ODIN is the leading online trading platform in India. Developed by Financial Technologies in 1998, ODIN trading software has the largest share of a trading platform in India for over 2 decades.

As of Dec 2019, 1000+ clients across 400 cities and over a million active end users. The market share of ODIN is falling drastically since 2013 after the fraud at NSEL was surfaced in 2013.

The parent company 63 moons is still going through the fraud at NSEL. This adversely affected the ODIN platform. In April 2018, the prosecutors attached the intellectual property rights of ODIN to this case. The freeze on ODIN IPR means that the revenue received from the sale of trading technology terminals to brokers would not be accessed to the company.

The features in Odin Diet like intraday historic chart was 60 days and eod data was 21 years and Action replay was in Angel Broking SpeedPro. But Angel Broking discontinue providing Odin Diet for trading hense checked with many other brokers and found no same features are in currnt RIBBON version or 63moons not providing same features to other broking companies. I have mailed for the same to 63moons but no proper reply, two of them call me but dont know about these features. If anyone knows about the same pls inform me. Also inform which other brokers providing same features in ODIN DIET. There are many other trading software in market who providing 60 intraday chart data like Trade Tiger of sharekhan, Ant of Aliceblue, TX3 of Edelweise.

I know. That was the primary reason I completely stopped using Angel Broking as well. ODIN is unmatched. Especially the speed at which trades get executed along with the option to place bulk orders by uploading a CSV file. I am trying to work with Religare to see if they can give me a subscription based ODIN DIET. But I will be really disappointed if the features that were there with Angel Broking has gone missing. I desperately need the bulk order feature.

In ODIN ver. some indicators not working properly. Like BOLLINGER BAND Std. Div. 2 is fixed but in earlier ver. we can slect 2 or any numbers. Some other indicators not in curr ver. dont know why 63moon not added all of previous version.I have complant about same to 63moon thru email but same has been ignored and inform me to contact broker. In earlier ver. you can select oscilators and Indicators separetely but in curr ver. all are mixed and by default numebrs also changed. Earlier ver was fantastic. Current ver. charts improved.
