Zerodha Trader - Brief
Zerodha Trader (ZT) is what we call the downloadable software version of our trading platform. The software is developed by Omnesys Technologies under their propreitary name "NEST." NEST is the preferred choice of some of the biggest retail brokerage firms in India. Omnesys Technologies is headed by Mr. Shrikant Pandit and NSE (National Stock exchange) is a key stakeholder. Omnesys has also developed the NSE propreitary trading platform called "NOW." NEST is very popular amongst the institutional trading community in India.
Presently on Zerodha Trader (customized version of NEST), you can trade NSE, BSE & MCX. We have recently applied for membership on MCX-SX and this exchange should be enabled as soon as it goes live. Zerodha Trader has many advanced features and we will explain about all of it in this category on Zerodha Connect.
Zerodha Trader will work well on both windows and MAC. This would require internet speeds of atleast 256kbps and 512 Kbps for optimum performance. Since it is a software version, you will not be able to use it if you are working in an office where you are not allowed to install external programs. You can use Zerodha-Web in such a case.
Topics under ZT will include:
1. Installation of the platform and explanation on the various basic features.
2. Using the SPAN calculator, a unique tool available on ZT which will show you the margin requirement even before you take a trade. It will also show you the exact margin benefits offered by the exchange for taking positions that are hedged against each other.
3. Using our charting platform.
4. Advance plugins available through Nest Plus, https://plus.omnesysindia.com/NestPlus/Home/ , auto trading plugins, backtesting strategies and much more.
