Please note that the data feed from BSE can be delayed up to 15 minutes or more. The data feed is neither real-time, nor tick-by-tick, or a candlestick (OHLC) snapshot for a time interval.

The data feed we receive carries the current price, or the LTP (last traded price) at that specific point in time when the data is sent/received; please factor-in the stream delay. The data feed comprises of the day’s high and day’s low from start of trading session to the end of session, that is, on an expanding window, end-to-end basis

Keeping in view the above restrictions on the data set being used, in the case that contestant(s) have chosen to enter custom entry or exit prices/triggers, but it can happen so, that the price/value selected is not captured within the scope/limitations of the data feed that is being used, and hence, the order does not gets filled/executed/completed. While in real-world real-live feed you may see that your custom/limit-order pricing conditions did occurred/matched with live feed/tick-by-tick data points. But unfortunately due to our data limitations, your order remained unfilled.

Hence, the contestant(s) expressly agrees to having read and understood this aspect the moment they choose to participate in the BigBullLeague, or related contests and agrees to accept this scenario if it so occurs in the order(s) they give, portfolio(s) they create, or the stock(s) they choose. That the contestant(s) fully understand and expressly waives their right to challenge this aspect at any point in time. That the contestant(s) shall accept without recourse, and abide by the decision of ZoomStocks in its entirety.

Deduction Table

Stock Price RangeDeduction (% reduction from gain/loss rupee value)
0-1000No deduction

The reason behind reduction of points from the gain/loss moves of your stock selection is as follows:

  • There is no virtual money involved in the contest
  • Mitigate the impact of big move in high priced stocks - since that makes any reasonable or even swing moves in the other lower priced shares, impossible to match up with the high priced stock move.
  • In reality, we see few investors having the gumption to pick high priced stocks, so this mimics the real-life scenarios
  • BUT, in no way, this is aimed at dissuading or discouraging any investor from participating/trading in high priced stocks in their real world investing decisions.
  • This rule is a step to ensure more even playing field for the participants.
