GetSnapshot : Returns latest Snapshot Data of multiple Symbols – max 25 in single call
String value like MCX
Name of supported exchange. How to get list of supported exchanges you can find here
[“MINUTE”]/[“HOUR”], default = [“MINUTE”]
String value of required periodicity.
Numerical value 1, 2, 3…l default = 1
Optional parameter of required period for historical data. Can be applied for [MINUTE]/[HOUR] periodicity types
Values of instrument identifiers, max. limit is 25 instruments per single request
How to get list of available instruments and identifiers you can find here
[true]/[false], default = [false]
Optional parameter. By default function will use long instrument identifier format. Functions will use short instrument identifier format if set as [true]. Example of ShortIdentifiers are NIFTY25MAR21FUT, RELIANCE25MAR21FUT, NIFTY25MAR2115000CE, etc.
What is returned ?
InstrumentIdentifier (Symbol), Exchange, LastTradeTime, TradedQty, OpenInterest, Open, High, Low, Close
LastTradeTime : This value is expressed as no. of seconds since Epoch time (i.e. 1st January 1970). Also known as Unix Time. Please Visit https://www.epochconverter.com/ to get formulae to convert human readable time to Epoch and vice versa (scroll to end of their home page)
GetSnapshot , the time when request is sent is very important. For example : If user sends request for 1minute snapshot data at 9:20:01, he will get record of trade data between 9:19:00 to 9:20:00. However, if request is sent at 9:19:58 i.e. before minute is complete, user will get trade data between 9:18:00 to 9:19:00. In both cases, timestamp of the returned data will be start timestamp of the period. So when data between 9:15:00 to 9:20:00 is returned, it will have timestamp of 9:15:00. Also if a user subscribes for snapshot data of any symbol for a period and if no trades happen during that period, no data is sent by the server
Risk Disclosure : Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Hypothetical Performance Disclosure : Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
