NSE Stock Prices in Excel in Real Time – Microsoft Excel is a super software capable of doing a lot of calculations and providing results easily, some of which many Technical Analysis Applications would fail to provide.

Getting real-time data into Excel can be a very powerful tool, as the possibilities in excel are huge and only limited by your imagination.

With only a little knowledge of Excel, you can implement new strategies/ideas, back-test them and even paper trade these strategies before going live.

Excel can sometimes do things which many technical analysis applications may not be able to. For eg..:—

  • Create complex trading systems and conduct technical analysis calculations directly in your worksheets.
  • Build and backtest your strategies involving more than 1 scrip eg. pair trading strategies
  • Very useful for tracking a large number of options simultaneously eg. Tracking their open interest/price variations, while studying the put/call ratios & option Max Pain analysis

  • Can even help you with data mining and pattern exploration studies
  • Keeping track of complex options strategies where a number of options need to be tracked at the same time
  • Just simply tracking your portfolio in real time
  • .. and a lot more…

To be able to enable this ability and more, you will need to exploit the Excel’s RTD Function. The RTD function is an excellent way to retrieve real-time data from a program that supports COM automation.

Some older applications used DDE to import real-time data into Excel but this is now a thing of the past as we have the more powerful and versatile RTD function in Excel.

TrueData.Velocity.2.0 is one such software which can provide you with NSE Stock Prices in Excel. This application can help you analyse 200 – 500 NSE Equities, Indices, ETFs, Futures & Options in Real-time in Excel at the same time

With Velocity, also using Excel’s ADD IN functionality to add forms, you would be able to also download Tick, 1, 5, 15, 60 min & EOD Historical Data.

      It’s possible, but not from the server. you will need to derive these by calculating the same, by either doing it directly in the excel spreadsheets (if possible) or else by developing a specific macro for the same.

      I guess you would need to connect with some macro experts who could help you with this.

      For now, we provide this as historical data from Excel and also directly from Velocity.

      For Live snapshot updates of 1 / 5 / 15 min updates we have APIs but not for Excel. We are working to get this functionality into Excel in the near future.

      You can add the symbols and get the symbols.
      However, we are yet to include Inplied Voltility.
      As of now, you would need to calculate it yourself.

      You can make the sheet yourself. Use your imagination to the fullest

      1) For every symbol, you wish to add, use this formula..


      2) Replace BANKNIFTY here with the symbol of your choice.

      Also, replace LAST with the other fields which are possible. Use these in your formulas…
