What are Kite tags, and how to use them?

Kite tags is a feature that allows users to tag a goal or add a reason for a trade. All tags are synced on Console on the next day, allowing users to track the performance based on specific tags. The best way to avoid making mistakes when trading and investing is to do more of what works and less of what doesn’t. This is possible only when the performance is tracked at a trade level, which is now possible with tags. It will soon be available on Coin for mutual funds.
