    I coded a solution for my private use. It only pulls quotes for NSE Index (since I don't trade anything else, it didn't make sense putting in the rest).

    Any broker with multiple-Intraday Charts...?

    Does anybody know of a broker with reasonable brokerage and who provides at least 3 days intraday charts? PIB is a joke. Can anybody work off just 1 day's ticks? (You start out the day pretty much with an empty window!!) I am not too interested in all those fancy indicators just MACD, Stoch...
