Feature Request- Locked switch on Buy/Sell Floating Order Window in Kite Web

@nithin @siva Hi !!

For intraday scalping/trading, it will be excellent feature to have the floating order window stay locked with some switch on UI.

Especially for pop out chart user interface, where we see all market depth, positions, open orders, and charts at one place.

So that, it will just require to toggle Buy/Sell option in the pop-up only or left-hand side’s BIG BUY/Sell Button on page and one can work with price adjustments.

It will save a lot of time and won’t break the execution concentration and missed prices due to each time’s closing and opening of that floating order-window.

No, have a look at it. Where will be compressed ?

@siva @nithin Please get this as update. Will be an excellent tool for options trader.

Not asking for new features or UI change request, just locking the floating order window as optional in setting.

Which already gets locked in on any error notifications, as shown below.

Will check this out with our team and update here. @Arockiya_Raja @MohammedFaisal + +


Yes! :hugs:

This already present feature in Kite will beat any else desktop terminal/3rd party services at present in the world, in order execution speed, from user’s end.

It will solve so many issues day traders face, whether speed or order slicing time for big quantities via basket order clicks. :slightly_smiling_face:

Being optional one can unpin and use normal auto hide floating order window.

Just like you have given accessibility settings in Kite Mobile which disables the animations, at user’s wish and his/her end.

In Kite web, i think this also looks as a little code modification need only, as whenever error dialogue pops up, the order floating window gets locked automatically by itself, as shown in the video. :slightly_smiling_face:

Kite is having by far the best User Interface out of all terminals, whether web or mobile. Thank you whole team for designing it. These little add-ons will further enhance the trading experience. :love_you_gesture: :metal:

@Abhishek_Srivastava This feature is added on kite now. You can find the settings under the kite profile.

FYI. For now, this is not applicable to the pop-out chart. Will be added to the pop-out soon.



@Abhishek_Srivastava thanks for pointing this out. Don’t know why we hadn’t thought about it. :slight_smile:

WOW! This feature is very useful! Used to be a real pain entering and exiting large positions because of quantity freeze restrictions. Now it’s so quick and easy.

Hi! Wish you the whole team a very happy and blissful new year. :slight_smile:

This is the beauty of TradingQNA platform by building the synergy between users and company and driving product ideation.

Thank you for enabling the sticky order window idea. This has changed whole execution ability to the next level.

There are couple of suggestions as requests, the first one of them is to improve keyboard shortcuts execution:

  1. Once sticky order window is enabled in profile settings, the Buy and Sell toggle should just switch by pressing B and S keys on keyboard.

As of now, each time, Esc key–> B key–>Esc Key–>S key has to be pressed to launch the order window, which defeats the sticky order window purpose.

Yes, after pressing B/S shortcut keys, one can toggle switch by moving mouse cursor, but that doesn’t feel that intuitive. As it further requires use of mouse cursor back to point in Quantity box, to re-enable Enter key for final Buy/Sell.

Enabling this micro little improvement will be awesome in execution for keyboard guys. :slightly_smiling_face:

  1. Modifying the price of multiple open orders of same strike price/stock, at once is a very long and time consuming process. Esp Options due to freeze limit, modifying many open orders at split, by individual modification can create hassle in live market.

In Orders page , Can you please add a group headers/sections for multiple open orders of same strike/stock ?

Just again a slight redesign in the existing UI like sticky order window. :slightly_smiling_face:

The advantage for users will be, they can see their orders in sorted manner, and quickly Select each / All(
via Section header and check marks) and modify them at once, by opening order window of any single selected order.

Since you already provide ‘Select all’ option, just a little UI modification is needed to select the grouped orders section wise.

Modifying price of multiple orders of same instrument at once will be next level thing.

Since everything is selected/done by the user at UI level, i don’t think this will come in ALGO permission.
But it will upgrade the whole useability for users with bulk orders.

There is no such feature availability present at the moment in any web or desktop terminals anywhere for retailers.

3)Multiple quick buttons for basket orders to select them fast. With name label on them will be nice.

some of these are on our list of things to do. @Arockiya_Raja can you check on these requests and respond.

will check for the feasibilities.

This is on our to-do list.

The switch feature on basket order is on our to-do list if a user places any order from a basket, the user will be able to convert this as an exit order using the switch button. This may help with your requirement I believe.

Yes, these will be awesome.

Nothing will come close to a modern, clean and super functional platform like this. :grinning:

Thank you whole team. :heart:

Hi! What is the status update on these?
When will we see these on our terminal? :slightly_smiling_face:

The team is occupied with a few other updates. These features may take some more time. :slightly_frowning_face:
