    Price to Ticks conversion

    Hi,

    Sorry for a stupid question but how to convert the price that is coming from OnMarketDepth handler (e.Price) to value in ticks? I could divide by TickSize but afraid that this may introduce tricky precision errors.

    Thank you.

    Alex, you would always need to be mindful of precision issues arising with your code and working doubles - http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/f...ead.php?t=3929

      Hi Bertrand, thank you for the reply.

      So is there a way to convert price (double) to ticks?

      Or, you suggest just to use this:
      int ticks = (int)Math.Round(price / TickSize)

      ?

        Correct, you would need convert with custom code like you noted.

          Thanks, would you mind to pass the request for the dev team?

          I think we all need a convenience functions!
          double ConvertTicksToPrice(...)
          int ConvertPriceToTicks(...)
