Point Size

Point size is the value of minimum fluctuation for the instrument selected.

Select Automatically Set Point Size to adopt the system data's default.

  • For stocks this will be .01 or 1 cent, depending on the symbol's system data
  • In the case of a futures contract, this will be the value of Minimum Fluctuation (to check this select Action, Actions for "Symbol" and Information. When the Detailed Symbol Information dialog for the futures symbol opens, click on the Futures Specs button in the bottom left to open the Detailed Futures Information dialog box. Minimum Fluctuation is the second group of settings on this dialog box.)

If you wish to manually adjust the value of the point size, de-select Automatically Set Point Size and enter the desired value in the area with the heading Point Size.
