Automation isn’t allowed for retail traders.

@Bhuvan and @cryptictrader Is there any document from NSE or SEBI which says automation is not allowed for retail traders?

The whole fact that lot of brokers including Zerodha have opened up their API’s which enables automated trading and they are available for retail traders as well.

I found a document from SEBI on this.
Summary of SEBI guidelines on Algorithmic trading

  • It specifies the guidelines that need to be followed by the stock exchanges and brokers to enable algorithmic trading.
  • Mostly it talks about updating the systems of exchanges and brokers to comply with certain checks.
  • So when the brokers release their API’s - it must have in place all the checks mentioned in the guidelines.

There is no explicit statement that it is not allowed for retail traders.
