    Am thinking of writing some backend application that would use tick data to compute and mathematically analyze to output possible trades of stocks and/or their futures.

    Am I allowed to do that ? Is zerodha okay with that ?

    Hi Sujith, thanks for your response. You said "You don't have to do all these. pykiteconnect does it for you. You can check out the repo here" but I've already downloaded and installed pykiteconnect from github and am connected to kite connect in ipython on my terminal. So can you pl elaborate why I'm unable to get access token?

    One more thing, what is the specific command I need to write to calculate checksum (SHA-256 of api_key + request_token + api_secret)? Do I need to concatenate these 3 strings into one string without any spaces in between and then find the checksum of that?

    Hi Sujit,
    I am new to Algo and API. Yesterday I paid Rs 2000 for creating a new app to onnect my Tradeton Account to Zerodha Acount. Created the App but the there was some issue in connection. So i wanted to edit the App to change some settings and by mistake deleted the app. Now when I want to create new app, it is again asking for Rs 2000 whereas my previous app is still valid for one month. Whats the solution. Have written mail to Support team but no reply. Plz help

    Hi Sujith,
    Thanks for your prompt replies...I have very important question

    I am not sure if I am doing something wrong or its how NSE works

    I am testing my program for partially filled orders so I am placing BUY order for SUNTECK from Kite and selling SUNTECK from my upstox account... I see that as soon as I place sell order from SUNTECK, my buy order from Kite becomes invisible from market depth

    Does that mean NSE tracks orders at PAN card level and hence NSE doesnt allow simultaneous BUY and SELL orders(from different brokers like Kite, Upstox, Sharekhan, etc) for same stock from same PAN card?
    If its not TRUE, then I understand my conclusion sounds funny but that has been my observation for last 10-15 trades

    For example,
    if market depth : bid 100 and ask 110
    Now i place bid from KITE at 105 so market depth: bid 105 and ask 110
    Now if I place MKT SELL from upstox, my execution price is 100 and I dont see 105 in market depth
    My quantities in Kite still 0

    Hi Sujith,
    I am new to Zerodha Kite connect.
    Can you give me Sample Code to connect, and place an order based upon simple technical indicator. The objective here is to understand how to code for Zerodha.

    I need to know if ZERODHA is providing live RSI indicator along with live data?
    If not then , can I use talib or I need to construct my own indicators.

    Invalid `api_key` or `access_token`.

    • sujith
      Are you sure you are using the right api_key? You seem to have two Kite Connect apps and only one of them is active and another one is a Kite Publisher app.
    • KrishnaKumbham
      yes, i am using the right api key. today morning I have activated the API. and I am using the activated API key.

    Hi < can you help me in automating request token generation via java.
    March 4
    • sujith
      It is mandatory by the exchange that a user has to login at least once a day manually. We don't recommend automating login.
    hello sir,
    I need to execute bank nifty options, bracket order with stop loss and target trigger price based on last one minute close. I already developed the coding with OHLC data. But the issue with that one is, it is taking last close from last day trading data. Thus creating a big range for stoploss and target trigger price. Please help

    Note :: Am using python language
    1] Does the heart beats (of 1 byte fixed length) received in "ticks" of websocket on_tick callback, have any fixed value? (So that corresponding handler can be written!!!)
    2] If there are multiple full mode subscriptions successfully made and there is change in only 1 of the script's "LTP"; what is received in "ticks"? (My understanding :: Only the changed LTP script's full mode dictionary is received!!!)

    Your insights are most awaited!!

  • saravanaub
    Hi, I read your comment on request token validity. You said it is valid of one whole day. And you also said if I log out of pi. This will also log out. Loggoing out of pi alone will log out from everywhere or log out from mobile app will also log out the api session?

      By default, Kite Connect is provided for only one client. If you need to use it with multiple client id then you need two Kite Connect apps.

    Hi Sujith,

    This is regarding the topic "Using Stochastic Momentum Indicator. But getting different values than what is in the charts". Can you confirm the formula used in the charts? I am getting a different output. One of them is wrong. I want to know which one is wrong so that I can devise a strategy. Please confirm the formula used.
