We will soon be releasing real-time data for all NSE Futures and Options with the “Intraday(NSE F&O 1-min ) Add-on” in 2nd half of next week. All features and bug fixes made in the Beta version will make it to the Investar release.

Access of free 1-min real-time F&O data in our Beta version will end approximately one week after the release date (to give interested users sufficient time to purchase the addon). We thank all Beta users for providing us valuable feedback during the Beta.

At the time of the release, we will also be launching an enhanced Nifty Special Edition (with 1-min data) and a new product, Nifty 50 Special Edition, which will cater to traders of Nifty, BankNifty and all Nifty 50 stocks, their futures and options.

We will be sending out an official announcement with further instructions as soon as we make the release.

Stay tuned!

Coming soon: 1-min real-time data for NSE F&O

Are you waiting for 1-min real-time data for NSE Futures and Options?

The wait is over!

With an overwhelming response to our 1-min real-time data for stocks, we will soon be releasing a new Beta version with 1-min real-time data for all NSE futures and options. As before, it will be available free to Investar intraday subscribers for a period of 2-4 weeks. After the beta is over, it will be available as a “Intraday (NSE F&O 1-min) add-on” which will be chargeable (in addition to the 5-min F&O add-on that is currently available).

Our 1-min data will now enable you to scan for buy/sell signals in Futures on 1,2 and 3-min timeframe charts. With 1-min data, you can find more precise volume breakouts, find futures with open interest build-up in 1-min charts as well as scan futures with Supertrend Buy/Sell signals.

If you are a Nifty trader and using our 5-min Nifty Special version, now that we have 1-min data for all F&O, the Beta will behave as a 1-min Nifty Special for you.

Following are notable new features of the new Beta:

  • 1-min real-time data for all NSE Futures and Options
  • New F&O View (with OI%)
  • Enhanced F&O Lookup
  • and many more

Stay tuned!

Coming Soon: Investar 4.0 (with 1-min Intraday Add-On and much more)

We will soon be launching a new release of Investar with the following features:

  • New Scans based on Supertrend & Pivot Points (specially for day-traders)
  • 1-min Volume Gainers/Losers and New High/Low scans to identify volume breakouts in intraday.
  • and many more

Once we release the new version, all Investar intraday users will have a choice to stay with the Intraday 5-min add-on or upgrade to Intraday 1-min add-on for NSE (pricing will be announced at the time of release). Choosing the Intraday 1-min add-on will give access to all intraday timeframes upto 1-min.

If you are an Investar Standard subscriber, you can try all the features free in Investar Beta. Investar Beta runs simultaneously with the current release of Investar and if you do not have Investar Beta, you can download it here. Free access to the 1-min data in Beta version will be available approximately for a week after Investar 4.0 release.

We are pleased to announce a new release of Investar Beta with the following features:

We hope you enjoy using the 1-min data as much as we enjoyed working on it. We look forward to receiving valuable feedback from you during the Beta period to help us improve the software.

Coming soon – 1-min real-time data for NSE

Are you an intraday trader and find 5-min updates too slow for you? Do you want to capture volume breakouts as and when they happen in intraday? The wait is over!

By popular demand, we will soon be coming out with 1-min real-time data for all NSE stocks. It will be released as a beta release of Investar (Investar Beta) for a short period during which it will be available FREE to all our current NSE intraday 5-min subscribers. After the beta is over, it will be available as a 1-min Intraday(NSE) add-on which will be chargeable (in addition to the 5-min add-on that is currently available).

Our 1-min data will now enable traders to get more precise volume breakouts as well as enable them to scan for buy/sell signals on lesser than 5-min timeframe charts.

Just as our 5-min intraday add-on was unique when it was introduced, we expect the 1-min intraday add-on to be a unique cost-effective replacement for tick-by-tick real-time data, since most Technical Analysis is anyway done on minimum 1-min timeframes.

Stay tuned!

Coming Soon – NSE F&O Intraday Beta: FREE for Intraday Subscribers

This Beta is FREE exclusively for all Investar intraday subscribers, so if you want to get early access to it, go for any Investar subscription with one or more Intraday Add-Ons and get FREE access during the Beta period!

A 2 week-long correction in Nifty. What next?

Ever since the breakout in Nifty 2 weeks back, it has been pretty much in correction-mode, correcting from 5350 to almost 5168 on 12th Nov, 2011. This is not what a healthy breakout is supposed to look like. 5165 was the resistance (the top level in the sideways trend from mid-August to 24th October, which was broken on 25th October). On the way down this level is now a support (Attendees of “Basics of Technical Analysis” will recall this as a classic example of prior strong resistance turning into strong support).

Although, the short-term uptrend does not look healthy (and a little broken, in fact, especially on a daily chart) after the Friday’s session, the only saving grace was that it closed above 5165 on both the daily and weekly charts (weekly close is always very important for looking at the bigger market picture). Moreover, the overseas markets (Dow, Nasdaq etc) went up above 2% on Fri raising hopes that the markets will rebound on Monday. Which way the markets will go is anyone’s guess, but one thing is clear. Until the overhang of the Euro-zone crisis is over, the market will keep facing hiccups. From our side, we are a little bullish short-term mainly because the strong support of 5165 was maintained on Friday both on daily and weekly charts, but any close below 5165 on a daily chart would change the bias towards the downside. In the long-term, we are of course still in a downtrend until the long-term down-trend line is broken on the upside on a weekly chart.

And what about the recent volume breakouts? We’ll post about them in a followup post with some thoughts on some  stop-loss strategies.
