How To Use Zerodha Kite Mobile App?
If you are an existing customer of Zerodha then you must download its highly efficient mobile trading platform, Zerodha Kite.
No wonder the app brings trading in your fingertips. With lot of benefits like real-time data, and analysis of charts it offers somewhat unique experience to its customers.
But do you actually know how to make the best use of the app?
Well! if not, then no need to worry at all, as here we are with the step-by-step guide of using the app proficiently.
Here we go!
Log in to Kite mobile by entering your Zerodha id and Zerodha Password. You will be asked to set up a PIN for authentication
Once you enter and confirm the PIN, you will be directed to the “watchlist” section (you can have 5 watchlists at a time each of which can include up to 50 stocks and indices)
You can add a particular stock to your watchlist by entering its initials/name in the search section and then clicking on the “+” option beside it
You can club stocks together in the watchlist 1, indices in the watchlist 2, Derivatives (futures & options) in watchlist 3 as per your convenience
For deleting a stock from your watchlist, press and hold on that particular stock tap the “delete icon” beside it and finally click on save
The second section in the Kite mobile app is “orders” which contains “pending”, “executed”, and “GTT” segments
As the name suggests, all your unexecuted/pending orders can be viewed in the “pending” segment, all executed/completed orders in the “executed” segment, and all delivery orders in the “GTT” segment.
Good Till Triggered – GTT orders of Zerodha are used when a trader wants to invest in a stock and hold it rather than buying it immediately
The third section is “portfolio” where you can view your “holdings” and “positions”
All your current holdings i.e. the stocks you have held for investment can be viewed under “holdings”
Under “positions” you can view all your currently held positions in respective stocks
The fourth section is “apps” wherein you can view and know about all the trading applications offered by Zerodha
Here, you can not just explore multiple platforms and tutorials offered by the broker but also view the Zerodha apps you own/use
The fifth and final section is “account”
In this section, you can view/edit your profile details, change your app settings, add & withdraw funds as well as access your Zerodha Console
Click on “funds” for Zerodha Fund Transfer to your trading account. Enter the transfer amount, select the payment option (Google Pay, UPI, Net Banking) and confirm the payment
The process is similar for withdrawing funds from your Zerodha account to your bank account. Just enter the withdrawal amount and confirm the transaction. Make sure that the withdrawal amount does not exceed your account balance
How To Use the Zerodha Kite Web?
If you prefer trading on a laptop or desktop, use the KIte web which is Zerodha’s online trading website. Follow these steps:
First, log in to the Kite web by visiting Kite.zerodha.com
Again, you may either use Kite’s web or mobile platform to place your “buy and “sell” orders.
To buy order using the Zerodha Kite app just login to the app and open the watchlist. Following this select stock and explore the entire details. Pick the product type as per the type of trade (Zerodha intraday trade or Delivery trade)you want to do and the order type (market order, stop loss, limit order etc). You can also select other order types like BO, CO, AMO etc.
The same procedure applies to the Kite web. It’s just that since the desktop has a bigger and better display, trading, charting, analyzing becomes much easier.
CNC stocks are intended for long-term investments. Hence, it is preferable to select “market” as the order type because no possibility can be predicted exactly for a longer span of time
Also, to be able to use and place orders on Zerodha Kite, you must have a Zerodha Demat Account or a Zerodha Trading account.
Everyone is aware that stock market trading is something where you buy at a low price and sell at a higher price. But do you know that you can do intraday trading in Zerodha by selling at a high price first and buying the share at a lower price later? This is called short selling.
