    Hello ,

    I have made a complete system of algo trading with your kiteXL , but now i face some issues .

    On the 5th Dec 19 , the ohlc levels are different to those being shown on the zerodha kite terminal ,whereas it was almost the same on other days . Is this an zerodha issue ?

    Secondly if there is some lag with the api feed from the broker , does this have any latency checker or can we get ticker timestamp in excel so that atleast then i can calculate the right ohlc values.

    Your earlier version used to store ticker timestamp for each tick in an notepad , which UDF do i use to get ticker value and its timestamp

    Thanks in advance for your help.
    You guys are doing a great job empovering retail traders like me to undestand algo trading

    1. @Faraz,

      KiteNet just returns whatever the data received from Kite server, if you see OHLC mismatch, then you may contact kite developer team with full details.

      You can easily check tick latency in seconds(appx).
      Just get the last update time in a cell
      A1=GetRTD(“NSE”, “AXISBANK”, “LUT”)
      B1 = (Now() – A1)*86400

      Tick Logs is available only for our Bridge users.
      But as a developer, you can easily log the ticks received with simple UDF.

      Pls post your future queries at
