I am in the lookout for a platform that gives BO and speed. Speed in terms of no platform lag in between orders, seemless order modification.
Dhan has failed considerably regarding order execution in the open, ie between 9:16- 9:30.
Fyers BO execution is instant, but it has often a glitch which gives error in order modification.
Espresso layout was different from a normal platform and a dampener at first. But orders went through easy, and it’s BO has the option just to put a SL (not in absolute points) with an optional tgt. You can add the tgt after order has been executed.
Anyway, just day 1 of using espresso. if anyone has inputs regarding espresso, do give. I am concern mainly about order entries. Charting currently FYERS TV stands top, imho.
Don’t like d algorithm(lack of a better term) of BO for Dhan. Say, my SL unit is 3.2 pts, Dhan will put SL at farther at 5 pts.
This difference considerably alters my risk and i may lose more than i planned in case of a spike, post entry. Fyers is better in this case. It throws
the SL tgt at pin point accuracy, with the tgt sl points I gave. Doesn’t require much modification.
Dhan lags. Maybe it’s because I am a hand trader, and my entries can come around 9:16 -924. Been clicking the mouse like a monkey a good number of years. So, i know when there is a lag and orders slipped through, not because of a bid ask spread.
I know you are supporting Dhan, but Dhan is not suited for someone who trades the open.
No one is perfect. If you see the Dhan community, I regularly post the good and bad about Dhan. Today from my tradingview webhook the basket order for 25 lots of nifty calls just went fine. But orders like these don’t go in the time range you mentioned on most days. So will raise with Dhan again and push to make the 9:16 -9:24 experience better.
