AmiBroker NestTrader Trading Bridge

What is it?

It is an interface between AmiBroker (Charting and Technical Analysis Platform) and NEST Trading Platform (OMS developed by Omnesys Technologies) / NSE NOW. This Bridge automates most of the tasks associated with placing Buy/Sell orders.

Current issues

Currently traders maintain non-connected setups for Technical Analysis and Order Management. Whenever trading signal triggers in charting platform, traders place order in their trading platform manually. For frequent day-traders, this is error-prone, time-consuming & needless duplication of efforts.

How they are solved ?

Global Datafeeds addresses this pain-point by connecting the Analysis and OMS setups – thanks to cutting edge technologies from Omnesys NEST Platform – as shown below.

How it works?

Whenever signal triggers in charting / analysis platform, it instantly reflects in OMS – picking up the details of the intended trade from the analysis platform automatically. Then depending on the status of the user, the order will be placed on the exchange (NSE) as per following 2 scenarios*.
  • If the user is a Dealer :
    The order so reflected in charting platform will directly be placed on the exchange (strategy needs prior approval from exchange (NSE)).
  • If the user is a Retail Trader :
    The order so reflected in charting platform will reflect in NEST OMS. The user will have to review and accept the order so that it is placed on the exchange (no prior approval is required for the strategy from the exchange (NSE)).
* As per SEBI / Exchange Regulations. Please consult your broker to know more.

Minimum Requirements :

Users desirous to have this facility will need following :
  • Compatibility :
    1. This Trading Plugin is written for AmiBroker Standard, Professional or Ultimate Pack Pro Editions and can be tested even in free trial edition. We have tested it on latest Official Releases 5.50, 5.60, 5.70, 5.90 and 6.0 and works just fine in AmiBroker running on Windows XP, Windows 7 (32 bit / 64 bit), Windows 8 (32 bit / 64 bit) and Windows 10 (32 bit / 64 bit).
    2. We have briefly tested Trading Plugin in AmiBroker Version 5.2, 5.3 & 5.4 (stable releases – not RC or any Beta Versions) and it seems to work fine – except one problem. The popup window that shows order details as soon as the order is triggered is small and does not contain all order details. This is so because these versions of AmiBroker had small sized popup window of 'fixed' size and provided no way to define a custom (bigger) window. However, this is only a 'display problem' and it sends correct order with all relevant details to NestTrader.
