Hi Zerodha Team,
I recently rang to your support for issues surrounding charting platform in Zerodha PI. Surprised to hear from your support analyst that Zerodha is phasing out PI altogether and there will be no update or support.
To be frank, I like Zerodha PI than Kite. It is always good to have a stable Desktop Trading Platform than a thin client web based trading platforms.
Major reason is - The ability to place Quick Limit Orders / Quick Market Orders with just a click without having to go through lot of head aches of typing in Order Type, Qty, Price and click Confirm button etc. It helps a lot for traders who trade options and enter multiple lots at quick fraction of a second or even Stock Scalpers who like to get in and out at a good price.
Zerodha always produced world class products in Trading Industry, but with the move of removing PI is completely surprising. You will need to have a good Thick Client Trading Platform for active traders. Kite does not support quick limit/market orders from chart with just a click. It goes through a lot of order type questions which are completely time consuming and unnecessary.
If you guys don’t want to pour your resources into Zerodha PI, atleast dont sunset it. Just update your charting platform in PI to load data properly then let it be there for users who use PI to trade.
Hope I get a positive response soon.
