Yes, you can use PLB strategy builder with MCX or NFO.
The entire strategy builder is based on Excel formula, you just need to edit the required cell. For example, if you want to use with MCX, then you can enter the number of lots to trade in ‘Qty Column’.
But make sure, you are not deleting/shifting any rows/columns. If you want to do custom calculations, then you can do it in another sheet or add necessary columns at the right most in PLB sheet.
We advise, that you should initially test with NSE equity with very small qty for at-least two weeks before investing in futures and options.
Thanks for developing this great and useful product . This shows your skill and devotion to build such a bug free sofisticated product. Now my query is : is it possible to use this to get trigger signal in spot and place cover order in future as I do, and most people practice in actual trading.I am a priceaction based supply/demand trader. I have entry level knowledge in excel vba(self taught)? Waitig for repply, thankig you again.
Sir, I have already coded the signal part: type1, type 3 and type5 entry and exit signals for demand and supply zones in spot and can place cover orders in futures. and it is working in zerodha but problem is elsrwhere. Cover orders are all in MIS and not in “NORM” hence even without exit signal they are sq off at 3.22pm, but we need to put them in “NORM” product type so that we can keep them over night and next day to start again. But since we are to relogin every day, I am to put them manually next day again.
Now I am working with Dictionary keys and trying to save dictionary keys in a sheet so that next day it will automatically reload the keys from that sheet when the workbook opens and send fresh exit order for open positions when price reaches target or stop, and if gapup or gapdown happens beyond those levels to give option to exit at my discreetions. I am yet to achieve that.
