The partnership enables Zerodha to deliver a modern and immersive trading interface to over one million traders across India, most of whom interact with the platform via their mobile device. Zerodha has over 140,000 clients with over $2 billion in daily turnover contributions on average across various exchanges in India.Dan Schleifer, CEO & Co-founder of ChartIQ, comments, “The integration into Zerodha’s financial trading platform demonstrates ChartIQ’s unlimited customization options available through our charting solution, as well as the ability to deliver to millions of devices without any disruption in performance. This type of flexibility allows companies like Zerodha to scale a viable business quickly, and on their own terms.”

Kite also provides live streaming prices and buy/sell submissions in just two clicks or by using keyboard shortcuts. Kite has access to five years of free historical data for all stocks through its integration with ChartIQ and advanced technical analysis charting that includes ninety-nine indicators. Currently, Kite is available in ten different Indian languages: Hindi, Odiya, Marathi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, and Malayalam.
