Zerodha Part 3

@trade4learn do you know of any broker offering NSE NOW?
Earlier I was used to have NOW with Zerodha, but they stopped.
Now i m with finvasia, but they too dont give NOW to new customers, so i m using NEST.
NEST so far is pretty stable. I dont see any reason for a retailer for not to shift to NEST or any better platform. I like nest as i m able to fetch Realtime quality data using Josh1's utility. Same can be achieved with NOW too.

Can i know the specific reason why u want to stick to NOW only ?? NEST is as fast as NOW as far as I can see.

Nest is being phased out too. Bracket and Cover orders have already been stopped on Nest in Zerodha
 
@trade4learn What's this Josh's utility that everyone talks about? Where can i learn more about it?
I was particular about NOW because NOW is offered directly by NSE and maintained by NSE. So it just gives me confidence to trade - and I found the lowest latency possible in NOW only.

josh's utility fetches realtime data for Amibroker and Ninjatrader from NOW/NEST terminal. Also u can do backfill with 1 min data easily.

Now if NOW is not supported anymore by NSE and also there is no latency issue with NEST u can shift to NEST while its available. NEST too will fade in time, but as of now its available.

Well, Ultimately ZERODHA will fade away. They want to push their KITE platform as much as they can. NEST requires subscription fees, I think ZERODHA doesnt want to bear that cost anymore.

They started off well with Zerodha Pi for desktop, but they stopped that too. So now all they have got is KITE (Which is nice actually) but no support for desktop. They stopped my NOW and didnt offer me NEST as i wasn't their active client, so shifted to finvasia where no committments required.

As of now NEST is available, so enjoy it. Otherwise finvasia offers FoxTrader too. Which is a nice and affordable option for semi automatic algo trading.

I'm waiting for finvasia to open their apis... like Fyers did. Then it would be easy to do algo with them.
 
They stopped PI too?
Nah, Pi is working. But they stopped developing it anymore.

Otherwise we could have seen a lot better platform... i'm still waiting for some serious brokers to introduce something like ProTrader ,.. as far as i can see Composite Edge guys r not interested in doing business. They have pretty unprofessional staff atleast. They demanded money for coding support of their own platform.. LoL
 
It's a golden opportunity for other brokers to take away some market share from Zerodha by offering good product and brokerage. Many won't like only Kite a web based platform. It will never be as good as a desktop platform
 
@trade4learn - Have you tried InteractiveBrokers? I have opened acc with them yesterday, still going through the process. They are by far the best discount broker in India (execution wise).

Also, Wisdom Capital offers NSE NOW, but you have to pay 1200 upfront lifetime demat charges for freedom plan.

NSE NOW is being supported by NSE - but NSE isn't developing it. That software will always run well, without much issues. But these brokers want to push their platforms and eventually charge a nominal fee or something. Or maybe there are intricacies in orders flowing through NSE NOW vs Broker's own terminal where broker is able to profit from people using their platform instead of NSE NOW
 
@trade4learn Like for instance, Zerodha can strategically cause an issue in kite and profit from that technological glitch that they will apologise for. But can't do the same thing with NSE NOW right? Ever wonder why Zerodha and Kite gives out during high volatility days? Can it be strategically caused to happen?
