I have tried both platforms, each has their ups and downs, Pi is more stable and has a lot more features, like the backtesting of strategies, the same is now offered through streak, which is now a paid feature, I understand it being offered as a paid service, it needs resources to operate, but is no where near to the flexibility offered by tradescript in pi, I have spent a lot of time, learning tradescript but zerodha abandoning the pi platform will make my effort go in vain.
Even if just 5% of customers use the pi platform, zerodha should keep the platform up-to-date for those 5% because there is a reason for this 5% to stick to the old outdated platform,(it’s also said the only that percentage of people make money in intraday trading) in my experience the kite platform is no where near to the features provided, yes zerodha has created online alternatives but I would prefer to use my own hardware instead on relying on third party servers, like streak, there is no guarantee that the strategies we create won’t be accessible to someone else.
TO KEEP THE LOYAL CUSTOMERS LOYAL DONT FORCE THEM TO USE SOMETHING THEY DONT WANT TO USE.
And please don’t give me the reason that more people use the kite platform so it’s unreasonable to be update the pi platform, update the pi platform and people will use it. People used it when it was up-to-date and they will once it’s updated again, you can not expect customers to use outdated products and say that people don’t use it.
Zerodha is the best broker in my opinion, please don’t ruin this reputation by forcing us to use paid services.
