Effective Sunday, July 10th 2016, the minimum price increment for the CME’s standard-size CAD/USD futures (6C) will be reduced from 1-pip ($10.00 per contract) to 1/2-pip ($5.00 per contract). The shift to half ticks is expected to provide more actionable liquidity.
As a result of this change, users of NinjaTrader will need to update their 6C Futures Instrument “Tick size” property from 0.0001 to 0.00005 to receive accurate quotes and ensure consistent execution prices. Included below are instructions to make the required changes along with a quick video tutorial reviewing the process.
Will update automatically on startup Monday, July 11th. If you wish to manually edit the tick size before then, please use the steps below.
