's very frustrating that I can't even log in and I'm not getting any feedback on the matter. All the while, it's not like my paid subscription is getting extended due to this error.

    Hi @Botany02

    Is there any way to get number of Open positions through Kite Xl.. I know that clicking Position button will give me whole data. But i need some thing like RTD function.

    As i want to automate my trades, i need count of my open positions.

    for eg if (number of positions is < = 2 then trade else wait)

    Thanks in advance.

      #1 This may be due to Temp Files/Cookies/Cache, most of the time this issue caused by system, so you have to dig out. You may try the below;
      1. Delete Temp Files/Cookies/Cache
      2. Try running KiteXL in other Laptop/PC, see whether the issue continues o not

      #2 'GetOrderStatus' will return order status from the stored value. KiteXL is not fetching the status from Kite Server, this is so because to prevent users from getting 429 error and for fast performance, otherwise if fetching from Kite Server for multiple orders will lead to system instability and 429 error.

      when you place a order, KiteXL stores the order id in a key with initial status as Null and starts a thread to fetch order status in a loop with interval of 10 sec and exits the loop once the order status changes to 'COMPLETE', 'REJECTED' or 'CANCELLED' and stores the Final order status in the Key. This is so because, since the order status is sent via post-back that needs a domain and the domain should be connected to user KiteXL via some communication mechanism like TCP/IP, so we implemented thread for checking the order status.
      This will work fine until you have limited number of orders or the order type is Market (The loop will exit immediately as your order will be COMPLETE with Market order type).
      But when you place more order with order type as LIMIT or SL or SL-M, more threads are created, all threads keep on running (as LIMIT or SL or SL-M order) and all threads simultaneously trying to fetch order status in a loop with interval, thus leads to 429 error and system instability.When a thread experience a 429 error, it exits the loop, so leaving the order status to NULL forever till you reopen the KiteXL or Fetch order Book.

      This is the known issue as we don't have any other option (as post-back is the only way to get order updates and that requires domain and integration with KiteXL)

      We are updating the KiteXL, which will be released soon with Post-back support.
      This version will give user more flexible than ever, you will get each and every data and updates.
      You have more control over your system and increased stability, lot more functions to manipulate orders, symbols and positions, options to login in chrome and use the access token in Excel(can ignore IE).

      (If Order updates through web-sockets is implemented by Zerodha, then it's bonus, we no need to rely on post-back which requires additional head ache to initiate a communication between KiteXL and the domain.dates)

      We recommend, you wait for our release.

    • botany02
      botany02
      Yes rajeesh31,
      You can add reference Menu --> Tools --> Add Reference --> Select 'COM Library for KiteConnect API of Zerodha'.
      Also you need to change the binding in the module. Right-now, it is late binding

    Hi,

    I am using your kite API. we have interacted earlier also. Facing one issue
    Sometimes if i try to get historical data for a Call or put it says invalid symbol. Though i am able to fetch data for the same symbol string directly from zerodha. basically by using

    "https://api.kite.trade/instruments/historical/5633/minute?from=2015-12-28&to=2016-01-01&api_key=xxx&access_token=yyy"

    not sure whats the issue here. instrument download and everything is good, but still does not work. Placeregularorder also fails because of same error, but placing directly in zerodha works.

    On the Kite Connect API site, it is mentioned " Never embed the api_secret in a mobile app or client side application, web or otherwise. Similarly, access_token should never be exposed publically."

    Why the KiteXL file has the provision to give the API Secret ?
