What is a Flash Trade ?

My order got executed but I do not see my price coming anywhere, in price statistics or in the chart. Could this happen? Yes, this is possible when your orders gets matched among millions of bid and ask ticks which occurs in the Exchange. Trading is technology driven and with the help of technology, millions of ticks, including ask and bid rates flash through the process of converting an order to trade. The Charts or statistics within a defined interval, say for a second, captures only 1 tick for a second while there could be hundreds otherticks or trades occurring within that 1 second and it is highly impossible to capture all of them in the chart or the statistics.

You may however, always cross verify the genuineness of your trades checking the Open, high, low close data for that day in the Exchanges' website. It can also be verified in the Trade Verification module within 5 working day, as provided by various Exchanges viz, NSEBSE and MCX.

NSE will have all the ticks captured under Tick by Tick data feeds and it is best captured in NSE Co-location or within the Exchange premises. This feed costs too high as compared to normal data feed and can be subscribed from NSE's authorized data vendors.
